RICHARD SALA'S VIOLENZIA

New release: After an initial digital-only release by the Maestro of Macabre Mystery, Richard Sala's Violenzia and Other Deadly Amusements is at last available in a print edition from Fantagraphics! Sala and I met in the Spy Vibe lair when the book first appeared alongside the release of his recent project, Super Enigmatix, for one of our marathon interviews. I love chatting with Richard because it always means diving into some of my favorite subjects such as The Avengers, Judex, Fantomas, Dr Mabuse, 007, Dick Tracy, classic horror, and much more! During the conversation, Sala discussed the roots of Violenzia, Super Enigmatic, and his many other publications. I'll invite him over again soon to find out more about the new edition of Violenzia. In the meantime, you can read our previous interview here. From the press release: "'Let there be no mercy or forgiveness for they have shown none.' With these words, whispered into the wind, a mysterious young woman leaps into action with wild abandon, twin automatics blazing. Is she a brave and reckless heroine taking on a monstrous evil? Or is she a deranged angel of death? One thing is clear: whether she is dropping from a high window into a crowd of red-robed fanatical cultists, or facing down a horde of psychotic hillbillies, you don’t want to get in her way. Fast moving, Violenzia is a blast of pulpy fun, told in scenes of audacious action and splashes of rich watercolors. With elements of Golden Age comics and old movies mixed with Sala’s trademark humor and sense of the absurd, Violenzia is a bloody enigma masked as eye candy, a puzzle box riddled with bullet holes from comics’ master of the macabre." Violenzia and Other Deadly Amusements can be ordered from Amazon, AmazonUK, and directly from Fantagraphics. You can also find the book in your local comic shops. Book cover, sample images, and kindle book cover below. Enjoy!
