With its restless and unapologetic style, Homo Line will bypass the queue to be one of the select Finnish Alternative Comics. The look is strong and graphic, illustrations in black and white with an addition of stinging red in the cover. Even though the panels are full to the excess, the grotesque story supports the narrative. This comic is proudly exactly what it is, which doesn’t happen too often.

A combination of prose and comic, this is a well thought beautiful book about a kayaking trip from the White Sea to St. Petersburg. Log markings connect with sketches and maps done under journey, notebook appearance paints scenes of action in an expressive way. Original storytelling benefits occasionally from Cyrillic alphabet. The Jury approved also the charming attachments and flowery design imitating a Russian scarf on the flyleaf.
