KOMIKAZE: Alternative Comics Award Angouleme 2020 / Text by Jury: Editing a comic book fanzine is more like a cross-country race, than a short-distance sprint race. Because it is a work of editorial research, of experimentation. Komikaze is one of the best examples of this with its editor Ivana Armanini who, with determination and a keen artistic sense, selects the content of each issue. This fanzine with annual periodicity offers a very sharp selection of complete stories from several authors of the world alternative scene, little or not known, but who each offer original comics. A regular participant in the Angoulême Fanzine Prize for many years (since 2004!), The jury which decided to award it the 2020 Alternative Comics Award appreciated the regularity of annual publication as well as a keen eye for authors, especially with the discovery of a whole generation of authors from Eastern Europe, much more fruitful than one might think.”

2021. JUTARNJI LIST (one of the leading Croatian newspapers) / PATRICIA KIŠ: “Komikaze #19 – Comic reports of the impossible everyday life

“Croatia’s biggest cultural success of early 2020 came from an unlikely quarter, with the Zagreb-based alternative comic-strip magazine Komikaze picking up the best alternative comic award at the prestigious Angouleme Festival, the graphic-storyteller’s equivalent of the Hollywood Oscars. The award is a well-deserved tribute to the indefatigable efforts of Komikaze’s long-serving editor Ivana Armanini, who founded the magazine in 2002 and has heroically kept it going ever since, despite vertiginous ups and downs in its search for funding and revenue. Featuring 20-30 short strip-cartoons by different authors in each issue, Komikaze functions as an essential platform for emerging talent from Croatia and the wider region. Featuring work that is abrasive, challenging and punkish alongside graphics of rare lyricism and beauty, the magazine provides an essential glimpse into a local illustration scene that has always packed a lot of surprises.” JONATHAN BOUSFIELD

2015. ŽELJEZNIČAR/ JURICA STAREŠINČIĆ: “O stanju u hrvatskome stripu Jurica je rekao: U svijetu postoje prave oaze stripa (Japan, Francuska, Belgija), zemlje u kojima je strip napola cijenjen a napola prezren kao eksploatacijski medij (SAD, Italija) te poneka zemlja u kojoj strip gotovo ne postoji izvan najužeg geto-okvira (Rusija). U Hrvatskoj je paradoks još dublji. S jedne strane postoje »Komikaze« i »Strip revija« koji odrađuju velik i veličanstven posao za domaću scenu, a s druge se objavljuje krema svjetske produkcije u luksuznim izdanjima vrhunske kvalitete, ali u minornim nakladama i po cijenama potpuno neprilagođenima platežnoj moći ljudi.”
