Weneetryhl was first created by Paul Arne Kring in 1969 and was heavily inspired by the movie BARBARELLA. The first few stories were drawn in a YELLOW SUBMARINE psychadelic style, for the enjoyment of PAK and his friends. While PAK actually ended up drawing a 100 page book in the early 70’s, he lost interest in the character and began pursuing other interests.

After taking a 35 year long break from the character and a 16 year hiatus from comics, having created a female detective BOLETTE HANSEN in the late 80’s, PAK felt the need to get back into comics. Being a huge fan of BARB WIRE and Lara Croft, he remembered his old heroine Weneetryhl and decided to revive the character in 2007.

As the character had been put on ice for 35 years, he decided that she had been placed in liquid nitrogen for 35 years herself and having previously existed in the year 25.025 (based on the Seeger & Evans song ”In the Year 2525”) she was revived into the year 25.060, which was also the name of the first album in the new series.

Though the story was supposed to be a one-off, the ideas started pouring out and suddenly this radically thinking heroine, out of her time, woke up in a society that she helped create, while it in turn doesn’t know what to make of her.

After being revived from a 35 year slumber, Weneetryhl finds that she no longer knows the world she helped create. Instead, she choses to explore the galaxy and soon finds herself in trouble.

Having crashed on a water logged planet, Weneetryhl meets a fellow crash survivor, Ploid Spuni, who has already been causing trouble with the fanatically religious population of the strange city in the sea.

Having traveled the galaxy together, Weneetryhl and Ploid Spuni once again find themselves in a precarious situation – Stranded in the cretaceous, they must locate a rescue beacon and more importantly, avoid getting eaten by roaming dinosaurs.
Copenhagen in the 1920’s is just as roaring as the famed NY century. Bolette Hansen is a crime novelist, who suddenly finds herself caught up the criminal underground of the danish capital. Originally published by Ekstrabladet newspaper in the 80’s, it was recently rerealsed in a collected 3 story edition.
