Pakleni pronalazak (The Hell Invention)

Marijan Ebner was a Croatian lithographer from Osijek, who dedicated most of his life to making comic strips. Between World War I and World War II he was one of the most published authors in the Belgrade magazine Mika Miš. His first comic strip, 'Misterije okeanskih dubina' ('Mysteries of the Ocean Depths') was published in 1936.

He worked for several other magazines, such as Tarcan, Paja Patak and Mali zabavnik. For the latter he created the science-fiction comic 'Pakleni pronalazak' ('Hellish Find'). He is best known for his adventure, detective, science-fiction and travel comics. During World War II he mostly worked as an illustrator, but also created the war themed comic 'Staljingrad', that was later renamed to 'Preko ruske stepe' ('Across the Russian Steppe'). Marijan Ebner disappeared in 1945 because he was against partisans.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
