New York Times Best-Selling Author Roberto Saviano and Illustrator Asaf Hanuka Debut Graphic Memoir I’m Still Alive in October
BOOM! Studios have revealed a first look at I’m Still Alive, a new original graphic memoir from New York Times bestselling author Roberto Saviano and Eisner Award-winning cartoonist Asaf Hanuka, detailing for the first time ever Saviano’s personal account of his 15 year-long existence as the Italian mafia’s greatest threat and his persistent will to survive, in stores October 2022.
When journalist Roberto Saviano wrote the groundbreaking international bestseller Gomorrah, he exposed the inner workings of the Naples mafia, resulting in real-world investigations into the corruption at the heart of the Camorra. But with the pursuit of justice and worldwide renown came violent death threats and the need for an isolated existence behind armed guards, which Saviano suffers to this day. Joined by award-winning cartoonist Asaf Hanuka, Saviano shares his deepest thoughts and experience of life in Naples, where he witnessed the power and violence of the mafia firsthand, as well as the unvarnished truth of his daily life after exposing the most ruthless and powerful criminal organizations of the 21st century.
I’m Still Alive will be available for sale on October 5, 2022 at local comic book shops and on October 11, 2022 at bookstores.
