LIBERA forever! We are facing an important solidarity card, a first for many reasons. The first with the new graphics of our Comics Cards. The choice is due to the chance to distance ourselves, when necessary, from the sporting reference. This solidarity card is also the first of a, we hope, long series dedicated to the fight against the mafia. The Comic Card # 27 solidarity card is in memory of Paolo Borsellino.
Judge Borsellino is drawn in a moment of relaxation, with his bicycle, which we wanted to design sports so as to maintain a reference, even if light, to our previous Comic Cards. These men and women who for a lifetime have fought the Mafia logic, they were or are people like us, with loves, passions, thoughts that are often part of our life.
The other important novelty is the close synergy, even more than before, of the figurine with the graphic novel to which it is freely linked. It is an even stronger tribute to the world of comics, it is a way for us to support the Ninth Art and its authors and artists in our own small way.
The drawing is made by Gianluca Doretto, author of “Paolo Borsellino, a story to tell” (Renoir Comics, 2021). The comic board on the postcard, placed under the sticker, is taken from the graphic novel, we have chosen a page full of meaning. The Sicilian writer of the graphic novel Marco Sonseri, a friend of Figurine Forever and now also with the role of our fundamental collaborator, with him was born the idea of this sub-series of solidarity stickers against the mafia.
The Comic Cards linked to fight against mafia have an extremely symbolic number, 109, like the law of 1996 for the public and social reuse of assets confiscated from the mafia.
In the case of this solidarity card, Libera is an important reality in our country, it collects associations, names and numbers against the mafias. His work is often hidden but important, we certainly do not think with our stickers that we can make a difference, but if they can contribute to the support, including media, of their work, the result will be achieved.
Paolo Borsellino died in the mafia massacre in via D’Amelio in Palermo on 19 July 1992, with him the men and women of the escort, whom we wanted to remember on the back of the postcard. Many will have noticed that even in the figurine there is the tree that has become a perpetual symbol of remembrance, for all those who, who have never stopped, have the opportunity to go this way in order not to forget.
FIGURINE FOREVER for LIBERA!
