Ms. Bunjevac is a talented cartoonist and illustrator of Yugoslavian heritage currently living and working in Toronto, Ontario. Heartless collects a hundred page chunk of her comics along with a dozen or so illustrations. Her work is finely crafted, highly detailed and skillfully designed; the drawing is carefully stippled and heavy on black tones; the content is both sexual and surreal, often both at once! Comics pros like Kim Deitch and Jay Lynch, as well as top UK critic, Paul Gravett all sing her praises. Get a better idea of what we're talking about by taking a trip over to her website and scoping out some of her work.
Nina Bunjevac pulls out the stops in her first graphic novel for Fantagraphics. Bezimena is an oversize hardcover volume printed in a stark and dark black and white that contains the finest work of Bunjevac's career (thus far). Page after page of striking visuals take readers through a labyrinth of memory and imagination to share a tale of sexual repression and abuse that is by turns haunting, lurid and surreal.
