Pick of the Fortnight – š! Issue #13 – Life is Live


What comes to mind when you think of Latvia? Eurovision song contest maybe? That it’s just some random country in Eastern Europe? Well scrap that. Latvia is where kuš! was founded back in 2007. So when you think of Latvia, you should most definitely think awesome comics.
