Giuseppe Bergman is still looking for adventure in all the wrong places: from Africa to the Aegean, Manara’s signature character stars in a film with a vanished director; re-creates the legendary voyage of Ulysses; and babysits a woman whose urge to re-enact classic paintings lands her in Dante’s Hell!
Manara’s artwork and satirical voice are both in top form, and these stories, spanning two decades, are among his funniest, sexiest, and most beautiful! Collects the classic An Author in Search of Six Characters and Dies Irae, along with Bergman’s Odyssey and The Urban Adventures. 2012 Eisner and Harvey Award Winner for Best U.S. Edition of International Material! This volume features an introduction by Paul Pope (THB, Batman: Year 100, Wednesday Comics).
“Manara is a comics artist of uncommon ability, a master of linework and layout, whose storytelling chops deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as those of Kirby, Crumb, Toth, Moebius, or anyone else you’d put in that same grouping.” -ComicsAlliance
