Bjørn H. Samset and Arild Midthun (ill.)
The Fight for the Future

Climate researcher Bjørn H. Samset and cartoonist Arild Midthun have joined forces to create Embla, an exciting graphic novel that shows us what is happening to our planet while also giving us research-based knowledge about the choices we will have to make.

Through an exciting fictional tale, Bjørn H. Samset and Arild Midthun want to share knowledge about the climate changes that our planet is going through and show what challenges we will face when choosing a strategy for the future.

On a trip to New York, someone attempts to mug young blogger Embla, and suddenly she finds herself in the world of the gods and jötnar, where she encounters opponents and challenges the likes of which she could never have imagined. It is she—as a human—who must save the world.

An original and important eye-opener for young readers!

Midthun and Samset have accomplished the feat of turning the climate issue into an educational and visually engaging comic book.

I was thrilled to see this book - my hopes were extremely high - and it doesn't disappoint. Wonderful work throughout. Hugely recommended.
