From our continental correspondent – Stripburger 61 is here
The announcement of a new issue of the Slovenian periodical, Stripburger, should be welcome news for all lovers of alternative or experimental comics. This, the sixty-first issue was published last month, and contains no less than thirty three pages in colour.

The main reason for this is a quite extensive view on Norwegian comics, with contributions by Jason, Bendik Kaltenborn, Lars Fiske, Kristoffer Kjølberg, Christopher Nielsen, Anna Fiske, Inga H. Sætre, Sindre W. Goksøyr and Martin Ernstsen and an essay by Erle Marie Sørheim. There’s also work from Slovenia (Martin Ramoveš and David Krančan) and from the UK (Alex Potts).

The more than exquisite cover for this issue, featuring what looks like a Vampire smurf, is by Bendik Kaltenborn. You can get your Stripburger fill (in English) for a mere 6 Euros (more or less, depending on where you live) from their website or via e-mail to core (at)mail(dot)ljudmila(dot)org.
