Once upon a time there was a king with seven sons. The six oldest ones rode out into the world, found six princesses and wanted to return home with them. On the way back, however, a troll transformed them all into stone. And so the seventh brother set out to find his brothers – and perhaps to find his own happiness along the way. Throughout his bizarre travels, he resorts to the help of his horse, a wolf, an elephant – and even a saxophone. MULEGUTTEN is an ironically written and wildly illustrated comic based on a Norwegian fairy tale that discusses themes of bravery, fearlessness and love. The fantastical, somber illustrations brilliantly contrast the satirical text. Oyvind Torseter is a first-time guest at the ilb and will be presenting MULEGUTTEN for the first time in Germany. “A little masterpiece” (Andreas Platthaus, FAZ).
