It's a lovely summer day in Stockholm, and I was feeling very lucky that I had the weekend off at exactly the right time for Sweden's annual comic show: 'SIS 14' / Stockhoms Internationella Seriefestival 2014.

Heading up the escalator, I was joined by a young man who was wearing a 'Captain America' outfit. Cosplay ahoy! It made me speculate: how would Sweden's national character be reflected symbolically?

With the help of some convention staff, this is the result. Thanks Magnus, Sarah!
