And here's information about a couple of signings by Lise Myhre, author of the popular strip Nemi...

On a train or in an airport or when forced to be polite, secretly we repeat word for word what Nemi would say but usually only quietly behind perfectly glossed lips. - Tori Amos


Norwegian superstar creator Lise Myhre will be signing copies of her new book Nemi vol. 2 on Thursday 13th November in Forbidden Planet, 179 Shaftesbury Ave, 6-7pm and on Saturday 15th November in Borders, 120 Charing Cross Road, 1-2pm.

In my opinion, Nemi is a mix of how we are, how we wish we were, and how we're glad we're not. - Lise Myhre

Nemi Montoya, the cool, romantic, strong-willed, cynical, sexy and all-too-honest twenty-something goth, returns to share more frank and hilarious moments in Nemi Vol. 2 [Titan Books, 9.99].

Featuring an exclusive introduction by singer-songwriter Tori Amos, this brand new hardback collection from artist Lise Myhre gathers together some of the hilarious highs of the Nemi strip. Hang out with Nemi and her mates, including her best friend, the blue-haired Cyan, as they deal with love, friendship, inebriation, sex... and the other really important things in life!

Created when Myhre "set out to find an imaginary friend" and named after Italy's ancient (and supposedly enchanted) Lake Nemi and fictional hero Inigo Montoya of The Princess Bride (one of Myhre's favourite films), Lise Myhre's Nemi Montoya is a goth-tinged heroine for the modern twenty-something, tapping into all the fun, fervour and frustrations of the 21st Century woman. Nemi's first volume has reprinted multiple times.
