Fucking NICE! I love this kind of visceral, pulp art. It's pure, undiluted punk.


What I shown is the art I personally like, however, there are also plain cartoonish strips as well.
Frankly, the styles were so varied that I have problem with proper representation

Another examples I had previously prepared

Cover art for issue #11, presenting the aforementioned Wilq (parody of superheroes)

And cover art for issue #10

There is much much more coming, but I'm still thinking what to show.

This is awesome! I hate to sound demanding, but I would love to see more! I love looking at all the varied styles and artistic genres.

All in right time. Frankly, I am happy that someone gives a shit.
I was thinking about why it doesn't have a scanlation, maybe someday, someone will do some...

So far is what I had ready to show.
Next stuff either during weekend or next week.
I wouldn't mind if other posters had showcased some comics / mags as well, given that a
lot of users are from various european countries, so it could be interesting

More stuff from "the Productives" (as the crew called themselves)
With subsequent issues both the quantity as well as quality increased.

Jeż Jerzy (George the Hedgehog)

This is a little funny story, as this strip started in magazine for kids.
The stories were slightly educative, cutesy and very simple.
The stories were told in one page, as the strip was featured on the last page of the mag.
Example

(I think you can guess from the pictures what the plot was about)

For some reasons, the creators later started a more adult-oriented version

Color

It got popular enough to be published by Egmont Polska and had few volumes released with all-new full-length stories, with sometimes few-page shorts

This page is an example of another well-known character that was both
featured in Produkt as well as had its own volumes published.

The author is known for strong anarchic ideology, radical greenpeace
and overall being extremely critical of society and reality.

The character was practically a Punisher type, fighting for ecology.
Very preachy, but a still satirical comic. It almost feels like reading Ennis.

I was never a fan of this creation, as I consider it idiotic and over-the-top in the wrong way, but nonetheless I present it out of curiosity.

The dude also had other strip Reporter Szwędak "Reporter Nosy" (funnily enough the nose was drawn huge)
that also served as a commentary of reality, albeit much more mild.

This pages are from the strip "Josephine" by Clarence Weatherspoon.
I don't know if it was his/her name, or only a nick, but nonetheless,
the art was jaw-breaking.

It had this slight Mignola-esque edge, but still unique
I don't know what happened with the artist, but probably the most talented one.

And the last batch of examples for now

This page was from comic book strip that served as a promotion of an album by
the band Sweet Noise, called "Czas Ludzi Cienia" (The Age of Shadow People)
by the same artist that did Emilia, Tank and Professor strip

I will present now something I wasn't even aware of.
Polish superhero that reminds me of Captain Britain
Biały Orzeł (White Eagle)

The first issue was published in 2011...
The comic book seems to be in vein of 90s Image/Marvel.

The story goes that main character, who is a rich playboy,
was in coma due to an accident, where he was thrown out of 15th floor
He survived, but was paralyzed obviously. His dad being a scientist,
has created a serum that gave him some superduperpowers.
He has to take the serum daily, otherwise he becomes cripple again.
The main villain is TechCorp.

The main hero is a mix of Cap America and Batman.
The comic is rather criticized for being too marvel-like (in Poland DC, manga
and indies dominate the rather small comic book market, Marvel is well-known, but is not popular)
and was criticized simply for being a superhero comic.

I haven't read it yet, and I've found out about it by accident.
But I definitely need to get this, that's fo sho

The art.
