《Canicola》No.3

不厭其煩地,再三提起Canicola。不厭其煩地愛他們。不厭其煩地告訴別人,這團來自意大利波隆的隊伍是當今世界漫畫最重要的隊伍。

三年前,在波隆美術學院執教的Edo Chieregato教授,以及漫畫家Andrea Bruno號召幾位居於波隆的年輕漫畫家和美院學生,組成Canicola,甫推出《Canicola》合集即見其風格編選之嚴格,這是關乎繪畫與書寫美學的實踐與突 破。

不厭其煩地反覆閱讀,及抄引他們這段驚心動魄的關於畫漫畫的statement:

"Throw your eyes into the sea like a buoy. Narrating stories to make things endless, to stop the sadness. Tell a story with silence, with ambiguity, with emptiness. Telling a story the hard way, if necessary. Narrating the necessary, if possible. Incline emotions through action. Squeeze the drawings, dominate the errors, question sincerity and have a conversation with uncertainty. Demand attention, discover what is barely perceptible. Destroy the crosswords, cancel all its numbers and just stare at the blank squares. Gaze the black and white and put them into a portrait. Your eyes into the sea like fishing hooks, deep in the water. Observe what is real, tell a story. Stories like bodies, tales like buoys, narration like hiccups. Language like clothes, sign seen as a voice. Conversations in a magazine. A chess-like magazine, divided by affinities and contrasts. A tiny magazine with the desire to grow. Even number-wise. We have opened up a bit in this issue, pulling our chairs closer together and making room for Gian Alfonso. A good angel for us, a great narrator, one that we love to listen. One that never annoys us. Even when he is singing. This is how we would like to open up each time. Because it's in our nature. Because you can move around by areas but also following simple feelings. We would love to host other artists in the future. We don't have any plan yet. We feel cold. An apartment building magazine."
-- Edo Chieregato寫於《Canicola》No.3

在這裡發現幾位以前從不認識但喜歡得不得了的漫畫家。Giacomo Monti那含蓄、近乎沒自信的筆觸,跟他描寫的入微的人際關係來得配絕,Monti本人在酒吧打工,晚上見盡麻甩佬百態,他對步入中年的恐懼也寫進漫畫裡;Andrea Bruno的戰爭故事,並非提供官能刺激的格鬥,看他以撕裂般的黑色塊呈現的現實,冷酷又抽離的觀感也是作戰中人的心理描述;Edo Chieregato編寫、Michelangelo Setola繪畫的單親父子故事,從《Canicola》第一期起連載,寫的不單是父子的隔膜,也是剛步入青春期男生的憂郁的思惑;還有我的最愛 Amanda Vähämäki的"Stamp thieves",很難想像那麼溫順的小小人物如何在污煙瘴氣的世界裡謀個小差存活,Vähämäki畫筆下的寧靜和純粹是無人能及的,我一直相信,而且虔誠地崇拜著。

因為從旅程裡扛了一批書回來,沒辦法逐次交收,於是放在阿麥書房寄售。再說一遍:書最好是在書店賣的。又因為扛來的書太多,其中一批郵寄回來,可是郵遞失誤,有部份《Canicola》第三期、以及原本想一氣寄售的第二期至今仍然不見影蹤。本來也想多找一個地點寄售,可是數量不夠了,就去阿麥吧。

這次不設網上留書了,請大家向書店垂 詢 (聯絡方法見下),相信《Canicola》定能滿足大家飢餓的眼睛。順帶一提:內文附英文翻譯對照。數量極有限,售完即止。
