El puerto prohibido/ The Forbidden Port

El Puerto Prohibido/ The Forbidden Port: Opera En Vinetas En Cuatro Actos


Supported by exquisite, black-and-white pencil illustrations, this touching graphic narrative recounts the journey of Abel, a survivor in a tragic shipwreck who has lost all recollection of his previous life and who sets out on an epic journey to recover his past and his identity. Abel, un n???ufrago que fue perdonado por la mar tras engullirle sin compasi???n, es recogido por una fragata al servicio de su Majestad Brit???nica. Sin pasado, sin recuerdos, sin memoria y sin familia, intentar??? saber qui???n es y qu??? le ha ocurrido allende los mares. Ayudado por los habitantes del pueblo de Plymouth, Abel comenzar??? un viaje sin retorno a su interior que le llevar??? a descubrir sentimientos que no cre???a posible experimentar. Vive y siente esta historia de amor tan puro que desgarra el velo de la muerte... y el coraz???n de aquel que la lea. El puerto prohibido es la primera obra publicada por una joven pareja de autores acostumbrados a trabajar en edici???n y animaci???n con Disney. Tan ???pica como po???tica, nos trae a la mente pel???culas como Master and commander, los versos de William Blake, Shakespeare o Wordworth o las p???ginas de aventuras de Robert Louis Stevenson. La maestr???a del dibujo a l???piz del italiano prescinde totalmente del color para contarnos esta saga mar???tima.
