"L'Inferno di Topolino".

This is a 1949 story written by Guido Martina and illustrated by Angelo Bioletto. We're talking about one the first Disney stories fully realized by Italian artists and at the same time the first important one published on "Topolino" (Mickey Mouse) magazine. We're talking about the first "Grande Parodia" (many parodies related to literature and cinema followed).
We're talking about history.
This is a story every fan of Disney comics in Italy knows and loves.
Mickey Mouse is Dante Alighieri, Goofy is Virgilio. Martina used a lot of Disney characters in the story, including the ones from the movies and cartoons.
Now, which artist could best illustrate "L'Inferno di Topolino" today?
Easy and obvious choice.

Fabio Celoni.

Those familiar with his art, know that he's a terrific artist that really shines when working on stories that deal with horror and gothic atmospheres. In particular, I love his Disney stories that make you laugh and, at the same time, have that particular "dark side" that makes them so peculiar and special. If you have the chance, please read "Dracula di Bram Topker", a parody of Dracula with Disney characters brilliantly written by Bruno Enna and magnificently illustrated by Fabio.

This illustration, inspired by Martina & Bioletto's story, really speaks for itself. It's simply crazy what Fabio managed to achieve.
The perspective, the insane details, everything is just plain incredible.
It's the size of an A3, so it's pretty big. And it needs to be seen at its original size to really understand what we're talking about.
And once you start looking at it, it's difficult to stop. Each single element in this picture seems to tell you a story (this particular skill kinda remind me of Norman Rockwell). You're lost in all the details, the magnificence of the composition, the vitality of the characters that really seem to be alive on this sheet of paper.

You can see some amazing close-ups to appreciate the incredible level of detail.

There's also a scan of the pencils, just before the inking phase. I love Fabio's pencils that are purposely not very tight because inking here is not merely tracing lines, but reinterpreting and recreating. That's why the final inked art is so fresh and alive.

Published on Topolino magazine #3000 and also on "Disney d'autore - Fabio Celoni".

I will never find enough words to fully express my gratitude to Fabio for creating this masterpiece!

Paper size: 29.7 x 42.3 cm

Sono fermamente convinto che l'idea "geniale" di C.A.F. serva principalmente a trasmettere la cultura dell'immagine e di tutto ci che ad essa connesso, purtroppo non tutti lo hanno capito .... cos come non tutti sanno mettere delle note esaustive sulle immagini che postano.... continua cos ....
