Dylan Dog 394 – The Eternal Seasons | Review
In short, my lady, the seasons come and go, sometimes slowly, sometimes too fast... but not so quickly as those London is undergoing in the last numbers of Dylan Dog. Winter is coming, it is just a few hours of difference from the summer: the body does not get used to it, passes from one season to another while walking along the road to return home.
But the seasons unpacked not disturb people only: to find a simple fresh mozzarella has become a “mission impossible”, that pushes you to do what rationally would you not do ever, how to steal or give precedence to your instinct over reason. And also Dylan we fall into, in trying to fast-forward his life as much as possible. Our hero, red-black, helped by the almost ubiquitous Groucho, will start to look around what happens during the winter, due to a curfew imposed by Scotland Yard. The police in london, in fact, there were many complaints of disappearances of citizens in the snow, so that's just going to get in the winter, everyone is running in their homes to avoid the thick white blanket transports them to an unknown the most terrifying of the hell. A woman knocks at the door of the investigator's (or better, you passed out in front of it) while searching for his daughter, gone in the Winter: now it's up to Dylan to try to survive head-on to the seasons, finding himself in front of the eternal dualism of life, between the love and the madness that ensues.
The women and their stories, told by the Man, are very romantic and impossible, in spite of the efforts to reconcile the differences of “style of life”. As in a modern Ladyhawke preapocalittico, Dylan and his beloved Annabeth to live in two spaces of the day, the night and the day are summer and winter, the words of love turn into moans of madness and reason gives way to madness. The development of micro-worlds governed by the seasons: the beauty of spring following the anger and nervousness, typical of the hot summer, and then fall into a vortex of sadness in autumn, which leads to a Winter without sun and without escape. With artwork by Marco Nizzoli, the suffering of separation, and romance are amplified greatly by voting down a tear of sad towards the end of the nightmare. The skill of the designer is most noticeable in the expressions of the faces, giving an extra layer to the narrative of the Barbato, taking us to the tragedy towards the end of the register.
But it is not only in the history of Man that we should be surprised and surprise: the red thread that ties all of the stories of the Meteor you are about to unravel very quickly, putting in an alliance between Groucho and an enemy of Dylan, already in the subodorava something in the previous issues. The third brother of the Marx proves to be more the protagonist that the first focusing out-of-character that from the title to the head.
The cover of the stainless Cavenago melts the hearts of the readers as a point of warmth in the middle of the frost of the feelings of the londoners, following the tragedy that is incombendo like the sword of Damocles. Peaceful, servants of the Queen: six numbers will be all finished.
