was a Croatian political
weekly magazine. Based in Split
, it first started as a political satire
supplement in Nedjeljna Dalmacija
(the Sunday edition of the Slobodna Dalmacija
daily newspaper) before evolving into an independent satirical weekly paper in 1993. In the 2000s it turned into into a popular political weekly before it finally ceased publication in June 2008.
The magazine, whose name was a play on Herald Tribune
(see below), and which billed itself as a "weekly magazine for Croatian anarchists
", commonly included a provocative satirical photomontage
on the cover page, a short news section (titled "Informbiro
"), editorials, interviews, a satirical section (titled "Feral Tromblon"), and sections on music, books and the Internet.
Another popular section, titled "Greatest Shits", included a collection of ludicrous statements made in the Croatian media by politicians and other public figures in the previous week. The magazine typically had between 50 and 100 pages in total. It was originally printed in black and white, later changed to full color glossy paper
, but then reverted to black and white. In 1994 Feral Tribune
also launched a book publishing department which published a series of works by renowned contemporary authors and intellectuals from ex-Yugoslav countries, such as Arsen Dedić
, Slavenka Drakulić
, Milan Kangrga
