Finnish Disney Comics History

Finnish Disney-comics artists

Sisu, Sauna and Ducks!
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.
