The paper analyses eight comics published in 1990s in Croatia; they make up the whole material the author managed to gather. They can be divided into three thematic groups: superheroes, antiheroes and comics with the message. The aim was to show that comics have their own way of dealing with the topics present in other media as well. Therefore, in this case, we encounter the topics of war, the image of warriors and enemies, but also certain idealisation of the Croatian history, in which the Croats are shown as wiser, wittier and more learned or, in a word, better than the nations they have
had contact with. These topics are the dominant ones. The Croatian war comics will thus remind us of already seen elements that are considered to be "ours" or "local". The elements of pop culture, politics and historical revisionism have been added on top, so
that it is possible to observe and analyse comics as propaganda for the young that also reveal the reflection of the collective imagery of the 1990s in Croatia.
