Stripburger Magazine

“In 1992 the first issue of Stripburger, now legendary magazine, was published. What compelled the forefathers of Stripburger to start a magazine was the lack of a comic magazine in Slovenia. To this very day it remains the one and only comic magazine in the country of Slovenia. Because of the small local production, explorative tendencies of the editors and the inescapable bind between local production and global trends, the magazine was publishing comics by foreign as much as local artists – mélange of styles and narratives that remains one of the most appealing features of Stripburger. The editorial visited numerous festivals, book fares and galleries and succeeded in erousing the attention of the international public. In January 2001 the magazine won an award at the International Festival of Comic Art in Angouleme in the category for the best fanzine. Big attention was also given to special editions of the magazine, namely Stripburek, Comics from the Other Europe, anthology of Eastern European comics and the newest book to come out of the Stripburger kitchen – Honey Talks, – comics inspired by painted beehive panels.”
