In the 1990s, Krantz becamse one of the pioneers of Swedish autobiographical comics in a kitchen-sink realist style, inspired by Harvey Pekar and other North Americans. This started with the release of his album Superangst in 1993 and has continued to this day with works such 1981, Nollad, Nazi Beatles, Cykel-Hippie, Vänster Vänster and Punk Provocateur.
