Lars Dahl began drawing comics in 1973. In 1976, he made his debut as a comic artist with 'Kaa, den skøre slange' ('Kaa, the crazy snake') in Seriemagasinet. After that, his work appeared in several amateur fanzines in a more realistic style. In 1983, he started the comic workshop 'Hjelm Påbudt ('Hardhat Area') with Mogens Gårdsmann and Torsten Overgaard, producing comics like 'Sweet Love'. In 1987, Dahl and Gårdsmann began the pirate series 'Kystens brødre' ('The Brothers of the Coast'). However, as they could not agree on the drawing style, the collaboration ended after only five pages. Dahl continued on his own, and the album finally appeared in 1994.
