Kristian Hammerstad’s teen comic style is fantastically skewed-nostalgic

Archie comics lose their charm once the late-teens kick in, but then there’s Kristian Hammerstad to coax you in to his world where the characters look like Archie and Betty and Veronica but are definitely not them. Wave goodbye to milkshakes and beach volleyball and say hello to discoloured skin, mutant ape men and throbbing eyeballs. The work of Kristian Hammerstad is simultaneously reminiscent of old garage metal gig posters and those Archie comics that it is all at once a charmingly nostalgic sight to behold.
