Although there is no own
Disney-comics production in Finland, we have had few artists of our own
to draw and write some Disney stuff. Earliest
efforts may have been
unlisenced, as some WWII period propaganda postcards in which Mickey
Mouse offends Russians.
On this page I have gathered some info about Finnish Disney artists
with samples of work. Click on artists name below to obtain more info.
