Tito on ice

To promote their book Bosnian Flat Dog, Swedish comics artists Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson tour the countries of former Yugoslavia with a mummyfied Marshal Tito in a refrigerator.
Watching border controls turn into improvised snapshot sessions, admiring mutant iron-curtain Disney toys, buying souvenir grenade shell handicrafts and discovering sniper art in blown-out apartments, they find that truth may indeed be stranger than fiction.
A roller coaster ride through a parallel universe where all borders are disintegrating – at the same time tragic, poetic and bleakly funny.
