It has been hidden in the teenagers’ backpacks, in professional folders, even in lawyers’ briefcases, ready to be pulled out during a coffee break, at lunch or on the way back home from office. Every one of us has had a copy of Dylan Dog. Adults and kids. "Judas dancer!" (Dylan Dog’s “Giuda Ballerino!” phrase) would be the proper expression: the most intriguing, mysterious, terrifying and sexy comic strip in Italy (as well as best-seller after Tex) is back to celebrate the 30th anniversary from its first edition.
Nine years of silence
Since 2007 Tiziano Sclavi stopped writing stories for Dylan Dog. The last one was “Elevator to Hell” (Italian: "Ascensone per l’inferno"), released in June 2007 with the edition n. 250. Now thanks to the hand of Giampiero Caserta an unpublished story with 94 new plates will be out soon. Rumours say the subject is alcoholism. Before the publication of these new stories, the first, long-awaited one written by Roberto Recchioni and Gigi Cavenago will be out with some well-known characters like Xabaras and Morgana. The date is September, 29, when the story "Grieving Mother" (Italian: "Mater Addolorata") will be on sale with the edition n. 361.

This handsome, tall, intelligent, ironic private detective works as the nightmare investigator, hunts monsters, and has a travel companion one of the Marx Brothers, Groucho , his assistant who could be similar to Sir Watson – but who has nothing to do with Watson - always willing to help and support his "boss" with eccentric tips and embarrassing jokes
