In the years following the first world war, Italy was torn apart with different ideologies springing up, often pitting families against one another. The family tales of Michael Cavallaro have been turned into an epic tale spanning the time between the two world wars. Parade (with Fireworks) tells the history of a family on their journeys from an Italian countryside, to the coalmines of the American south, and the factories of the northeast.
“This riveting new talent was brought to my attention by Shadowline editor, Kris Simon,” Shadowline President Jim Valentino explained. “Not only is a Michael a brilliant cartoonist, but he’s producing work truly unlike no other in the industry. The mix of art styles he brings to the work certainly has influences from throughout the history of the medium, but they’re fused together with a result I don?t believe people have quite seen before.”
Parade (with Fireworks) arrives in September for $3.50.
