Description

Entirely in Italian: introduction and stories. Six superbly drawn adventures of noble, sympathetic native Americans, as well as their clashes with the U.S. cavalry. In the last story, with his astonishing drawings, Serpieri takes us to the battlefield of Little Big Horn, the most famous armed clash between a combined force of Lakota, Cheyenne, and Arapaho against the 7th Cavalry of the US army. Also: (translated) The Crow’s Nest, Defeat, Tashunka Witko as the Indians Called Him, Day of the Grasshoppers, and A Warrior I’ve Been.

From Serpieri’s sexy Druuna to this is certainly a leap, but he has done historical-oriented work at times in Druuna’s travels through time as well. Since we cannot translate this, I can only observe that it looks to be very accurate regarding costumes, Indian customs, settings and realism in the conflict. I would expect it to be historically accurate, painting stories that recognize the nobility and bravery of the native Americans, and as sympathetic as can be with the unfortunate U.S. forces carrying out misguided and brutal suppression.

Handsome large, square format. I think this is going to be very good, and probably accurate in its historical detail. I dearly wish we had a translation of this; we could quickly do the titles, but beyond that I don’t know how to easily translate this into English. The art alone is worth the price and you can certainly follow the story fairly well.

Note: Like the Druuna books, which come from this same Italian publisher, we expect we will have difficulty getting more copies of this. We brought in as many as possible in a first pass, since it could be our last chance, too. Reordering any books from Lo Scarabeo is problematic because we depend on a U.S. distributor for our supply. These copies have minor bumps.
