The Greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus is woven into this contemporary, psychologically complex graphic novel — for the first time in English!
Fausto, a young architect, is a prisoner of his own obsession: the search for perfection. Only the love of Silvia, his girlfriend, can save him. To help him, she goes to a strange doctor, who will guide her on a journey between reality and myth... This is an early work of the internationally acclaimed cartoonist, rendered in a striking red and black two-color palette.
“Fior weaves myth and modernity together to examine the destructive extremes of artists in this vibrant tale.” — Publishers Weekly
“It's a pleasure to find an artist-writer who regards the art of his images to be equal to the narrative they convey. Much of the novel's power is at the level of the brushstroke and the energy it conveys about the story world.” — PopMatters
“[Red Ultramarine features] strong expressive cartooning and a daring use of color.” — Broken Frontier
