Labyrint, 2016, 380 pages, b/w, 15 x 20 cm, ISBN 978-80-87260-82-1

A man and his girlfriend go to visit his family, only to find their home destroyed and his father Frankensteining his siblings. What’s going on? The couple is about to discover that nothing is as it seems: not their bodies; not the structures they inhabit (there are no doors); and not the police that wander in and out of their lives. And, no matter how many armed standoffs and car chases there are, you can never escape your parents — or the dead body under the kitchen table. Drawn in a slashing pen and ink style with raw crosshatching and heavy blacks, the author’s German Expressionist-influenced visual approach adds to the intense, claustrophobic feel of the work, like a graphic novel collaboration between Gary Panter and Edvard Munch. Based on the author’s dreams, The Excavation’s surreal verisimilitude recalls cult films like The Forbidden Zone and Eraserhead.

Bosensky Plackopes

ISBN 80-86661-24-5
Mot, 2009, 112 pages, b/w, format 22 cm x 16,5 cm

A unique collaboration between Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson resulted in this graphic novel-length piece of surreal comics journalism, erasing and re-drawing the borders between dream and reality to form a tale both sincere and fantastic. Each of them contributed to every single drawing to the extent that they no longer can tell just who did what. This has led to the emergence of an independent artistic entity, one who is neither of the two, but something else, unknown yet strangely familiar and perhaps a tiny bit scary. The story is based on true events.

This edition uses the format of the re-designed and expanded U.S. version, which includes artwork not seen in previous european editions.
It also contains an extensive illustrated glossary, a preface by Stefan Skledar and a real, folding map of Ex-Yugoslavia and Sarajevo like you never saw them before (and never will again)!

"This is a damned compelling book if you want a read that will wake you up and not lull you to sleep."
Win Wiaciek, Now Read This!
