On the pages of Dylan Dog monthly series, the 6-album story under the 666 sign will be in the limelight for the first half of 2020.

On the pages of Dylan Dog monthly series, the 6-album story under the 666 sign will be in the limelight for the first half of 2020. The episodes are based on plots and characters taken from the very first Dylan’s stories, mingled with the ones we introduced recently. All the scripts are by Roberto Recchioni, while the artists will be rotating between well-known names such as Corrado Roi, Nicola Mari, Sergio Gerasi, and Giorgio Pontrelli, and cartoonists well-liked in the "indie" scene, like Francesco Dossena. After 666, we’ll see the return of the other writers who brought prestige to the series, starting with Claudio Chiaverotti.

The ColorFest, in February, will have a somewhat experimental format, with three stories that you can read at multiple levels. In May, there will be one story written by Gigi Simeoni with art by Davide Furnò, while in summer Groucho will take centerstage again.

In the February Old Boy, you’ll find artists like Giovanni Freghieri, Luigi Piccatto, and Emiliano Tanzillo working on texts by Bruno Enna, Giovanni Eccher, and Giancarlo Marzano. But there is great news impending, on the series about the Dweller of Craven Road as he was before the revolutionary changes on the regular series. Stay tuned to find out what will happen.

After the stories set in Wickedford, on the pages of the Dylan Dog Magazine, Bloch will be the leading character again, with stories from his past, created by the Paola Barbato-Giulio Camagni duo. In the appendix, a short story starring a young Dylan, by Alberto Ostini & Paolo Bacilieri. Also, in-depth articles and dossiers about the last year in horror.

Meanwhile, Alessandro Bilotta, creator of all the stories published yearly on our Speciale about the Planet of the Dead, is now writing an episode for the prestigious brushes of Carlo Ambrosini.

Tiziano Sclavi will be again at the helm for the second volume of "I racconti di domani", with art by Mari and colors by Giovanna Niro. You will find it at your bookstores in late spring.

The miniseries starring the Monsters' Hunter called Daryl Zed,  that first appeared on "Caccia alle Streghe" will be at your comic bookstores every month until June. All the stories are written by Tito Faraci, with art - after Nicola Mari - by Angelo Stano and Werther Dell'Edera.

Tiziano Sclavi will be again at the helm for the second volume of "I racconti di domani", with art by Mari and colors by Giovanna Niro. You will find it at your bookstores in late spring.

After issue #0, immediately sold out in Lucca and later published in a newsstand edition with two Batman stories, the Recchioni/Dell'Edera/Cavenago trio is working on the team-up between the Nightmare Investigator and the Dark Knight. The colors will be by Giovanna Niro.

We'll see you with the new stories in Autumn, at the next Lucca Comics & Games.
