Description


Hailed in Europe, Guido Buzzelli has been called "the Michaelangelo of monsters," "the Goya of comics," and "the patron saint of all Italian cartoonists."

A pioneer active from the 1950s-1980s, today virtually unknown in English, Buzzelli horrifies, fascinates, and provokes with his unique blend of surrealism and dynamism. Displaying a range of influences from Westerns and science fiction to Rennaisance art and futurism, Buzzelli's stories are a delightful, quasi-postmodern mishmash of high and low, showing an intricate hand and stylish narrative skill.

The first of three volumes collecting Guido Buzzelli's stories in English for the first time, includes The Labyrinth and Zil Zelub, two of the earliest Italian avant-garde graphic novels ever published. These fantastic and grotesque stories are the perfect introduction to Buzzelli's work.

Translated by Jamie Richards. Introduction by Domingos Isabelinho.
