GLI EISNER AWARDS, A SAN DIEGO, QUASI ADESSO

Paggggggga_copia_2

Mentre alla convention di San Diego vengono consegnati i premi per le migliori categorie di opere e operatori del Fumetto (di seguito i vincitori degli Eisner Awards, annunciati la sera di venerdì scorso), inserisco un’immagine che farà sussultare almeno un frequentatore di questo blog. È tratta da un fotoromanzo impostato da Ausonia (http://ausonia-pinocchio.blogspot.com/) una settimanetta fa, in occasione delle 24 ore di produzione di tavole senza tregua, per l’iniziativa tenutasi nell’ambito di Italia Wave, a Osmannoro (FI).
La domanda posta dall’attrice del fotoromanzo potrebbe essere rivolta ai compilatori dei blog di “Nòva”; forse qualcuno di loro la sentirà sua, come mia la sento…
I particolari in cronaca sui giorni di Italia Wave, direttamente nel sito di Ausonia sopra citato, ovviamente in quello dello Spazio Bianco(www.lospaziobianco.it/). Alcuni commenti, in generale; sono invece graditi qui.
