The next episode of Bella Mortis Presents has been in the works for some time now, and it’s a story that will be split into two parts because it’s a rather lengthy one. Here’s a little preview.. and I would also like to show you how Vanja and I work together when it comes to the manuscript.  She’s drawing sketched pages (sometimes rough and sometimes more detailed), and I draw from these. Sometimes we make some changes in the layout and text and such during the process. Take a look below 🙂

Bella Mortis Presents


A new episode of the short horror comic series Bella Mortis Presents has been published today! The title of this episode is The Sphinx, and it’s a (somewhat silly) story about two tourists who are interested in the mysteries of Ancient Egypt, but ends up getting more than they bargained for..

You can read it here:

As mentioned in my previous blog post, a new episode of “Bella Mortis Presents” was underway, and now it has been released! I also need to make a correction: it’s not over 30 pages, it’s actually over 40 pages, and thus the longest episode in this series so far.

In this episode, I have also added two options for reading: the normal side by side way, or an option where you scroll down to read the pages.

I hope you’ll enjoy it! 🙂


Bella Mortis is soon going to be back again! And it’s been a while. Time surely flies.

While our Patrons have gotten several Sally the Ghost Hunter updates with batches of new pages every time, the latest update of Bella Mortis Presents was in February 2018. Previously, I have added episodes in “seasons” with 6 episodes each, but some of the planned stories will be much longer than many of the earlier episodes, so I have decided to change the way this horror comic series is updated. From now on, I’ll update it whenever I have a new episode ready.

Speaking of which: a new episode is now close to being released! It is called “Hunger“, and the story is set in the colonial times in the US. This episode will be over 30 pages, and thus one of the more lengthier episodes in the series.

Bella Mortis is celebrating four years today, and for that occasion I have decided to make a quick Top 10-list over my personal favorite episodes.

So far there’s 18 episodes from three seasons (six episodes per seasons), and it’s almost two years since the last episode. Yeah, it’s been a while, but as soon the next episode of Sally The Ghost Hunter is finally finished, which I’ve worked on-and-off for five years  now in between all the other projects, I’ll start right away with new episodes. Vanja have already written the episodes to fill the next seasons, and I look really forward to draw some horror shorts again.

Here we go (not in any particular order):


Pizza Delivery

This episode is one of my favorites, probably number one, because Vanja and I had a lot of fun with the brainstorming and collaboration for the script, throwing around a lot of ideas for the progress and the ending. And we chose a pretty meaty one. With its 40 pages it’s so far the longest episode.Bon appetit!



The Window

In this episode, a prank goes horribly wrong. Fun fact: The house in this episode is a reference from The Sallie House, and the window from the American Gothic painting. I really enjoyed drawing from those references, so this is thus one of my favorites.



The Cabin

The first episode with the introduction of Bob Sims the Exorcist and Bella Mortis herself. Also watch out for a quick cameo by Vanja and I. The Norwegian-inspired mountain landscapes was a real joy to draw, which made this first episode fun to work with.



Found Footage

A young couple are hiking in the deepest part of the woods, where they find a video camera with some disturbing images. While I have to admit that I was really, really tired of drawing trees upon finishing this episode, I still think back to it as a very fun episode to draw, and I liked the “found footage” theming.



Flower Girls

If you want blood and boobies, you’ve got it! I really liked being able to draw some tits, cryptids and monster girls in this episode, and the jungle theme was really fun to draw as well (warming a bit up for the Zombolia project!).



Your Favorite Christmas

A local newspaper is having their annual drawing contest for kids, where the children can draw their favorite Christmas. The editor is enjoying the contributions so far, until a boy named Tim is sharing a far more… well, unconventional Christmas memory, to put it mildly. What I really liked about drawing this episode, was trying to go for the “child’s drawing” look.




Vanja is a big fan of sea-monsters, creature-feature-flicks and overall the deepest mysteries of the ocean, which is reflected by this episode. And I got to draw a huge sea-monster over two pages, which also ended up on a T-shirt. So I had a lot of fun with this one!



The Smiling ghost

In this episode, a girl thinks she’s seeing a smiling woman at the end of the stairs. What I enjoyed about working on this episode, was drawing the actual ghost woman and her appearance…and I also liked doing that “happy” ending 😉




A young man is revisiting the forest he used to play in as a kid. He had a vivid imagination, but certain things proves to have been a bit too real. In this episode, I had a lot of fun drawing the boy’s imaginative monsters, and the slight “fantasy” tone in it.



Cabin Fever

A family is going to their cabin for the winter holiday, but a snow-storm keeps them locked inside. After a trip outside to bring in some firewood, the parents starts acting strange…very strange. In this episode I had to draw snow-filled scenery, something that was quite fun to do. And of course, there were some blood ‘n gore to draw as well, which is right up my alley! 😉


And at last, some honorable mentions: the rest of the episodes!

Vanja’s been providing me with convenient scripts that have both given me guidance and freedom when creating these comics, so like I said, I’m already looking forward to start on the next season!
