Oh, the horror !!!

As some of you know, in early '90's I've been working for German publisher on short horror stories, but most of you never really saw those pages. I've never hide the fact that it was a complete hack-job and that 90% of it was awful crap. Some of you might think I'm exaggerating, but here are the facts; I wasn't really skilled at the time, I never did my best working on them (if I had any enthusiasm, it would vanish after first page), we weren't allowed to use lots of blacks, draw blood and spilled entrails and - on top of it all - they would color it like this ...

The rumor was that some nuns in monastery were hired to do the colors. It was never confirmed, but by the looks of it I guess it could be true! >:)

Hm, a zašto nisu dozvoljavali crne površine? Kad je već horor strip, valjda je logično da bude mračan. Je li to neki fazon da se uštedi na štampi, tj. da se manje troši crna boja?

Primetio sam i ranije da su ti stripovi za Nemce bili 'beli', ali mislio sam da je to zato što vas je mrzelo da dodajete senke ;)

iskreno, ne znam. al vjerujem da su htjeli da se vidi sto vise detalja, jer je to onda, kao, vise truda, pa je to onda, kao, bolje. a mozda je razlog sto su to ipak stripovi za djecu, pa da se ne preplase! >:)
nije tu nikad logike bilo s tim poslom.
