There have also been a number of other albums: Eks Libris, Dalila den Drevne“, Zainab, Egtved Pigen“, De vilde Svaner” and “Ørsted” to name a few. All of which has earned Sussi numerous awards and accolades.

Sussi Bech is known for her ability to create fun, charming and timeless characters that appeal to both children and adults. Bech’s talent extends beyond the world of comics, as she has also created illustrations for children’s books and educational materials, including DR’s Kaj and Andrea books. In 2016, Sussi made her debut as a children’s author with the books about “Aziru” in ancient Levant. Sussi co-wrote the books with Ingo Milton and provided over 80 illustrations herself.

Throughout her career, Sussi Bech has won great recognition and awards for her work, and her influence on Danish comic book art and literature has been appreciated by colleagues and readers alike.
