Killer Show by Emanuele Loved and Ludovica Ceregatti | Review
There have been many in the comics to treat of the psychological aspects of the “bad guys” of the story, that they were a serial killer or not. But who really wanted to investigate on the psychology (and psyche) to the public? Emanuele Amato has finally dissected in a Killer Show, published by Shockdom, thought the depths of public opinion, without removing the aspect of voyeuristic and the excitement of the sadistic in the live aspects of gore and trash in real life. The story leaves little room for the casus belli of the narrative, or the murder of a young girl in a suburb of the city of Granzano Waves, just because it is not the tragic fact in itself to analyse, but all the bread around it. Only a fleeting glimpse of the murder and then he slides directly into a stream of journalists, onlookers, families, protesters and tv programs that try to steal as many details as possible to resolve the largest of the puzzles, the satisfaction of his own curiosity.
Ersilia is a young girl passionate about volleyball and girlfriend with his beloved Matthew, unemployed, always in the search of an accommodation at work. During an evening spent in intimacy with her boyfriend, Ersilia is brutally attacked and killed by someone. Part of the investigation by the police and scientific, while the press and the tv trying to get details succulent from the boyfriend, who in the meantime is in a state of shock.
Like a Dan Brown of the comic strip, the Beloved opens the points spot on the various characters, analyzing the behavior that each of them has in relation to the case: the family of the victim, the family of the suspect (boyfriend of the victim), the commissioner, the presenter from the appeal “barbaradursiano”... Although try not to leave behind and as an end in itself no character, the screenwriter pulls the most possible in the mind of the suspect, Matthew, looking at his nightmares, and what his brain is giving birth as a reaction to the stress to which it was subjected after the murder of his girlfriend. The colors change, the atmospheres become more blurred and less detailed, the psyche jumps out looking at all the ways to be studied and analyzed by the reader, almost as if to say “Look at me, and leave all the theatre that I is being built around you.” But the strength of the soul of Matthew is not sufficiently forceful to be able to look away from those who are trying, like him, to pick up on the ashes of a news black those 15 minutes of fame.
For sopraelevare the discomfort of a dark moment in the history of a family like any other, comes Ludovica Ceregatti, who with his suddenly dry and defined, it tightens the faces into grimaces of pain, disgust, and anger, similar to the ones that you make when you bite into a lemon is very sour. And it is the most rugged and elusive of life that the designer takes it into his sword, and take it in the war of all days, addressing a cross-section of society in which the more he screams the more it is concealed.
To complete the sad picture, and socio-psychological get Claudia Giuliani, that of the colors chosen masterfully, he touches up scenes of suffering and depression, with dull colors between green and grey, alternating them happy memories and being in the limelight using various types of pink and the colors vivid and brilliant. Definitely Killer Show is a minuet in the comics, in which the three authors know how to manage their roles well for a good result editorial.
