- Full Description
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 tale of a veteran artist introducing a younger creator to the inspirations of his life, the towering comic book legends. We get snippets of each one’s works and career and greatest artwork, all recreated by this Italian creator!
Includes full-page prose biographies of all five creators. Ponchione is an outstanding and sensitive artist, and I found myself reliving my own early love and wild enthusiasm for each of these amazing creators, whose work has obviously influenced creators the world over. A very fun little book.
"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
