As the title suggest, he’s a super-hero with a memory loss problem. That’s why he’s called Amnesia. Which is the other name for a memory loss condition. Get it? Get it?
This is a web comic that makes fun of super-hero comics. I’m not parodying a particular character in it, but the scenes from those comics. I believe the super-heroes comics’ genre is nearing the absurdity with all those “main character discovers his/her powers” and “I need to save the world” moments. And the line between absurdity and parody is a thin one.
That’s where Amnesia comes in.
As for who he is as a character… I can’t tell you much and not spoil the origin story.
He’s a super-strong, able-to-fly, big-chinned hero with always-perfectly-combed hair. One day he woke up and discovered he had those superpowers… And then he forgot about it. Then he discovered it tomorrow. And also forgot about it. Basically, all his days start with that discovery. Nobody knows all of his powers. Maybe he has ability of sonic scream? Or x-ray vision too? With his forgetfulness, who can be sure.
I’m a comic author from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I’ve been drawing all sorts of comic from 1990’s and although I usually draw more realistic, non-superhero comics, working on Amnesia is so fun that I decided to give it a go as a web comic.
This comic was originally created in my native language, Bosnian, and it has won an award in a regional comic festival for best screenplay. The translation for web comic form was kindly provided by Emir Pasanovic.

Kid Amnesia is the first comic strip he’s writing without a set finish line, and only because he’s finally found a great artist who’s willing to draw what he writes. You can contact him and find some of his other writing and translation work through his Art Investigations blog.
