Cryptic City


Edizione americana in uscita questo mese per Fantagraphics
Qui trovate un breve video di presentazione.

"A long time ago, a devious late-night pact altered the destiny of small community, its inhabitants forever cursed to live as mere clay in the hands of the capricious Mister O’Blique and the wicked Barons. But is change finally afoot? Professor Hackensack journeys to the town in order to wrest from the Barons the secret of their power. He will be helped (or hindered) on this quest by Inspector Doppiofaccio, Lady Puzzle, the Encephapolyp, the Taxmen and other players in the complex, not always human mosaic that forms the strange and twisted architecture of the Cryptic City. Another surreal masterpiece from Sergio Ponchione!"

"Quite a wild ride." – Sequart

"Beautifully drawn light Lynchian fantasy... it's a fun set of vignettes, with a few really clever, moody set pieces." – Dick Hyacinth

"Sergio Ponchione’s trippy take on time and memory [is] well worth your while." – Newsarama
