    1. Fantastic art--I could stare at these panels all day. The stories, however, are very low-key. Lumpen is a very passive protagonist and while that is refreshing in a way, it doesn't propel you through the stories like a conventional alpha-male protagonist would. I didn't really mind that. It gave the stories a more literary feel than what you get in traditional American comics.

    2. Dieter Lumpen, meni do sada potpuno nepoznat strip, punokrvna je avantura u kojoj pratimo naslovnog junaka po gotovo svim kontinentima uz obilje akcije i humora.

Zentner i Pellejero stvaraju eskapistički svijet u kojem ne manjka nadrealnih elemenata, filozofsk [...]

    3. via NYPL - The art's very nice. The plots tend to have an anti-climatic end that I appreciate. Still, something here isn't resonating for me - the characters don't seem engaged. The stories felt like a more apathetic riff on Corto Maltese.
