“From the Asylum” Reaches the Croat Market

“From the Asylum,” a two-pager about my mania for lists and statistics, will be translated into Croatian for a comics festival in Zagreb. The annual festival is called Crtani romani sou (“Funny Comics Show” — and no, it has nothing to do with comics actually being funny or not). Dark Horse scribe Darko Macan kindly asked permission to translate the piece and I was thrilled to say yes. As far as I know, this is the first translation of any of my work, but ironically this is the second ex-Yugoslavian country to print “From the Asylum.” The story originally appeared in Stripburger’s Madburger anthology, published out of Slovenia in 2002. Obviously, the piece speaks to the Balkan soul. Check out “From the Asylum” here.
