Parade (with fireworks)
Parade (with fireworks) is a graphic novel (actually a graphic novelette as it's "only" 64 pages in length) written and drawn by Mike Cavallaro. I only wish that Parade (with fireworks) was longer, but it's still a very rich, mostly true story about a family in Italy that takes place in the early 20th Century during a period of Socialist and Fascist party divisions.
Mike Cavallaro's art evokes that of Seth (It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken - one of my very favorite graphic novels) and that's not a bad style to emulate in my book. Cavallaro also does the coloring and even though I like black and white comics, color is an important part of this book and the story would be greatly diminished if the coloring wasn't as strong an element as it is in Parade (with fireworks).
