Steno non vuole smettere di sognare, Per qualche motibo in un mondo in cui nessuno fa in tempo a provare un bisogno che già viene soddisfatto dal sistema, Steno sente che dei suoi sogni avrà bisogno, prima o poi. Nemmeno immagina quanto ne abbia bisogno il mondo intero, della sua capacità di sognare.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This has not influenced my review in any way.
Golem is a standalone comic book/graphic novel set in futuristic Italy. I didn’t know this, but I was pleasantly surprised when I realised it was a singular piece of work.
In this piece Ceccotti combines wonderful artwork, great storytelling, excellent characterisation and just some all round screwed up villains. As a result, Golem is a deep and dark read, yet suitable for all audiences. Ceccotti explores the woes of capitalism and the hail corporate nature of modern society (pretty accurately depicting how we might be in 14 years from now). The part I found especially creepy were the buttons you press to re-order anything in your house – a service Amazon has recently launched.
Golem was a pleasure to read, and the first comic book in a long time that I absolutely devoured with no second thoughts.
