JUST A COMIC… is a self-published publication born out of my work on the online Facebook-comic by the same name. Over time, the idea crystallized and so I registered and launched this comics magazine, where I could regularly publish my own work, on my own terms. That gives me the freedom to do whatever I want and not be a slave to deadlines (since I also have other jobs), and over time present in one place my entire work in the field of comics. One of my goals is also to popularize the webcomics form, which still hasn’t taken root in our region (former Yugoslavia and neighboring countries). Therefore, besides the printed Serbo-Croatian language edition of Justa a comic… there is also its electronic publication, as well as an English-language version whose goal is to take the world by storm… ;) Thank you for your time and patience, see you in the funny papers (as often as possible)!!!

SAMO STRIP... je samostalno autorsko izdanje nastalo kao rezultat mog rada na online (Facebook) stripu istog naziva. Vremenom se ideja iskristalizovala, te sam registrovao i pokrenuo ovaj strip magazin kako bih mogao redovno da objavljujem svoje radove, pod sopstvenim uslovima. To mi daje slobodu da radim šta i kako hoću, a da ne robujem rokovima jer se ipak bavim i drugim poslovima, te da, vremenom, na jednom mestu predstavim kompletan svoj rad na polju stripa. Jedan od ciljeva mi je i uvođenje standarda elektronskog stripa koji ovde na našim prostorima (bivša Jugoslavija i komšiluk) još nije uhvatio korene. Tako da osim što se Samo strip... štampa na srpsko-hrvatskom jeziku, postoji istovetno elektronsko izdanje kao i izdanje na engleskom jeziku koje se bavi osvajanjem celog sveta...;) Hvala na pažnji, strpljenju i čitamo se što je češće moguće!!!

Unlike previous issues, this third one features exclusively mu Anti-war comics which I made during the conflicts in former Yugoslavia from 1991 to 1994, which were published regularly by the weekly magazine STAV.

Za razliku od prethodnih brojeva, u ovom trećem nalaze se isključivo moji anti-ratni stripovi koje sam radio za vreme ratnih dešavanja na prostoru Jugoslavije 1991-1994. a koje je redovno objavljivao nedeljnik STAV.

SAMO STRIP... / JUST A COMIC... #4

Issue number four, just like the third one, deviates from the standard formula, this time also with a greater page count. It features a compete episode of SUPER STATE, a kind of continuation of my anti-war and anti-political work in comics. The first half of it was serialized in the weekly magazine NEZAVISNI, and the comic itself is a critique of our society and the irrational phenomena that occur within it. It portrays the post-war era and the time of citizen and student protests (1995-1997) through the eyes of the antihero Super State.

Četvrti broj, baš kao i treći, odstupa od standardne forme – ovog puta i većim brojem strana. Donosi kompletnu epizodu stripa SUPER STATE, koji je svojevrsni nastavak mog anti-ratnog i anti-političkog aktivizma u stripu. Prva polovina je objavljivana u nastavcima u nedeljniku NEZAVISNI, a sam strip se bavio kritikom društva i iracionalnim pojavama u njemu. Opisuje posleratni period i vreme građanskih i studentskih protesta (1995-1997) kroz vizuru antiheroja Super State-a.

U ovom broju predstavljen je i onlajn strip magazin MojStrip kao i ekipa koja na njemu radi.
