Officially since 2010, the idea of its founding goes far back in the past

Only in the Offset Print printing shop in Novi Sad

Through distributors, all small and large bookstores. Direct cooperation with comic book stores in our country and the neighbouring ones. Showrooms, fairs, and all comic book gatherings

08. Alliances
Foreign publishers who show understanding for our small market, friends, relatives, five or six home comic book publishers we’re friends with, but, above all, those who believe in our taste

Baru, Chabouté, Jason Lutes, Pascal Rabaté. For 2014, we plan a graphic novel from our country, Corporate pandemonium, Penevski/Zolotić.

One steers, refills the tank from time to time, the other mostly rows, adding fuel to the flames sometimes
