Prije pet minuta, pročitala je svoj primjerak albuma s posvetom. Iskustvo koje se pamti!
Five minutes ago, she finished reading her copy of the book with special dedication, for the first time! An experience she'll never forget!

Cijena? Pih sitnica, samo 75 kn (+ troškovi slanja)
Hammerson misli na vas... uzvratite mu ljubav i naručite bar 2 primjerka odjednom. On će osobno potpisati vašu knjigu, a možda dodati i par crteža ukoliko ga lijepo zamolite. Zamislite koliku će vrijednost potpisani primjerak dostići za 20 godina!
What's the price, dude? See the special note below.
Hammerson loves you... give back some love to him and order at least two copies. He'll sign your book, and if you kindly ask, maybe add some exclusive drawings. Just think for what price you can sell it on the e-Bay in 20 years.

An explanation for English speaking visitors wondering what the hell was all this about... It's just a simple commercial for my own comic book anthology, a self-published collection of greatest hits (and some misses) from the last seven years. It contains 92 pages of comics, mostly short stories ranging from one to eleven pages. A pretty good and enjoyable reading. However, it is in Croatian, but half of these comics have no dialogue anyway.
Sadly, this God-forsaken land is not fully supported by Paypal (I can't receive money that way), so I don't know how to handle the foreign orders at the moment. Still, if you're very interested to get this book, contact me and we can perhaps arrange something.
