An aspiring yuppie romance is tested when a young couple cross paths with a very unlikely femme fatale in the form of an older single mother and ice cream server. With Marco and Stella's lukewarm romance already on the ropes, Daniele's insistent intrusions aren't helping. But when Marco meets Lulu, a single mother and unlikely femme fatale with a mysterious background, he develops an interest that soon veers into obsession and awakens in him a problematic and long dormant sexuality. With a voyeuristic gaze, Vila lays his characters bare, observing them in their hypocrisies, insecurities, and unmentionable desires. Vila's cartooning is alive. Working in a mostly naturalistic mode, he distorts his characters just enough to imbue them with a visceral charge that fuels the narrative's lust. A psychological and grotesque character drama that doubles as an erotic thriller about erotic obsession, mourning, a sense of inadequacy, and the search for surrogates of affection, Milky Way won prizes and garnered considerable acclaim upon release in Italy in 2022. Miguel Vila was born in 1993 in Padua, Italy where he lives. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna and was awarded the Best New Author prize at the 2022 Lucca Comics Festival.
