2010-04-16 11:56:14 Soda_2 Notes German publisher founded in the 80ties after publishing a comics magazine by the name Splitter (published by Jürgens Comicshop) the publisher was famous for publishing a lot of French-Belgian comics as well as several Marvel titles (Elektra: Assassin; Genghis Grimtoad; Light and Darkness War; The 'Nam) and original German comics. However, most titles were canceled pretty fast.
Founder was Hans-Jürgen Janetzki, who also has a comicshop in the area of Munich.
In 1996 he aquired the licences for publishing most of the Image comics at the time (sans "Spawn" which went to Infinity). These were famous for their very poor printing quality the original issues were scanned rather than to obtain the data from the publisher) as well as their sometimes awful translation (especially in later issues).
The publisher shut down in 1999 after several problems (Legend has it that Marc Silvestri took the Top Cow licence from him which was the last nail in the coffin).
In 2006 Splitter was re-activated, although not by Janetzki but Dirk Schultz, Horst Gotta and Tanja Krämling, whoh used to worked for Splitter before. Right now they are publishing a successful portfolio of high-qualitiy French-Belgian titles again.

In 1996 he acquired the licenses for publishing most of the Image comics at the time (sans "Spawn" which went to Infinity, another now-defunct publisher). These were famous for their very poor reproduction quality (the original issues were scanned instead of obtaining the data files from the publisher) as well as their sometimes awful translations (especially in later issues).
The publisher shut down in 1999 after several problems (Legend has it that Marc Silvestri took the Top Cow license from him which was the final nail in the coffin).
In 2006 Splitter was re-activated, although not by Janetzki but Dirk Schultz, Horst Gotta and Tanja Krämling, who used to work for Splitter before (as artists and letterer). Right now they are publishing a very successful portfolio of high-quality French-Belgian titles again.
