Dubravko Mataković (born August 20, 1959) is a Croatian illustrator best known for his grotesque comic books.[1][2][3]

Mataković was born in Ivankovo near Vinkovci, and graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, University of Zagreb in 1983. He has published comics since 1984.[4] His work was published in the newspapers Nedjeljna Dalmacija, Jutarnji list, as well as children's newspapers Smib and Modra lasta.

In 2003, Mataković co-founded heavy metal band called Septica, that published an eponymous album Septica for Aquarius Records in 2006.[5][6]

The city theatre in Vinkovci produced a play based on Mataković's strip characters, in which Mataković himself produced the scene, costumes and most of the music.[7]
