Grotesque

Grotesque by Sergio Ponchione

Winner, Gran Guinigi prize for Best Series, 2009 Lucca Comics & Games festival: "Grotesque by Sergio Ponchione is a work that gives the reader an incredible number of suggestions and visual stimuli. At the same time disturbing, metaphysical, surreal, dreamlike, metaphoric, inventive and unabashedly referential, it is perhaps more than anything else a formidable and accomplished tribute to some great comic geniuses of the U.S., from Elzie Crisler Segar to Robert Crumb by way of Daniel Clowes and Charles Burns, but without forgetting the Italian maestro Benito Jacovitti. The prize for this saga is meant to be a recognition of an author who, having started professionally in the area of mass production, chose to explore the endless possibilities that the language grants to comics artists who, just like Ponchione, feel the urge to express his own poetic definition."
