(JPG) COMIXCULTURE PROJECT FOLLOW-UP: NEW PUBLICATION IN A MAGAZINE

With issue 16/17 for winter 2011/2012 the Serbian literary and art magazine Kvartal started a series of issues, which will include comics designed in the frames of the comiXculture project. The first issue featured Irfan’s Guitar − comics based on the script by Aida Secic and illustrated by Džaizku.

As a quarterly magazine dedicated to literature, Kvartal, published in Pančevo (across the Danube from Belgrade) has also dedicated its space to illustration and comics. Therefore comiXculture seemed like a project of interest to the editors of the magazine, which already published a story created together by Džaizku (cartoonist from Serbia) and Aida Šečić (writer from Bosnia). So far the series has been received nicely among the readers of Kvartal, which may indicate that this kind of a project has proved interesting to both followers of comics and literature. In the upcoming edition, Kvartal will publish another collaboration − between Toma Pan (cartoonist from Serbia) and Andrej Blatnik (writer from Slovenia). This edition will include as well an overview of the comiXculture project by its coordinator − Yana Genova. (Sasa Rakezic alias Aleksandar Zograf)
