You can leaf through the gallery to see images from Le Storie albums in 2014.The first cry of 2014 already look like a running train whistle for Le Storie, that are ready to present you with another twelve months’ worth of Adventures, thrills and limitless fantasies.

This year, the début is with a dark romantic tale by Alessandro Bilotta & Matteo Mosca – well-known and loved authors – that will take us back to the Cold War years, in Berlino, for a riveting love story, strictly entwined with the shadows and traps of a well-constructed spy-story.
Then it’s time for Gigi Simeoni to take our hand and go with us from the recent past to a (hopefully) faraway future, in the post-disaster and neo-medieval lands of his Ossidancy Era. That’s the name of the terrible disease that struck the surviving humanity. The people are getting ready – and you’ll find out why in due time – to fight a new, bloody war…
Talking about wars, the trusted Luigi Mignacco (this time joined by artist Paolo Raffaelli) will take a look on World War II, a crucible of endless human tragedies that has always been supplying material for the Adventure Factory. This time, Mignacco chose a personal rewriting of the literary classic "The duel" – by Joseph Conrad – to tell us about a boxing match that goes on in all the battlefields of the world, between two sworn enemies.

Then – a choice dictated by a knack for variation and surprise – we will be thrown into a “steampunk” scenery, out of the best sci-fi and mystery books! The plot conceived by Giovanni Di Gregorio, with art by Alessia Fattore & Maurizio Di Vincenzo, mixes these two elements: a chess match between a human player and a “steam” computer – set in Victorian London – will the unexpected plan for a string of murders……
hat’s enough for now, but we can also disclose that psychological thrillers, war adventures, neo-gothic horror tales, gangster-stories, Medieval legends and even baffling “zombie Apocalypses”, are already in store for you, in the whirlwind of narrative inventions that our authors prepared for a very special 2014.
“Special” is also the keyword for Le Storie next summer…but that’s something we will talk about in due time. Now we wish you a happy new year and a good read!
