News: Lena Furberg interviewed

One of the Swedish comic artists "most deserving wider recognition", as it is usually put in English, is, I think, Lena Furberg. She has since the middle of the 1970s made comics full-time for Min Häst (My Horse), a comic book geared towards people (mostly girls) who are interested in horses and riding. I do my best to make sure that the important and impressive work of Furberg is acknowledged. I was part of awarding Furberg the Unghunden award last year, and I'm definitely including her in the book Swedish Comics History. Still, Furberg is not all that often noticed outside of the group of readers of the comic book, and it is therefore delightful to read a brand new interview in Kristianstadsbladet. Go there and read!
