Greetings Comics Royals!
After a successful run throughout Europe, an import from the northern wilderness of Sweden will be taking North America by storm this Monday. Comics Kingdom is excited to announce the release of “Carpe Diem” by Niklas Eriksson on Monday!
“Carpe Diem” features hilarious single-panel comic strips about any conceivable day – from the dawn of the universe, to the ages of dinosaurs, knights, and witches, to modern-day couch potatoes, and beyond. Available in both comic strip and single-panel formats, “Carpe Diem” will debut on May 4th online at ComicsKingdom.com and in newspapers nationwide. Don't forget to add it your Favorites and check to see if your local newspaper publishes it.
