Stripburger hits 25, and thus still sucks
Slovenian comics magazine Stripburger, one of the longest running venues for underground and alternative comics, has been running for twenty five years and, by their own accord, has miserably failed to die young. What’s more, they just presented their seventieth issue during November, looking back at a quarter century of graphic weirdness.
The issue sports a brilliant cover by Caroline Sury, coinciding with her exhibition Voodoo Entartete Kunst that takes place in Ljubljana all through December. It also features contributions by a whole host of Stripburger alumni, reflecting on the magazine and the role it’s played (and is still playing) in the European comics scene.
As ever, you are also presented with a plethora of great short comics from Slovenia and across Europe (and beyond), including contributions by Marcel Ruijters, Matthias Lehmann, Peter Kuper, Aleksandar Zograf and Jakob Klemenčič
Stripburger 70 is available at the (spanking new!) Stripburger Online Store for 7 Euros (international). You get a poster thrown in for free!
