Incredible time at Lucca Comics 2017

(plus several big news!)

Hey souls,
here so many things to say, so I will try to be brief to avoid mileage emails.
2-3 weeks ago we came back from Lucca Comics and Games 2017festival, as always the most stressful event for my press, five days of hell and hard work. But I really want make some thanks:

- first of all infinite thanks to all fans that assaulted Hollow Press stand, you all are always more, year by year, and thanks to you all, this year we have almost quadrupled the sales in this festival with just four meters of booth... I will never forget those first two hours at the stand... where I was steadly with my head down to write, sign, consign stuff etc, a sort of long trance, if I remember well 30-40 people in front of me for two hours with no stop...
I obviously thanks my two assistants, Antonio Lo Muzio and Paolo Vigneri, two true hollow spartans, one of this guy can hold a booth alone, can do anything, no enough words to thanks them. And I will never forget Paolo Vigneri sentence after a couple of days "I really think I have never worked so hard in my life".
Here the full team:


- ah special thanks go to Juan Scassa, the interpreter for Shintaro Kago, he made an incredible work letting the master to 100% enjoy the festival and the experience, no doubt about that just seeing how much they have related each other establishing a strong friendship.

- great thanks to all the artists guest at my stand, this year we got 7 guests, Shintaro Kago, Paolo Bacilieri, Paolo Massagli, Spugna, David Genchi, Danilo Manzi, LaurenceEngraver, they sketched a lot... and I'm so proud that the young italian artists are growing up a such friendship, I discovered with my pleasure they now call themself as "coinquilini del male".


just some curiosity:
- I'm so proud that Paolo Bacilieri won one of the most prestigious award in Europe, he won the Gran Guinigi as "best short story" with the book published with us, Palla!
I made it in live with him but I really want thanks again him for the wonderful words he spent for me on stage during the prizegiving.


- the italian artist Spugna put a sort of record in italian underground comics (I guess), with just this festival he sold out all boxes of The Rust Kingdom we brought there... we are speaking of an half satan, 333 copies! Sold out in the early morning of the fifth day of the festival... congratulation to our Spugna for his amazing comic book, for many critics book of the year yet!
Yeah, Spugna went slaved, see the picture

* we printed 1500 copies of this book and probably it will go sold out within a couple of months, so if you want the first edition, hurry up to order it!

- also we are superproud to have organized a live painting with Shintaro Kago during the festival, this was a particular event, because Kago made about 80% of painting and the rest (all the trashing details from the head) was made by the young italian hollow artists! So a painting at 10 hands!
Finally, they all signed the painting and it went to a charity auction after some hours to help the local pediatric hospital.



NOW SOME NEW ABOUT NEW STUFF ON THE STORE!

a new Hollow Press artist!!! July 03 2016

a new Hollow Press artist!!!

--- LaurenceEngraver ---

yeah my souls, I'm proud to announce that Hollow Press for the first time will publish an emergent artist. It wasn't a guts matter, but simply we just needed to find out a real talent! Indeed I was following him since more than one year, and I need to thanks my friend/author Ratigher that brought my eyes straight to him, he is Lorenzo Baroni, aka LaurenceEngraver.
What was really surprising about Lorenzo is the way he presented himself to me.
I cant hide that constantly we recive submission from authors, but they are always so vague!
With Lorenzo was different, he presented to me an huge and really detailed storyboard for SIX volumes of a dark weird fantasy serie, apparently mainstream, but really underground indeed, full of desgusting and weird stuff, but at the same time, something I couldnt see since a couple of decades, in Lorenzo arts there is always a lot of DRAMA... what a classic word, maybe! But so classic that right now it's extremly original and uncanny.
At that time suddenly I contacted him to publish his work, yeah I can do it, not the usual incomplete story, but something really concrete, there was a lot of emotion in that fucking saga, I could see that was really important for him to draw that saga. Furthermore, he has a great techinque yet, and it's pretty fast. So no doubt... BUT!
He was still a student (right now he is only 21 years old), so I was waiting, and a month ago I discover that his thesis and graduation was scheduled, so I went to give a look at his thesis work, and it was PERFECT to present himself to people, to Hollow Press followers... in that thesis we can perfectly understand his art's aim, and that fucking thesis looks like a birth, maybe the LaurenceEngraver artistic birth. So in waiting of the main serie that we will start to publish next year, called "ABERRATION", I have the pleasure to present you some preview of the book/thesis OLTREMONDO, that will be presented and signed this 28 of June in Rome. Precisly at the IED (Istituto Europeo di Design).

extracts from OLTREMONDO by LaurenceEngraver:









---------------------------------------------------


This newsletter is also important because I want notice you that Hollow Press will be present with multiple shapes at maybe the best underground festival here in Europe, the Crack! festival of Rome, this 23-24-25-26 of June. The whole Hollow Press catalogue will be available at the Justindiecomics stand.
And the artist Gabriel Delmas (Largemouths and Fobo) will be the GUEST STAR at the Crack main stand to sketch his books andhe will make a special live wall painting for the event! So if you can go in Rome don't forget to meet him!

Amazing review from one of the biggest Gabriel Delmas' fan! -by Debbie Levin December 13 2015




Amazing review from one of the biggest Gabriel Delmas' fan!

The thrill of having this book in my possession, I wonder if I can even communicate it.
Sharing the work of other artists is always a pleasure, and I do it often and I do it happily. But I have so far not shared anything by an artist whose work is so full of all the things I want to do, everything in the world that moves and obsesses me, images that make me laugh with their subversive humor and images which move me to tears and even rage…. because they pierce the veil through which I see and feel things, and they pierce it in a way I know I have not felt before.
That artist is Gabriel Delmas. The book is Largemouths (reissue of Grandgousiers).
Everything I want to do in art can be found in this book. I could give you a lot of words about this book, I could describe the plot, I could tell you about the sheer technical brilliance of his drawings, or the way he is able to tell an epic story entirely through images, without ever having to use a word, I could tell you that it’s on a par with the greatest silent films, which could communicate a world entirely through expression and feeling and movement, and how you could enjoy it for the many sly references to myth and literature and poetry and art. I could do all of this because all of this is true. The book works on all these levels. But it’s not going to capture what Gabriel Delmas has done. Not fully.
What makes this book soar is the vision behind it. The sheer anarchic, subversive, defiantly original vision, a vision that runs the spectrum from comedy to tragedy. A vision that is very personal and yet universal.
To me, it is not enough to draw brilliantly, though that is a wonderful thing. And it is not enough to tell a good story either, though it’s very pleasurable to read one. There has to be more, it has to reverberate, I have to feel like I’ve been taken to a place I’ve never seen or felt. But yet that place is very familiar to me, even in all its strangeness. I have to feel, on top of all of that, that something profound has changed. That I am not just seeing a different side or picture, a little slice of weirdness, but in fact, my own vision has changed. The way everything looks to me has changed. The world appears different. To me.
I feel these things are powerfully captured in this book. And it wasn’t overnight that it happened, it was a more subtle thing. I fell in love with the drawings first, because they are superb. In fact, I wanted the book because of the art. But something else happened when it came into my possession. And this thing, I have spent countless hours going through the book to figure out this thing….but it is impervious to analysis. I cannot separate it out, I cannot pinpoint a drawing or a place in the book because it is seamlessly woven together, and the power is in the whole.
There must be something universal in it, that holds the key of all the mysteries that enchant and haunt and inspire and even terrify me. Or else I am insane. I wonder if other people who look at it will feel all these things.
But if you want to find out, the book, if you choose to look closer, is here:

I want notice you that are left only 150 copies + some copy for advertising (not numbered)
of U.D.W.F.G. vol.1, it will be available for distribution for the last bunch of copies, and 50 of them
will be not for sale, reserved for Hollow Press archive. So hurry up!

also only 100 copies left of U.D.W.F.G. presents: Shintaro Kago. Only 50 of them will be available
for sale, the other 50 copies will be reserved for next Lucca Comics and Games festival in the end of October.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Important update about the shipping policy:
the cheap ordinary mail is a good choice to save some money, but you HAVE to know that it is an ordinary mail (not trackable). I have studyed the results of the last hundreads of shippings done and this is the report: it usually take 5-10 days to deliver in Europe, 15-20 days to deliver in USA-CANADA, 20-30 days to deliver in all other countries like Australia, Sud America, Japan, China etc. (yeah! Hollow Press got several orders from China customers too!)
Considering an average of 100 shippings through cheap and ordinary way, 90 respect the time of delivery, 9 got a delay of 10-15 days, and 1 go lost. So it is a good way to order, but if you live in a particular place, or you are an anxious person, please choose the option that I have just set, the registered mail option (obveously more expansive), here the brackets:


International Registered Shipping 0-0.5 kg --- 0.00 kg - 0.50 kg = €10.00 EUR
International Registered Shipping 0.5-1 kg --- 0.50 kg - 1.00 kg = €14.00 EUR
International Registered Shipping 1-2 kg --- 1.00 kg - 2.00 kg = €18.00 EUR
