Leutenant Dilber


Leutenant Dilber

= History =

In early 1990s, thanks to his collaboration with a French publishing house Les Humanoïdes Associés, artist Boris Dragojevic launched into the world of comic book; the collaboration ended up after the outbreak of the war in 1991. For the first time in Belgrade, we saw extracts from the first unfinished series of an alternative comic book [http://www.borisdragojevic.net/Strip/cartoon.html »Leutenant-sailor Dilber«] .

That avantgarde comic book is imbued with humour and vision, conjuring up the legacy of pop-art and, in a rather satirical manner, predicting the future events in ex-Yugoslavia. Although it has never been published, this comic book remains a rare and most precious artistic achievement of the murky years of last decade.

Story

""'Let’s see the introduction and remember Babylon"

"It’s 22nd century. The Earth was rapidly changing its shape; the snow was melting in the poles. After the modern Balkan wars and battles for territories, a new human species was born. People got free from prejudices and morals. Their life motto was »All for one, everyone for himself«. There was plenty of water, but it was polluted as everything else. With sulphur evaporating, the temperature of the soil was constant, between 30-42oC, a metar above the ground. There were occasional storms, but only one season – suspended autumn. The war-dogs survived the radiation, but found themselves impotent to organize a new life.

"North from Dubrovnik, the organized gangs »Croatia Records« were ravaging, and south from Bar, the pirates »Muslims« rytam selection was plundering all around. The quick patrole ships were the only that two sides in war had in common »The people will gild it all«, was the frequent saying of those who did not know what tomorrow would bring. That was the time of Leutenant-sailor Dilber, the last surviver from the helicopter »Nova Varos« .""'
