This is a collection of beautifully drawn black humoured stories, from Oljaca, a peaceful man from Pannonia Valley, provoked by the harsh reality when one country was disintegrated.
These black humoured stories are a serious and authentic achievement, where a battle with trivial reality resolves with resignation and a little humorous revenge. (Živojin Tamburić,comics editor and critic, from the introduction of the book in English)
This slim but worthwhile volume from Modesty Comics collects single-page gags and extended sketches by Serbian artist Mladen Oljača. Initially appearing in various underground media, these shorts buzz with the kind of fetid vitality that’s often found in the shadows of the mainstream. (Paul Mirek, comics critic, www.brokenfrontier.com)
The book can be bought as a paper book on Amazon.
Bad Boy – Serbian Artist Mladen Oljača Earns His Title in Modesty Comics’ Profane, Political Collection
Throughout Bad Boy, a parade of well-known personalities – religious, mythological, musical, and historical – take the stage for the sake of a throwaway joke or an extended meditation. Some of these hit harder than others, but the artist shows a particular knack for transforming popular fables.more important.
