Agent - Translator
My goal is simple – to promote what I think are good comics and to help creators, who have little or no time to promote their works internationally.
I am the Danish translator of the highly acclaimed Mouse Guard series by David Petersen, ApocalyptiGirl by Andrew Maclean, Icelandic translator of Mortensen’s Escapades by Lars Jakobsen as well as being the English language translator of Arminius: The Battle of Teutoburg and The Mountains Ablaze by Jacob Thybo and Tall Tales of Midgaard by Bjørk Matias Friis.
If you are looking for representation in Denmark, or internationally, feel free to contact me and I will get back to you within 10-15 business days.
