Astrogamma is a 2015 one-shot reissuing of an episodic comic published between 2005 and 2013 in a magazine called “Hobby Comics”.
Alessandro Caroni took care of the dialogues while I wrote the story and illustrated it.
It's an action packed horror thriller with a tokusatsu twist.
Insanely fast, fierce and ruthless: every aspect of action adventure comics is taken to the extreme.
A sequential effect tour de force
Astrogamma blends western and eastern languages exploiting both their narrative toolsets for a reading experience like no other. It's a sort of John Carpenter meets Devilman explosive mix, where every single visual element is trying capture as much dynamism as possible, brutal grayscale drawings trying to move from a page to another in a reckless run for survival.
Books on fire!
This new edition sports an animated lenticular cover, with 5 frames of animation that seemingly set the book on fire.
Astrogamma was a study in speed in the comic format: how fast can an action sequence feel? Using animation on Astrogamma’s cover gave the book’s interior images a starting pace as if on the verge of moving off the page.
