Irene e i clochard by Ruppert & Mulot

Straight from contemporary art, Ruppert & Mulot approach the medium of comic to tell a compelling story. A girl, alone with her sword, homeless guys, a devastated body, and the will to expose nowadays violence through a continous disclosure, made with drawings that are minimal but sharp as a stroke of the sword.
