The Grouchino of Artibani and Cavazzano: A box of powder | Review preview
A cute and spry assistant from the eyes to the dot receives the future clients of Dylan Dog: so begins the: dead man's chest register “A box of powder”, signed by two big names in the Disney comic Made in Italy (D. O. C. G., bear in mind). Francesco Artibani and Giorgio Cavazzano put hand to, respectively, a pen and pencil to give life to the comic par excellence, the one who knows how to make you laugh and throw barbs, not so veiled.
The family Spaulding arrives at the home of the investigator of the nightmare right in the moment when he is not present. We find, unfortunately, having to present its case to the impeccable assistant. So Groucho finds himself having to chase the ghost of an old lady trovatasi a mistake in the house, Spaulding. From here, the two set off in search of the reason why the old lady is still around the world in the form of the spirit, that is, until you meet again at the cemetery...
You ride too much in 32 pages, signed by Artibani and Cavazzano. The dad of PK and Reginella and Umperio Bogarto you are found to manipulate a character that has adapted perfectly to their hands, modelling it as if it were clay. The result is spectacular: the peak of humor does not come down ever, is put to one side in the right moments to give Groucho the phrase to the effect perfect. The old woman ghost, the attitudes of the vulgar, desperate and a little stressed, is a flash of real life (despite its ectoplasmaticità) in the midst of a situation grotesque. The exchange of the polls has never been so fun.
The Maestro of Italian comics, fresh of his 50-year career, engages in the re-creation of the comic character par excellence, both inside and outside the world of comics. The characteristics of Groucho are exalted more than they should: the moustache, the trousers are very wide, the cigar...
The stretch round and soft with Giorgio Cavazzano make it even more funny, the character mike and it does move freely and awkwardly to the inside of the vignette in white. A register is certainly recognizable to meters of distance, given the unmistakable style of the designer.
You can find this albetto on sale soon in the comics stores and bookshops, or on the inside of the box, the Grouchomicon, containing all 12 grouchini + one (by Alfredo Castelli). For sure “A box of dust” is one of the Grouchini that should never miss in your collection, whether you are a fan of Dylan Dog, which in case you're not.
