Iztok Sitar: Under the Red Star
Iztok Sitar aka Ninel (this is an anagram, which can be read backwards) is among the most significant comic book artists in Slovenia. His body of work is extensive, and most series or cycles have been published in books. He has also published in many national and foreign magazines and newspapers.
The catalogue includes a selection of eight books that embody Sitar’s personal and visually and verbally expressive maturity, which he has worked for persistently, thoroughly and patiently since his artistic beginnings: Sperm and Blood (1990), The Woman Who Makes Love to a Cat(1998), Black Men, White Bones (1999), 4000 (2001), The Story of God (2004), Heads (2006), The Diary of Anne Tank (2008) and Freaks Love Differently (2014).
