Paul Gravett’s Tips -The Best of 2011

Paimen is also a debut, although Sailamaa has already made herself a name with her short stories. The tale takes place during a little over 24 hours in a small town in northern Finland. The main character is a young man working in a bakery. Sailamaa evokes impressions in a subtle manner. The point of view is most of the time the main character’s but a lot of the important small events and characters are on the peripheries of the panels – and of the attention of the character. Sailamaa’s loose brush lines reveal her enjoyment of drawing, especially in the images of the details of nature. It might be a rather demanding reading experience but is certainly rewarding.” – Harri Römpötti
