About

Thirteen authors, twelve stories about Blues: an organ never granted by Nature for the disposal of suffering. Different hands touching the same string, many eyes being dazzled by the same sun, different pains sweating in a single skin, made of paper and told in a paperback book of 152 pages. 


         We will tell you stories of escape, stories about slums and infamous places, stories on the border between dreams inhabited by musicians, dogs, guitars and a reality made of inner monsters, depression, despair. We will tell you stories of love and eroticism. Stories about silence and noise. Stories of sacred and earthly things.


         If you have ever experienced a painful love or taken the wrong path... if life has left you at least once with your ass on the ground, this comic strip also speaks of you.


         Surrender to the lines and colors of twelve stories that will rock you on the desperate and sensual notes of all the blues songs that inspired them. You will be able to listen to those songs thanks to a Spotify playlist we created and that you will find right at the beginning of the book, under the form of a QR code.


         We reach out to you and invite you to be the fifteenth member of the group, supporting the project to see it grow: this blues song is waiting only for you to be written.

...

Tredici autori, dodici storie che raccontano il Blues, organo mai concesso dalla Natura, per smaltire la sofferenza. Mani diverse che toccano la stessa corda, occhi abbagliati dallo stesso sole, dolori diversi che sudano in una pelle sola, fatta di carta e raccontata in un albo brossurato da 152 pagine. 

Vi racconteremo storie di fuga, storie di bassifondi e locali malfamati, storie al confine tra sogni abitati da musicisti, cani, chitarre e una realtà fatta di mostri interiori, depressione, disperazione. Storie di amore ed erotismo. Storie di silenzio e rumore. Storie di cose sacre e terrene.

Se avete vissuto un amore doloroso, se avete intrapreso strade sbagliate, se la vita vi ha lasciato almeno una volta con il culo per terra, questo fumetto parla anche di voi.

E allora abbandonatevi alle linee e ai colori di dodici storie che sapranno cullarvi sulle note disperate e sensuali delle canzoni blues che ne hanno ispirato il racconto, e che potrete ascoltare dalla playlist di Spotify che troverete all'inizio dell'albo (sottoforma di QR!).

Vi tendiamo la mano e vi invitiamo ad essere il quindicesimo membro del gruppo, supportando il progetto per vederlo crescere: questa canzone blues aspetta solo voi per poter essere scritta.

Risks and challenges

We are just born as an independent group of young artists.
For us is the first attempt as a group and as a Kickstarter project.
But we are determined, passionate and we have already planned a huge promotion tour in Italy and (why not?), abroad.

Siamo appena nati come gruppo indipendente di giovani artisti.
Per noi è la prima esperienza su Kickstarter, ma anche la prima volta assieme come gruppo.
Siamo però molto determinati, spinti da una grande passione per quello che facciamo e abbiamo già programmato un lungo tour di promozione in Italia e, perché no, all'estero.
