Yep, this one is partly based on a line from a Mountain Goats song. Oh and this comic arrives super late! I was at a book signing and release party last night for super talented friends Mac & Andreas who just dropped their book “Ingen Visste”. I haven’t delved far into the book yet, but […]

Oops, too grotesque? Don’t worry, Instagram will probably let me know if I stepped over some kind of line. Oh, and this comic is possibly inspired by a recent visit to my cousin. Here’s hoping he shows this comic to his kids (for educational purposes)!
Here, enjoy this wholesome comic! And yeah, I was at the new comics festival over the weekend put together by my book publisher – and I finally got to see (and smell!) the finished Optipess book! It is indeed lovely! Oh, and the festival was a blast (although not particularly crowded). But it was super […]
Also, Norwegians: I will present my book on Saturday, on the Gyldendal Tegneseriedager festival! I’ve only seen a picture of the finished thing and I can’t wait to feel it in the flesh. Order the book here (ships within Norway): https://www.ark.no/boker/Kristian-Nygard-Optipess-9788205527928
Here is a comic about (never) waking up! Also, the release party for my book has been announced! If you happen to be in Oslo on October 9, please stop by and say hello. Or “hallo”, if you will. Oh, and I will of course sign and sell my book. Here is the link to […]
New recurring character! Actually, come to think of it, I’ve probably made a similarly Shoggoth-looking beast at some point earlier. It’s a bit early for them to get their own tag, though. (We should at least get to know each other first!)
Happy Friday 13th! This is the exact plot of the Freddy vs Jason movie(s?), right? As usual, I did zero research for my Friday 13th-comic!
Meant for this comic to be posted on Friday which was #FrankensteinDay (Mary Shelley’s birthdate), but had to push it due to being swamped by last minute book corrections. But the (by now) finished thing looks FANTASTIC. Oh, and it is out September 26 here in Norway! You can preorder it here! Also, stay tuned […]
Another horror-tinged comic! I like to make these from time to time, and I hope you got either spooked or amused (or both!) by this one. Oh, there’s also an exclusive full-page horror comic over at my Patreon. Support Optipess at the $3+ per month level and you’ll get access!
Here is a comic about preparing every iteration of dialogue in your head before having a conversation! I’m not the only one who does this, right? …right? Oh, and in other insane news, ever since starting drawing Optipess I’ve numbered my comics, and this particular comic is number 1000! This doesn’t quite mean that there […]
This is a fairly accurate depiction of the insomnia I went through last week. Either my mind was completely on edge, or entirely dormant, while my body felt the complete opposite. Fun times!
Another comic strip arrives! Due to a little bit of poor planning on my part I had to scramble to get it done in one evening – not how I usually work, but it turned out alright. So now I’m suitably exhausted and figured it would be a great time to mention that if you’re […]
Oh yeah, that superhero thing was decent enough, I guess. This was actually mostly inspired by playing through the super excellent indie game Return of the Obra Dinn for the first time – which pretty much was an unforgettable experience. Highly recommended!
