Swedish Comics Advent Calender

This year, waiting for Christmas just got a bit more interesting. For each day, Swedish television releases a new short animation based on the comics by some of the best artists in Sweden: Sara Granér, Liv Strömqvist, Nina Hemmingsson, Martin Kellerman, Ulf Lundqvist and Jan Stenmark. This Advent calender will continue until Christmas Eve, and all episodes will be available until the end of the year, so go to SVT Play and check it out.

The really good thing about these animations, apart from them being based on comics by some really talented artists, is that the animators have stayed true to the original comics, not adding too much animation or talk, but simply adjusting them to a moving media, making them a mix of comics and animation. Really interesting, and fun.
