Dark Stories (Historias Negras) is a collection of short stories that Alfonso Font created in 1980. They were colored especially for this edition by Ivan Cavini.
With an extremely critical eye, brilliant comic artist Alfonso Font explores some of the darkest facets of mankind and showcases the vilest human weaknesses as a gloomy farce. Written and drawn over 30 years ago, “Dark Stories” first appeared independently in a Spanish magazine, but was never before published in an album format. Now, finally, the stories compiled in this volume have not lost any of their momentum. The compelling aesthetic sensitivity of Mr. Font and his uninhibited drawing style are not for the faint of heart – the powerful imagery and the morbid humor run like golden thread throughout the book and will leave almost nobody indifferent.
