le Storie… all the faces of Adventure!

Each month, a new hero, a new setting, a new genre: Stories to discover one after the other...

«A new series of unique, original, adventurous comics stories...». That’s how, back in 1976, Sergio Bonelli introduced the “flagship” of his already huge production, at the time collected under the trademark of Edizioni Cepim. The series Un Uomo un’Avventura was just that: a meticulous choice of the “best” — the best-liked and most inventive authors, the most exotic settings, the cleverest narrative solutions...     

It can hardly be denied that a thin – and solid – thread links that enterprise to le Storie. A monthly series that tells everything upfront, already with its own name: each book will be a homage to the ancient art of storytelling, of evoking emotions, of the recreation of “mind sceneries” where we can roam without boundaries. And obviously, everything always under the sign of Adventure. This will be the “keyword” we’ll delve in each and every month, to explore all its nuances, up to its less straightforward elements. We will travel through space and time, through the “scenarios” provided by History and the alleys of unbounded fantasy, through jungles and deserts, but also inside the unfathomable mazes of the psyche, between genius and madness, love and revenge…

The seed is deeply sown in the field of the Bonelli tradition, but which fruits will grow on its highest and furthest branches... that’s unforeseeable! Since 1976, a lot of things happened, the world has changed and so have the taste, the “trends”, the characters and the language of fiction. Side by side with stories permeated by a nostalgic exoticism you’ll find sci-fiction escapades, next to the Crime Story there will be the Horror, the eternal War saga will change places with the Gangster Story, the Fantasy and – and why not? – the Western... and so on, following a track that runs free through all the territories – the “genres”, if you like – the fantasy of our Storytellers was able to conceive.

The only constant feature? The professional care and the creative passion that first-rate authors of the comics world will put into the realization of these compact works. They’ll all work towards the same goal, timeless just like the art of narration: to involve, move and entertain their readers.
