What he wanted to be Carol Swain Necklace "Prospero''s Book"
What I wanted it to be is the magnificent graphic novel that marks the return of Carol Swain, author of international fame. With a rhythm of the film and a narrative minimalist that recalls the literary writing of Raymond Carver, Carol Swain tells the story of Helen, a birdwatcher amateur who lives in a rural community of Wales. When a local farmer says that a "rare bird" named Emrys (the name with which it is often called Merlin) has committed suicide in a nearby farm, she decides to investigate. One of the dogs of the farm, who explains that Emrys "had no feathers and could not fly". The attempt of Helen to learn more turns into a journey of self-discovery, his freedom, and at last, in a hard reconciliation with the world as it is. In What was intended to be, the inner life of Helen is slowly revealed through a mixture of naturalistic details and events phantasmagorical; a journey in which she discovers herself through her choices.

"Ariel", a new series of graphic novels, and a container where put in the common a feeling that is declined in the feminine
The Tunué continues the expansion of the editorial proposals with the launch of a new series – "Ariel" – conceived by the editorial director Massimiliano Clemente, which entrusted the development theme and the artistic coordination of Simona Binni, author Tunué since debut.
"Ariel wants to be a place of encounter and dialogue in which the authors and authors can tell the issues dear to women, in an attempt to create a space where you can put in common a feeling that is declined in the feminine.
Given the great expansion that the market of the graphic novel is having in these years, we believe will be of great interest to a connotation of the theme as that proposed by the new series.
The world of comics and the graphic novel of the Italian is currently among the most innovative in the transformation, with a growth in the publishing market in the last year of 30%.
Therefore, we propose a project that opens prospects of dialogue on the thought of the difference between male and female, and that put into question the blind adherence to a world of stereotypes and, all too often, dogmatic constructs.
As the series flagship, the "Prospero''s Books" – with more than eighty titles in the catalogue – even the name "Ariel" refers to the shakespeare play The tempest, where Ariel is a spirit of the air, devoid of characterization and sexual. It is precisely this ambiguity to foster the imagination of a place and a metaphorical encounter between the masculine and the feminine.
Among the authors who will give a start to this new series there will be Assia Petricelli and Sergio Riccardi, the pair of authors, which in 2014 has given life to the success of Bad girls. The fifteen stories of women daring and creative, published by Sinnos; the journalist Luciana Cimino and the cartoonist Sergio Algozzino, that will tell the life of Nellie Bly, the first investigative journalist and creator of the kind of journalism is under cover; the writer Cristiana Alicata and the designer Philip Paris.
