Kris Kool is my first comic. It was published in 1970 by Éric Losfeld (Le Terrain vague) in the wake of the pop of Barbarella, Jodelle, Pravda, Saga de Xam… Some legal problems (of which Losfeld was customary) meant that the album was only released briefly and could have completely disappeared with the pestle if Losfeld had not stashed a few boxes here and there while waiting for better days, which means that, years later, we find some of them in new condition.

Kris Kool (1970)
Kris Kool is Caza’s first comic. It was published in 1970 by Eric Losfeld (Le Terrain vague) in the pop wake of Barbarella, Jodelle, Pravda, Saga of Xam… Some legal troubles (Losfeld often had) drastically reduced the comic’s life which could have disappeared completely if Losfeld did not stashed a few boxes here and there, waiting for better days. This way, years later, you can find comics album as new.

Kris Kool, adventurer viaggiatore che in vita sua ha visto cose che noi umani non possiamo nemmeno immaginare, è anche un pilota di astronavi alla ricerca di un armatore per un prossimo lavoro. Ma stavolta ha incontrato sul suo cammino le persone sbagliate e ora è naufrago in fuga, su di un pianeta sconosciuto. Dovrà affrontare parecchi psichedelici contrattempi per rimanere in vita e nessuno sa se troverà la via del ritorno verso casa.”
Questa poderosa opera pop-psichedelica non è mai stata ristampata sin dalla prima edizione inglese del 1970, e non è mai nemmeno stata tradotta e pubblicata in altre lingue.
È pertanto con soddisfazione e enorme orgoglio che Passenger Press finalmente ripresenta la riedizione riveduta e corretta di “KRIS KOOL“ di Philippe Cazaumayou in arte CAZA, completamente rimasterizzata, con una new e scintillante ricolorazione, con una new grafica moderna ma rispettosa delle scelte naif dell ‘epoch.
Un’opera ingiustamente dimenticata, che ritorna in vita in a new editorial jacket, allo stesso tempo fedele alla prima edizione inglese.
Format of the book 21×28 cm.
96 pages a colori su carta bianca bio top next 140 gr.
Copertina a colori su cart SIRIO PEARL 350 gr.
Brossura rilegata in filorefe.
Prima edizione riveduta Marzo 2019
