This issue of Stripburger possesses the usual amazing array of Eastern European selections, with forays into Northern Europe, and even North and South America at times. It somehow maintains both its progressive “big-boy” anthology aesthetic, while also give a nod to the ‘zines of old, with a healthy review section. Finland’s Jyrki Heikkinen is interviewed, as is the Novo Doba collective responsible for the Comics Festival in Belgrade. The handful of robust reviews in the back included some selections I couldn’t make out (about half of the content is NOT translated), but it did include Daniel Clowes’ Death Ray and Joann Sfar’s The Little Prince. Notable pieces which struck a chord for me included the thick line weight of Marcel Ruijters (Netherlands), the ink washes of Pete Heyes (Great Britain) about Ugandan atrocities, the old fashioned Western from Marek Rubec (Czech Republic), Dunja Jankovic (which US readers will recognize from her Sparkplug Comics work), as well as the slight and effervescent relationship turmoil of Miha Ha (Slovenia). Stripburger remains a great snapshot of time and place, with an overall density and heft, which is a bargain at 2.5 Euro. You can get your hands on it from any number of distributors, including right here at Poopsheet Foundation. Grade A-.
