Igort (au) (il). In this moody, duotone graphic novel Igort, alias Igor Tuveri, breathes an unexpected beauty into the gritty mafiosi genre, importing subtleties from Japanese cinema & manga. Graphically beautiful -- each panel is a well-observed moment frozen in time. Igort focuses the eye of a master craftsman & sensitive artist on his subjects. He is one of Italy’s great cartoonists, & this is his most ambitious work yet -- where the melancholy dreams of Mafiosi become nightmares. A hitman lies dying in the gray & narrow streets of Naples, a new revolver by his side. Nino’s father gave him that gun for his birthday. It never fired a shot. This mysterious & cinematic book brings Italian magic realism to graphic novels in a story about heroes, families, & faith.
