Exclusive Preview: ONE STORY by Gipi

Today we are excited to share an exclusive preview of Gipi’s latest comic, from Fantagraphics, One Story, translated by Jamie Richards.

Gipi (Gianni Pacinotti) is an Italian cartoonist whose Notes for a War Story won “Best Book” at the Angouleme International Comics Festival in 2006 and whose series The Innocents won both an Eisner Award and the Max & Moritz Prize.

Gipi creates page after page of stunning imagery for this book, a story told in two narratives that gets at the heart of the way that the choices our family makes affect our lives for generations after.

From the publisher: Silvano Landi is a successful writer who, at the age of 50, sees his family leave him and his life fall apart. Landi’s great-grandfather, Mauro, is an anxious soldier being fed to the maw of carnage in the First World War. Alternating between past and present, a psych ward and the bloody trenches, and told through complex clues — a lone gas station, an apathetic baroness, found love letters, and shifting from scratchy black-and-white to lush watercolors (sometimes on the same page), A Story documents the origins of pain that serve as the roots of a twisted family tree, and allows the reader to trace the branches.














One Story will be published on July 28th from Fantagraphics.
