  • Comics as a medium of visual narration and mass communication, has modelled its language and syntax over time, asserting itself as an autochthonous, mature and multi-layered form of artistic expression. Very few comics, however, so overwhelmingly permeated all of the pores of the pop culture of a society as was the case of ALAN FORD. Generations enjoyed reading this caricature black and white strip, recognisable for its extraordinary dark humour, social and political, historic and every other type of satire, everyday irony and sarcasm, perfected by its authors – illustrator Magnus (Roberto Raviola) and the script writer Max Bunker (Luciano Secchi).

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the publication of the first edition of Alan Ford in Italy, we have organised a Serbian exhibition, with its premiere at the Students’ City Cultural Centre in Belgrade, and now in Čačak, at the Animanima festival. The exhibition includes scanned pages with panels from the comic which illustrate the reasons for the popularity of Alan Ford in Ex-Yugoslavia, from the very first edition until the present. The exhibition shows the typical dialogues and gags which have become part of everyday parlance, universal and shrewd thoughts and human characters, through an ironic relationship towards the social system, clad in surrealistic style, humour and malicious commentary of the reality of the western society. A curiosity of the exhibition will be the display of the first episode in all the editions from different countries around the world, as well as a premiere show of Magnus’s drawings depicting Number One’s secret hideout and the layout of the Florist Shop on the Sixth Avenue in New York.
