Flatland - cover by smokewithoutmirrors Flatland - cover by smokewithoutmirrors
Flatland, my 24 Hour Comic from 2011, has now been polished up and will be running at Smackjeeves from now on. I'll be updating on Tuesdays and Fridays, two pages a week from now on - and barring any unforeseen accidents, I'll be keeping that schedule.

It's.... about birds and deserts and black skies and blood. Quite a bit of blood. But it's one of those stories that is open to interpretation - it can be about anything you want.

Start from the beginning - read Flatland on Smackjeeves!

Dude, its a classic novel. Just search for Flatland on Wikipedia.

Oh, right - that one! I've never acquainted myself with the book directly, but now that you mention it, I remember seeing it referenced in Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot or something like that.

Funnily enough, my title isn't inspired by that at all; I got the idea from the Swedish translation of a Romanian novel-title, and then translated it into English. Sort of. >.>

What was the Swedish title?

"Flackland" - where the Swedish word "flack" pretty much means flat. I think (because Wikipedia is being a bit mysterious on that point) that it's the translation of the Romanian novel Niederungen by Herta Müller. I've never actually read it, but I saw the title once and it got my brain going. It was published as Nadirs in English, I believe.

Jag är också svensk; flack är ett svenskt ord - det används kanske inte så mycket längre, men det är ett ord. Från SAOL: " flack adj. - flat, platt, ytlig, banal".

Jag använder mig förstås av de första två betydelserna.

T.ex kan det användas när man talar om hur ett bergigt eller backigt landskap blir plattare; det blir alltså flackare.
