The Optipess comic strip is written and illustrated by Kristian Nygård, and is full of parodied everyday observations with a darkly funny twist. Optipess has been a side project for Kristian for over ten years, and has previously only been published the web and via social media.
The comic has over 100,000 followers on Instagram, and has featured on international pop culture websites, including Reddit.com.
Exploring topical themes with a sharp-eyed gaze, Kristian depicts nerd culture, loneliness, the single life, relationship problems, the zombie apocalypse and much, much more.
“The series also stands out with its many cultural and pop-culture references.”
