Graphic Novel - Kindly Corpses - Symbolic story about death reform - published in Serbia
Published:
KINDLY CORPSES

In 2003, I had the opportunity to work  with Zoran on very important project – Kindly Corpses, the first Serbian graphic novel. Zoran had a great story, and I've had enough of drawing talent so we created a comic book  that immediately became a cult issue of Serbian comics. This issue is printed in a small number of copies – only 500! Now it's time for a brand new edition, with two bonus stories and a gallery full of pictures and illustrations... Rough basis of the story is: The Government announced new regulations and sanctions pertaining to autopsy, funeral, and commemorative services. The main character in the novel is forensic, which is trying to struggle with a new provision – Death Reforms…
 
It's been just over a year when the second edition of "Kindly Corpses"  published. In the meantime, "Corpses" appeared on Paul Gravett’s list of The Best Works in 2011: An International Perspective. What an honor for this Serbian graphic novel!
 
"An experimental work, but beautifully drawn and with a coherent story. This is probably the right way for underground comics to win over a wider audience".
