It all starts with a misunderstanding: in the middle of the night, Captain Kiddâ€™s buccaneers kidnap the daughter of the governor of Puerto Roco and ask for a large ransom. However, once they return to their ship they discover the kidnapped girl is actually the humble maid Matilde. At first mistreated and relegated to the role of potato peeler, the girl uses all her intelligence and shrewdness to obtain a prominent place on the ship. To the superstitions and prejudices of the naive pirates, Matilde constantly opposes her special, logical and investigative skills, thus helping the shabby crew of pirates to find the most unbelievable treasures.

Discovery o f the values o f friendship a nd mutual help
Importance of sport and nurturing a talent
Johanna – or Jo, as she wants to be called – hates school, cannot stand her friends and doesn’t want to play any sports except basketball: her father encourages her to follow her passion by giving her Michael Jordan’s shirt, shoes and pendant as gifts. With that pendant around her neck, she manages to overcome even the saddest moments, like when her parents are not at home because of their work. Left alone with her grandmother, Jo is dragged to do one of the activities she hates so much: shopping! Forced to try three little coats in a weird shop, she ends up in a parallel world with cupids, peace and rivers of camomile, where everybody loves each other. Despite all this, she wants to return to her world because she hates everyone! Jo treats badly a little creature which welcomes her and shows her affection: she gets angry and screams «I hate you!». Taking off her coat, she immediately returns to her real world but realizes she lost her amulet. She quickly puts on the second coat, hoping to be able to go back for it, but when she arrives in that universe everything has changed: the cupid she had treated badly has become a tyrant and now all the inhabitants spend their days fighting each other. Jo is different and that’s why they do not want her there, they angrily tell her to return to her house, but she must find at all costs her amulet which protected her from any sadness. The little girl realizes how grey and sad that world is now, when everyone is against each other, and understands she must do something to bring peace back!

It is the night of the falling stars, but on planet Earth an unexpected event happens: a cloud prevents the sight of their passage and they fall everywhere, scattering their load of unexpressed wishes. Because of this emergency, the intergalactic rescuers are in a hurry to recover the stars and bring them to the nearest Star Emergency Room. More specifically, the recruiter Flick decides this will be the first undertaking he will carry out on his own, without the help of his useless Master Stock. But travelling from planet to planet, from constellation to constellation to complete his rescue mission, he realizes we always need a teacher: be it Stock, or what we call â€œexperienceâ€?.

Bisognava fare qualcosa! Ma cosa? Guardando il cielo sgombro tutt’intorno gli venne un’idea: - Mi farò dare un po’ di luce da una di queste stelle...
Ma non aveva fatto i conti con le costellazioni: - Con una galassia a disposizione, perché lo chiedi proprio a me? - si lamentò l’Orsa Maggiore.
Flick raggiunse il pianeta Terra e atterrò su una distesa di deserto dove giacevano le meteore cadute. Alcune piangevano per il dolore, altre per lo spavento... Ma, chi più chi meno, ancora brillavano.
I soccorritori caricavano tutte le meteore sulle astro-ambulanze ed ripartivano a razzi spiegati verso il Pronto Soccorso Stellare più vicino che si trovava sul pianeta Marte.

chi ha ucciso kenny?
curie, newton o einstein? È stato einstein per queste ragioni: 1) newton non è stato perché la sua arma non corrisponde al tipo di ferita di kenny. 2) il numero 126 di einstein è un multiplo di 3. con la mano sinistra kenny indica infatti il numero 3. 3) einstein sbaglia a dire la sua stessa formula (e=mc2 è quella giusta). 4) l’arma di einstein corrisponde al tipo di ferita di kenny.

Atmospheres inspired by Tim Burton’s early movies, such as Edward Scissorhands
Myrna was born with the touch of death: as soon as she was in her motherâ€™s arms, she killed her. Her father ran away with her baby daughter, seeking shelter in the middle of the woods. The little girl grew living a solitary life, her hands bandaged, but her father let her know the world around her and her problem, and he taught her making her love many books. When her father dies, Myrna decides to stay alone in the woods, out of habit and because of an unconscious fear. Her touch can kill both people and animals, but not the plants with which she has always been surrounded. One day it will be the plants themselves to show her a path: at the end of the road, Myrna will meet a boy.
He was born in Palermo and currently is living in Rimini. He published the moving graphic novel Storie di un’attesa and the largely autobiographical Memorie a 8 bit, several works with a musical background, such as Ballata per Fabrizio De Andrè and Dieci giorni da Beatle, and the essential essay on the history of graphic design – in comic form – Tutt’a un tratto.

Preface of David Randall, senior editor of Independent on Sunday
A woman me o c e b s a h t tha a symbol
The true story of Nellie Bly, born in New York in the second half of the xix Century, the first woman journalist to deal with the news. A graphic novel telling the story of a woman who became an icon, examined through the juxtaposition with a girl who wants to pursue the same career. The story, told through her memories, recalls her professional adventures: when she pretended to be crazy and she was interned to carry out an investigation about a mental hospital, or when she solo travelled around the world in 72 days, in a period when such actions were unthinkable for a woman. Nellie Bly was one of the few journalists who interviewed Belva Ann Lockwood, the first woman nominated to the US presidential elections in 1884. In those years, the first advertising campaigns were born, and many of them used Blyâ€™s face.
Luciana Cimino She is a journalist, living in Rome. She worked for years at L’Unità and has written articles for many newspapers. She currently manages communication and quality information in the most important Italian agency: HDRÀ.
Sergio Algozzino He has worked with many of the most important comic publishers: Disney, Sergio Bonelli Editore, Becco Giallo... and now he has permanently “landed” at Tunué, with which he has published several titles: Myrna and the touch of death, Little Charon, Stories of a waiting, 8-bit memories, Ten days as a Beatle and the essay All of a sudden. In 2013 he won the Francisco Solano Lòpez Prize as Best Artist. Not only does he work as artist and colourist, but he also teaches in various comic schools.
Ariel is the name of the air spirit in Shakespeareâ€™s The Tempest, a being with blurry sexual features. This ambiguity promotes the idea of a metaphorical place for men and women to meet each other. Ariel is a new graphic novel series that aims to become a space to fill with narrations, a spot where authors of every gender can meet readers of every gender to tell stories concerning gender issues, women empowerment and emancipation. Subjects that are becoming more and more important at any level, from relationship between men and women in everyday life to their cohabitation at work and in the social chain of command.
Sono eccitatissima ma non ho ancora deciso su cosa scriverò, e tu Miriam?
Voglio scrivere dell’inchiesta sul manicomio di Nellie Bly di 50 anni fa. Lei era donna e faceva inchieste sotto copertura, 50 anni dopo siamo ancora relegate in argomenti mondani e… Ancora la polemica contro le quote? Certo! trovo inconcepibile che la Columbia University, pur avendo ammesso le donne fin dalla fondazione, ne faccia entrare una quota limitata nella facoltà di giornalismo.
Questa storia che le opportunità di lavoro in questo campo per noi donne siano limitate deve finire.
Fidati Anne, è il momento giusto per questa polemica. Io voglio la polemica dal mio pezzo.
Vada via signorina, gliel’ho già detto, Miss Bly non riceve visite
Ancora lei? Abbia pazienza signorina, Miss Bly è ormai molto anziana e malata e…
Signorina, non può seccare tutti i giorni!
Ma io ho necessità di farle un’intervista, lasci almeno che le spieghi di persona…

stagione di caccia
A page-turner thriller, both for its rhythm and its beautiful art. Prejudices, a narrow-minded vision of the world and many twists are the successful ingredients of Kraken, winner of several awards in Italy, sold in various countries and soon to be adapted into a movie. In a village buried among the woods, three women run an organic product farm, but the town is inhabited by hunters who do not look favourably at the activities of the women: too modern, compared to their traditions. The life of the place is marked by activities that are always the same, and the hunting of the wild boars, so densely populated in that area, is the main one. Among the dwellers, the chief hunter Bruno is the one who argues the most about the activity of the company that is so distant from the inhabitantsâ€™ habits of the area. The tension becomes more acute when some thefts start to occur, and the hunters immediately find their culprit: they are convinced the migrants did them. Everything that looks different from the common daily routine seems like a threat, and the migrants are seen by hunters as invaders; meanwhile, the real invaders are actually the boars, more and more numerous in the forest area.
Emiliano Pagani He has been working for the magazine Vernacoliere since 1991, he wrote stories for Dylan Dog, and published for Panini and Feltrinelli Comics – the latter with his famous character Don Zauker. An already well-established author on the international scene, he has chosen Tunué as the publisher for his graphic novels.
Bruno Cannucciari After creating stories for Lupo Alberto and other important productions for more than 30 years, he is dedicating his beautiful art to Tunué’s graphic novels: Kraken was his dazzling debut, which made him very popular worldwide.
