Poised between reality and fantasy, Memorabilia is acclaimed cartoonist Sergio Ponchione’s wildly original homage to the legendary comic book creators who captured his imagination as a child. Weaving history, speculative fiction, and pure fantasy, Ponchione has crafted a visually stunning love letter befitting such towering comic book legends.

"Ponchionne’s line is thick and rubbery, influenced in equal parts by classic cartooning of the 1920s and the American underground and alternative traditions. There are echoes of R. Crumb, Elzie Segar, Charles Burns, and Kim Deitch in his work, creating a lush, bizarre world." — Rob Clough
