When you have in one place a complete overview of the most important
authors, magazines and critics of comics, it means you have a guide which
you can absolutely trust.
The Comics We Loved by Zivojin Tamburic, Zdravko Zupan and Zoran Stefanovic
represents a pioneering achievement in the history and critique of the
9th Art in Serbia and Yugoslavia.
The Comics We Loved is the book that in the 21st century will draw attention
to this previously less emphasised cultural factor, which shaped consciousness
of contemporaries in the previous century.
In this book, these intrepid, discriminating compilers have realised
an exceptional achievement by combing diligently through thousands of
pages of comics and comics reviews to distil a captivating alphabet of
artists and writers who have shaped and enhanced not only the comics of
their homeland but in several cases the comics of the world.
