Two days ago I received this book by Serbian author Zdravko Zupan which I consider fascinating, although it will probably interest just a handful of you. This history of Serbian comics contains a summary in English at the end.

More importantly it includes quite a few illustrations linked to pre-WWII Disney history in Serbia, including this cover of the Jumbo magazine which features our good friend Elmer the Elephant. I did not know about this magazine when I wrote my long series of articles about Serbian Disney publications for Tomart's Disneyana Update a while back. The whole series of articles was written with the help of Zdravko Zupan, by the way, which closes the circle.
