Canicola 召集人之一Andrea Bruno的漫畫，一貫的黑白強烈反差效果令人印象難忘，其實原稿是黑色與白色顏料層層疊疊返覆塗畫出來的，但他在印刷時還是要求把畫畫塗塗的過程隱去 了，只印出單色黑。這趟第五期卻多了幾重灰色，其實原稿是共六塊絲網版印成的作品，因為雜誌才力有限只能黑白印刷，讀者只好從黑白中想像灰度，在灰度中想 像彩色，聊以自娛。
"Reading is good for you. I read Cortàzar’s Hopscotch written in 1962. Defined as an 'experimental novel', 'disorder novel', the book suggests, under instructions of the author at least two different ways of reading it: from the start right up to chapter number 56, or to zigzag beginning from chapter number 73. But once you start you go on instinctively following your own interest. The book is divided into three parts: On the other side, On this side, On other sides. In the third part there is a lot of talking about Morelli, a nice presence. Morelli is a writer that has a special idea of Art, consisting most of all in destroying its usual forms, a normal attitude for a good artist. Morelli tries to force reader’s mental habits. For example he hates long and complicated novels. Besides, he cares even less about the connection between parts, and looks for causality between the elements he works with. Morelli asks himself: would he like a story that is not literary at all? Cut out the intolerable sentences, it’s better to have something more rough, more prosaic, something that is just a vehicle for information. Separating what is useful from what is amusing. How to tell a story without using any literary tricks, without winking at the reader? Getting the reader to be an accomplice, by suggesting him, other than the conventional plot, more esoteric ways to interpret the book? Dig into a complicated, inconsistent, anti-narrative text. Cut from the roots every systematic construction of characters and situations. Search for broadmindedness. Reading too much is less good for you."
