In our article, we analyze two comics albums (G!psy Com!x and Diary of a Mad Artist) by the Finnish Roma artist Kiba Lumberg (born 1956), a versatile artist and a political and cultural activist. Both books were published in 2010, but parts of G!psy Com!x date back to 1991. Whereas Diary of a Mad Artist is autobiographical, G!psy Com!x approaches Roma issues on a more general level. We employ an intersectional approach to the comics and ask what kinds of identities and forms of self-representation are brought to the fore in the comics narratives. In the books, the artist’s Roma background is visible, but this identity is intertwined with other, even more important identifications: the artist’s identity, gender identity, the sexual identity of a lesbian, and issues of ability and disability. We discuss Lumberg’s comics in a broad contextual and intertextual framework, including her literary output.
