Zanardi (2017)

In this graphic novel, presented in English for the first time, the Italian “Crumb” portrays a lost generation of late 1970s/early 1980s teenagers coping with family problems, school, sex, and drugs.

Pazienza was a revolutionary cartoonist who ushered an underground sensibility to Italian and European comics, breaking from the more staid tradition of genteel adult (and children’s) graphic albums.

My War (2015)

"In their passionate intensity these drawings are as emotionally poignant as the very best war work that Paul Nash or Nevinson ever produced, while technically the broad lines and heavy blacks of Mr. Szüts have a sledge-hammer mastery which is more akin to the work of Forain and Steinlen." - The Sunday Times (London).
