9780486808406: Fires & Murmur (Dover Graphic Novels)

"Displays the artistry of European comics at their very best." ― Publishers Weekly.
Created by Eisner Award-winning artist Lorenzo Mattotti, Fires sweeps readers off into a hypnotic, haunting fantasy centered on a mysterious island where the hills are constantly ablaze. A series of vessels have inexplicably disappeared from the vicinity, so the battleship Anselm II is dispatched to investigate. When the expedition's leader, Lieutenant Absinthe, comes ashore, his encounter with the burning island's bizarre residents results in a form of psychic possession that leads to mayhem, madness, and murder. Mattotti's vivid illustrations, rendered with the depth and richness of paintings, propel the eye through a brooding, brilliantly colored atmosphere of mesmerizing imagery.
A second tale by Mattotti, co-written with Jerry Kramsky, offers another fantastic voyage. Murmur traces an amnesiac's quest across phantasmagoric landscapes to recover his identity — an enigmatic journey in which fear and confusion are resolved by arcane magic rituals.
This handsome hardcover edition marks the first publication of Fires and Murmur in a single volume. Both stories were originally published in French; this Dover edition features the 1988 English translation of Feux (Fires) and the 1993 English translation of Murmure (Murmur).
Suggested for mature readers.

About the Author:

Italian artist Lorenzo Mattotti is recognized as an outstanding exponent of comic book art whose illustrations are featured in prominent magazines and whose books appear in translation around the world. In 2003 he received an Eisner Award for his graphic novel Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde; his books for children include Eugenio, the 1993 winner of the Grand Prix of Bratislava.Mattotti's works have been featured in many solo exhibitions, including anthological expositions at Rome's Palazzo delle Esposizioni, the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem, and the Musei di Porta Romana in Milan. He has created promotional material, covers, and advertising campaigns, including posters for the 2000 Cannes Film Festival. A collaboration with musician Lou Reed yielded the book The Raven, and he created segments linking the three episodes of Eros, a film by Wong Kar-wai, Steven Soderbergh, and Michelangelo Antonioni. His recent publications include Vietnam for the Travel Book series by Louis Vuitton.
