Anna Sommer is a comics artist and illustrator. Her debut graphic novel, Damen Dramen, published in 1996, established her name in the alternative comics scene. Etched, pen-and-ink and papercut works followed, all distinguished by Sommer's clear, flowing line and unsparing dark humour. Nominated for the 2018 Best Album award at Angoulême, The Unknown is her first book in English and marks her return to full-length comics after a ten-year hiatus. She lives in Zurich, Switzerland.
