It is a comic about feminism, alcohol, gender, religion, metal-music, everyday disasters and general screw-ups. And, as with many modern Scandinavian comics, the humour is edgy and sometimes over the edge.
Since its beginning, Chez Cuckoo has been collected and published in 9 hardcover books and 28 soft cover albums. It has been published in several major Norwegian comic magazines over the years, and got its own monthly magazine in 2008. Chez Cuckoo comic strips are published daily in several Norwegian newspapers, including Norway’s biggest-selling newspaper «VG». Chez Cuckoo comes as comic strips, short episodes and longer stories.
Chez Cuckoo is created by Torbjørn Lien, born in 1968, who lives with his four children and girlfriend in the western part of Norway.
