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! From 2003 to 2016, Kindly Corpses had three editions. Although bizarre, hermetic, with a specific aesthetics, this is for now the best-selling Serbian strip. It is interesting that this comic usually buy girls and women. Now it's time for a brand new edition - the official publication in English language - 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…
 
"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".
