Something slow for the end of the year. At least compared to what you are used to see from me usually. The images at the beginning of this intro were taken from some of the older comic books from the most popular (among the few) comic series in the former East Germany called "Mosaik". The first Mosaik was published in 1959 and it is still published today... with different characters than the ones with who it started, the "Digedags", Dig, Dag and Diggedag, a creation by Hannes Hegen. He already died in 1975, which led to the introduction of 3 new main heroes to the series, the "Abrafaxe", Abrax, Babrax and Califax in January 1976.
I started collecting the "Mosaik" comic books since 1982 (since I was second grade and able to read them). My collection is almost complete. I only miss a few of the one from 1960 and the first one. I did not collect them as an investment or valuable and because of that, I did to them what no "REAL" collector who is interested in keeping the monetary value of the comic books up... I and my parents spent hundreds of dollars to have them made into books, by a old-skool book-binder.. using fine linnen etc. High quality, well preserving the stories, but destroying almost entirely the collectors value of it. I have almost 600 of the comic books, which were published monthly since 1961-today. They are still in Germany with my parents though, but we planned to get them shipped to me to California sometime in 2010.
They already made a movie for the Big-Screen with the "Abrafaxe" characters in 2001 (following the examples of Marvel and DC Comics), titled "Die Abrafaxe - Unter Schwarzer Flagge" (English release title: "The Pirates of Tortuga: Under the Black Flag"). There was no movie done yet for the "Digedags", but some fans created a "short film" in 1995 as a test. Maybe somebody will finance the creation of a full-length movie one day.
Somebody scanned all the Digegags books and the Abrafaxe episodes between 1976 and 2007 and put them on Usenet, where I downloaded them. It's good to have and saves me the work to do the same again :).
On a technical note: This is my first multi-parts OSDM intro ever. This is the result of me shifting the direction of my intros from the old and cumbersome "Regie" sliders system to OSDM script. I only use the "Regie" page to set the rendering order of the individual effects (the configuration of which effect gets rendered over or behind which, the stacking or layer order). After this multi-parts intro two more folled shortly after, "Starfall" and "Balls" before I started to create full multi-parts demos with OSDM, like "Oldskool", "Skull and Bones", "Smoke and Mirrors" or "Scheissfreundlich".
