Summon the librarian ...

... I wish to wallow in nostalgia.
Fellow blogger sparkled the memories of some of my old works, and I started digging, but couldn't find them. But I've found some other old stuff, like this one ...

This is officially my first published work, I even got paid for! : )
The year is 1987 probably. Made for intern newspaper of the company where my parents work(ed). Nepotism has always been one of the favourite Croatian sports! >:)

This illustration was supposed to be a cover for one of the albums of the famous Yugoslav rock singer Branimir Štulić Johnny. Eddy Biukovic did colored version, but they were both dropped.
This must be late 1989.
And, zucker kommst zu letzt (pardon my French) ...

One from the couple of hundreds of pages I did for Gespenster-Geschichten in first half of '90's.
This one, like many others are done in collaboration with Esad Ribic. He did the pencils, I've inked them. It was a complete hack job that we compensated by doing five or six pages in just one night and putting in funny stuff. Having ourselves, our colleagues and friends or local 'celebrities' as characters in the story, for instance.
And, since I'm in such a good mood, let's have a prize contest;
The first one who recognize where's the title and first line of this post coming from, will get my original art as a reward!
Another award (which I haven't decided yet what it will be) goes to the one that lists most of the (in)famous people on that Gespenster page.
Hit it, boys and girls! : )

S obzirom da Dzzuka ne ccita stripove, odgovor mozze biti samo "Outlaw Nation". Asa, u ranim brojevima.

mcn said...

A uz nabrojene vidim Vilija, mozzda Ogija, ccini mi se Mikija (zulufi, sjedi), Zimu iza ssanka, mozzda Dzzuku dolje u fajtu, s maljem.

I opako se vidi da je Esad ljevoruk. :)

Esad....ali nije nest buckast,hmmmmmmm :-)
Darko,bilo bi opiceno izdati complete gespenster na hrvatski..garant zabavni stripovi.
cheers
Mario

Ako nije Ogi, onda je Tudjman.:)

dzuka said...

darko je, naravno, tocno odgovorio, ali ce se jednoclani ziri morat dogovorit izmedju sebe hoce li mu uskratiti nagradu zbog bezobrazluka! >: )
druga mu nagrada, medjutim, ne gine.
vili je prvi slijeva. ispred njega tudjman, esad sjedi, drago plecko stoji, eddy sjedi, darko drzi govor, a onaj iza shanka je biuk, a ne zima.
i, da, eddy i ja u fajtu na donjim kadrovima.
kako je tabla stara nekih tucet godina svi smo mrsaviji za koji tucet kila, a i esad je sebe posebno izromantizirao! >:)

@mario;
"dali sudzuka ruzic iz broja 1460 familija ili pogresno svabi pisali ti ime :-)"
vjerovatno je tocno. i sa njim sam radio par epizoda.

"nasladi tvoj strip je broj 1451/ das gelächter des todes..nice!"
ajme, jel stvarno mislis da znam te epizode po broju i naslovu???!!! :)
vecinu nisam ni vidio objavljene.
al, ajde ju ponesi svakako u erlangen, a smislit cemo i tebi neku nagradu za izuzetno zalaganje! : )

Anonymous said...

Malo je offtopic, ali kad se već radi o ranim radovima...jel bi mogo okačit onaj svoj strip, ne znam kak se zove, ali u prvim kadrovima svira Swordfishtrombones (he came home from the war, with a party in his head) i neki tip zove glavnog lika na tulum, ali bez priče o ratu...to mi je mrak strip, ne sjećam se di sam ga čito, a volio bi ga opet vidit.

Branimir Štulić looks awesome! Bas sam volela Azru...:)

nesto oko nostalgije a zato se i javljam, uglavnom zbog Johhny B. Stulica, upravo citam "Fantoma Slobode", autor Hrvoje Horvat...
iama tu nostalgije, i nekih mojih tripova...retro stanja su valjda normalna....kada sad pomislim na taj kraj 80-tih to i nije bilo tako lose vreme, mozda.

filipe;
fala, i meni je drag. iako bi volio da sam ga bolje nacrtao. izasao je u 'ratnom' Patku. potrazit cu ga, pa okacit, pa da vidi svet! : )
boky, tony;
ja u stvari uopce nisam bio veliki fan azre tada. valjda mi je zbog toga i danas dobra. nije mi se zgadila. :)
