“Glimpses of Comfort” is a compilation of short stories by Kostja and Ella. They are “about obsessions, freedom and romance”, as they define them. The stories are drawn with clear lines and provide a unique view of the world around us. This view is a bit peculiar, but still poetic and full of empathy for life and other human beings. – Modesty Comics (UK) http://www.modestycomics.com

“…this comic book does not, as it might seem, glorify the autistic sensibility or the ultimate adequacy of the cognitive interiority, but it offers a critique of the dominant forms of emancipation in modern liberal democracy.” – Excerpt from afterword by Šefik Tatlić

“Haunting tales from the depths of the foggy Sarajevo underground. Lonely bottle collectors, noiselife, winther, weltschmerz and strangely familiar weirdness.” – Andreas Brandal, Stripnjak editor
