Youth is cast as a stark fable in Spit Three Times by Davide Reviati (Seven Stories, translated by Jamie Richards), a restless, lyrical epic about three boys and their Roma neighbours set in a postwar Italian backwater. There’s an elegiac economy to Reviati’s glorious panels, which show darkened rooms, fields that bleed into infinity and balletic figures convulsed in rage and ecstasy, as time slips through their fingers.

La forza di un pugno

12 ottobre 2020 Commenti disabilitati su La forza di un pugno

Die Ungeheuerlichkeiten die Reviati in seinem Roman versammelt, treffen wie ein Faustschlag: „Dreimal spucken“ ist ein wunderschöner und zugleich schreckensvoller Comic.

Der Strich des Italieners ist filigran, aber das drakonische Schwarz droht immerfort, alles Gegenständliche zu verschlucken, Personen, Gegenden, Tiere, Dinge – so als würde der Tag von einer lichterlosen Nacht geschluckt. Ohnmacht und Beklemmung breiten sich aus und doch führt das Licht die Regie: Es gibt kein Entkommen, aber Aufklärung darüber, was war. Reviatis Comic ist wenn schon keine – wie auch? – Wiedergutmachung, so doch eine Entschuldigung: Die Lebensbeichte von jemandem, der im dörflichen Ressentiment schuldig wurde. Das alles liefe wohl auf eine Überforderung nicht nur der Leser*in, sondern auch des Comics hinaus, wenn da nicht die vielen Alltagsszenen wären: Die Geschichte dreier Freunde.

“IT IS A RARE pleasure to find a graphic novel where energetic black-and-white drawings and simple but eloquent text are intertwined with such harmony, each enhancing the other. … a prime example of the melding of propulsive storytelling and a distinctive artist’s hand. … Ultimately, Reviati delivers a penetrating view of the vicissitudes of developing into an adult in a world that is fraught with generations of mistrust, anger, and poverty and yet is suffused with the vibrant enchantment of being human.”
