Nemi gets her own book!

A million Brits already wake up with Nemi each morning on the train whilst flicking through their copy of the Metro newspaper. Now, however, Norwegian comic star Nemi looks set to further conquer the UK as she gets her own book - and you can win a copy of it here!

Nemi, the vegetarian, cynical/romantic, hilariously honest twenty-something Goth, will hit stores nationwide with a brand new collection from artist Lise Myhre. Hang out in the pub with Nemi and her friends, including her flatmate, the blue-haired Cyan. Hear her opinions on romance and dating, watch her watch TV in her untidy flat, learn how she feels about birch trees, spiders and blondes, and generally experience the highs and lows of being Nemi in the modern world!

Named after Italy’s ancient (and supposedly enchanted) Lake Nemi and fictional hero Inigo Montoya of The Princess Bride (one of Myhre’s favourite films), Lise Myhre’s Nemi is a Goth-tinged heroine for the modern twenty-something. Already a superstar in Europe, Nemi also has a daily circulation of over one million in the UK, where her strips appear in the morning Metro paper across 16 major cities.

Created when Myhre “set out to find an imaginary friend”, Nemi has struck a chord across borders both geographical and linguistic, and both Nemi and her look-alike creator are now growing in popularity in the English-speaking world, as Titan launches this hilarious hardback – Nemi’s first ever English-language collection – filled with her trademark dry wit and independent take on the world.

Lise Myhre is the artist and writer of Nemi, and also designs CD covers and illustrates books. She lives in her native Norway. Nemi (Vol. 1) is out on 26 October, published by Titan Books and priced £9.99.
