Emil Ferris: Monsters, aren’t we all?

“My Favourite Thing is Monsters” is the first work by Emil Ferris, awarded with the Gran Guinigi 2018 for Best Graphic Novel. A publishing sensation applauded by the public and critics alike, which has sold more than 70,000 copies just in the U.S..

A surprising volume on both a graphic and narrative level, 400 pages to slowly lose yourself in Emil’s  fantastic world: “Anyone who lives in fear could become both a good monster and a bad one. We define ourselves by looking at the monsters inside us. When we act out of shame and hate in the face of  strange, proud, passionate and hidden inside us, we become bad monsters. When we choose humility, care, respect, empathy, even wonder and love for that fluffy little thing with fangs, hunted and undesired, wild and unique which is inside us, we make a step towards the good monstrosity”.
