Nordicomics project gives the artists a possibility to showcase their artwork outside their own countries and network with other comic artists. This website continues the Nordicomics project by informing about future and past events, artists and all comics related happenings through-out the Nordic countries.

The Finnish Comics Society held the first Nordicomics exhibition and workshop in Helsinki in August 2009. Artists that took part in the workshop where from Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
