The exhibition will recount the Italian editorial adventure of this Master through 40 original artworks, both black and white and coloured, drawn from his works published by Coconino Press over the last 15 years.

This will be the first solo-exihibition in Italy for the acclaimed author of Saitama: an unmissable opportunity to peer at first hand into the technques and the secrets behind the birth of his bewitching dark world, filled with ruthless demonic creatures, deceiving monsters and kindhearted outcasts, characterized by many facets and never trivial, true reflection of our contemporary reality.
