A quiet, whimsical world from an Argentinian newcomer. "In EDEN, Argentinian cartoonist Pablo Holmberg has created a beautiful new world, one where it rains angels, where trees, stars, and rivers are alive, and where the interconnectedness of all things is readily apparent. His comics are gentle, at times serene, with a delicate good humor that doesn't ignore the shadowy side of life. Discovering Holmberg's work was a revelation to me, and EDEN makes for a perfect point of entry into his work." -- John Porcellino, KING-CAT COMICS AND STORIES. Argentinean artist Pablo Holmberg creates a bucolic, medieval folktale in Eden, where nature is the protagonist, and characters are the scenery. Follow a king as he converses with the moon, a star as it is born, and many more in four-panel strips that combine the playfulness of a Sunday comic with the simplicity of a haiku. Surreal yet friendly and approachable, each strip celebrates the thrill of being alive and encourages the reader to do the same. Eden is Holmberg's chimerical cosmos where the author's imaginative storytelling is purposely reliant on the reader's interpretation. A playful new collection of comic strips which were originally syndicated on his website, Holmberg reinvents the comic strip convention by emphasizing situations and natural landscapes rather than personalities and human interaction.
PABLO HOLMBERG was born in 1979 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After obtaining a degree in science and communication, he began to focus on cartooning. Holmberg comics have been serialized each week on his website since 2004.
