Karstein Volle: Hi, how are you?

Ossi Hiekkala: Still alive.

KV: Of all the more lucrative and less work intensive disciplines within the visual arts field, why comics?

OH: Hey! I never said I was the shining light in the darkness.

KV: What is your dream project?

OH: Hopefully the next one I am supposed to make. Or it can be my nightmare project. Wait and see.

KV: Where will all this end?

OH: I don’t know where but I know how. It going to end bad. Very bad. Like life always.
