Author: Noah Van Sciver
Publisher: Fantagraphics Books
This sophomore graphic novel from Noah Van Sciver may seem like a left turn from his critically acclaimed debut graphic novel biography of Abraham Lincoln (The Hypo), yet upon closer reflection, it showcases Van Sciver’s preoccupation with pathos and the human condition. Saint Cole depicts four days in the life of a twenty-eight-year-old suburbanite named Joe, who works at a pizzeria to support his girlfriend Nicole and their infant child―and then Nicole invites her troubled mother to move into their two-bedroom apartment until she lands on her feet again. Joe reacts by retreating into alcohol: he wants out, and he's angry. He’s in a position to act rashly―and he does.

Un gruppo di amici gravita attorno a Cascina Smorta, un casolare abbandonato ai margini della brughiera, dove passano buona parte del tempo libero. La loro è una classica amicizia tra adolescenti, fatta di grandi progetti, illusioni, delusioni e vicende quotidiane destinate a tornare in maniera prepotente.La svolta della loro vita avviene in una sera d’estate quando si addentrano nella brughiera, luogo che invece avrebbero dovuto evitare.Trascorsi molti anni, Andrea Modica torna nella sua città a comandare la Squadra Mobile. Il suo ritorno sembra fare da catalizzatore a vecchi fatti rimasti in sospeso dal 1977 e che lui ora deve ricomporre, come i tasselli di un complesso puzzle, con un paziente lavoro di indagine, quando alcuni corpi vengono trovati nei boschi circostanti Cascina Smorta.In un susseguirsi di flash-back, Modica, dovrà fare i conti con il suo passato per scoprire la vera identità del serial killer a cui sta dando la caccia. Nessun Messia aveva salvato l’umanità, né liberato tutti gli schiavi, né convinto gli uomini a fare qualcosa di più utile che non scannarsi in continuazione. Quello che ci aveva provato s’era scontrato coi peggiori guerrafondai del tempo, i romani delle legioni, dell’Impero, dei gladiatori, ed era stato attaccato al legno di una croce con tre chiodi.Non c’era nessuna salvezza, non esisteva nessuna redenzione. Non per questa umanità.
