 BALLAD OF THE BROKEN HEART 

STORY BY  Stefano cardoselli- Andrea Amenta

ARTWORK BY Stefano Cardoselli

COLORS BY Tommaso Devito

TRANSLATION / EDIT BY Daniele Bonfanti

ARMAGEDOOM FACTORY (c)

We are just numbers among other numbers. Numbers, only numbers, but some of them count so much more.  

The age – the where and when – does not matter. In a near future, the toughest challenge to face will be overpopulation.  

Birth control will be a civic duty but individual will alone won’t be enough…

Aimless wars will become serial entertainment; controlled deaths, a millionaire lottery.  

Branded like beasts, drawn like bingo balls for death – a win for your family. All the rotten, the evil, the worst, will be marketed and sponsored as fair, decent and good.

In a near future, society will have different ethics, a different perception of good and evil – of love and hatred. 

 Only few men will be born with unalterable, natural morals; because nobody will ever change the value of love for somebody who’s truly in love. 

 In a scenario of absurd tomorrow, a brave soldier, finally back home, will discover the truth about his gone love. 

 A mute warrior, a vow of silence, a merciless revenge put in meaningless prose. 

              … Screams of silence 

                       cries of tears 

                   my heart is there 

                     dancing split. 

                 Screams of silence 

                the voice of torn love 

                a black heart remains 

                in the rumble of pain…
