n the beginning, this web site was dedicated to the couple of unusual anniversaries; 100 years of comic strips and 60 years of comic strips in Croatia. But it outgrew my first ideas and aspirations. Now, this bunch of 100+ web pages is dedicated to the everyone in love with the comic strip art. And the purpose of this web-site is far more to reach – in this way we call upon our minds the generations of all cartoonists & comic artists who unselfishly engaged themselves in creating the body of work of extraordinary imagination, the everlasting spring of inspiration for the generations to come.

I hope this web site will encourage young authors, cartoonists, writers, critics and laymen to contribute in creating much richer comic strip tradition, both in the Croatia and the whole world.
