City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Za-Gor Te-Nay - The Spirit With the Hatchet

This graffiti is on the shopping canter above the entrance of the second hand comic shop.

Comics are very popular in B&H but peculiar thing is that the most popular are the Italian ones and a lot of them have wild west and cowboy themes.
The number one comic hero is Zagor, he lives in Darkwood, he was raised by Indians and his side kick is Mexican called Cico Ramirez Martinez… the two of them together fight evil to make the wild west better place to live in. He is the one in the middle in a red tee-shirt.

My favourite of all times is hilariously funny Alan Ford. Also the good ones are Art Spiegelman’s Maus, Asterix, Tex Willer, Commandant Mark and wolfs from Ontario… Batman, Superman... list is endless ‘cause I like comic books.

Do you love comics, what is your favourite?

Have a nice weekend.

Jazzy, I'm not a comic fan but I just notice that somebody also sprayed "strip shop", wishful thinking or maybe they really hope there's one :-)

Of course we had Asterix, but I'm not a big comics fan. It does seem to be an international phenomena though. Excellent photo.

Great photo! I don't really comics much anymore. But I do occasionally enjoy Garfied and have enjoyed in the past a religious comic called Pontius Puddle.

Hi Jazzy,

Very cool.

My fav comic was Sandman by Neil Gamain and Dave McKean. They went on to do amazing things in movies and books... Check out Mirror Mask by Dave McKean for a visual feast...

By the way - comic strip / strip shop maybe?

That's a very cleaver marketing thing, I say.
