In questi mesi che, stiamo lavorando per il progetto di Fumettomania “ANTHROPOCENE (… OVVERO POTREMMO SALVARE IL NOSTRO PIANETA)”, siamo molto attenti alle notizie, che ci giungono dall’Italia e all’estero, relative a progettualità e a fumetti aventi temi legati al nostro progetto oppure simili al nostro.

Oggi, grazie al blog downthetubes.net, è la volta di questo volume inglese: “The Most Important Comic Book on Earth”, una collaborazione globale per il cambiamento planetario, con il lavoro di 300 creatori provenienti da tutto il mondo, del quale pubblichiamo in Anteprima europea “Selfless Giant” il fumetto di Andy Serkis, Danijel Zezelj, Bernardo Brice, che troverete in questa antologia.

Siamo tutti uniti per creare Storie per salvare il mondo“, afferma con entusiasmo il coordinatore del progetto ed editore Paul Goodenough, che, come abbiamo riportato in precedenza, ha riunito un’incredibile serie di talenti diversi per il libro, dai creatori di fumetti ai leader ambientalisti, artisti, autori, attori, registi, musicisti e altro ancora.

Inoltre, visto che sul blog dell’amico John Freeman (responsabile stampa del Lakes Festival di Kendal (UK) , è stato pubblicato il 6 luglio un secondo articolo avente per titolo “Andy Serkis’ Rewriting Extinction comic “Selfless Giant”revealed (Rivelato il fumetto di Andy Serkis “Selfless Giant”, per il progetto Rewriting Extinction) legato sempre a questo libro abbiamo deciso di unire i due preview.

Buona lettura, e ricordiamoci di salvare il nostro Pianeta ….

" The Most Important Comic Book on Earth", volume disponibile per il pre-ordine

Two years in the making and crammed with a huge, entertaining and challenging variety of comic stories, The Most Important Comic Book on Earth is now available to pre-order, a global collaboration for planetary change, featuring the work of 300 creators from all over the world.

“We’ve all come together to create Stories to Save the World,” enthuses project co-ordinator and editor Paul Goodenough, who, as we previously reported, has assembled an incredible array of diverse talent for the book, spanning comic creators, leading environmentalists, artists, authors, actors, filmmakers, musicians and more.

The Most Important Comic Book On Earth offers “Stories to educate and inspire people for environmental change,” Paul explains, “but, mostly, to take the conversation out of the worthy and scary spheres and into popular culture.

“Our stories are silly, funny, heartbreaking, dramatic – they are everything except dull and factual!”

“Melody”, by Cara Delevingne, Eco Resolution, Kieron Gillen and Sean Phillips, “made with deep love and optimism”, dropped onto the official #RewritingExtinction web site, social media earlier this month, on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok and Twitter

Featuring over 120 stories to save the world, on offer are inspirational tales from celebrity names such as Cara Delevingne, whose comic was released online as a teaser, attracting over ten million page views, and Andy Serkis, hilarious webcomics from War and Peas and Ricky Gervais, artworks by leading illustrators David Mack and Tula Lotay, calls to action from activists George Monbiot and Jane Goodall, and powerful stories by Brian Azzarello and Amy Chu.

Combined, the comics in this anthology will support projects and organisations fighting to save the planet – and, hopefully, Rewrite Extinction.

As author, like everyone else involved, I’m donating 100% of my royalties of this to species saving projects with Rewriting Extinction, an incredible fundraiser that aims to stop species going extinct.

we-are-rewriting-extinction-purple

Rewriting Extinction is a campaign to raise money and awareness for seven projects to tackle both the climate and the biodiversity crisis. These project are evidence-based, actionable, and ready to rollout in the next 12 months and will help stop species going extinct, once and for all.

The overarching plan comprises projects from Greenpeace, World Land Trust, Born Free, Re:wild, The Wildlife Trusts, Reserva and Rewilding Europe, and promotes simple, but powerful, actions we can all take.

Rewriting Extinction want to represent a moment in time when, collectively, we put species extinction and biodiversity to the top of all our agendas. All the projects they are aiming to fund offer permanent solutions that can start right now… within the 12 months the campaign will run.

It’s project that not only promotes great environmental causes, but is being enhanced by comics, too – and I hope you are by now suitably encouraged to pre-order a copy of The Most Important Comic Book on Earth!

If you are able, please also donate to support the various projects chosen that will make a difference to wildlife and the environment, tag your friends, like, share and comment the social media posts on your preferred platforms.

Let this be the moment we say “No More Extinction” and start rebuilding their world, for all our benefits.

Thanks for reading.

John Freeman

Securing Global Ocean Protection

There are over two million species in the ocean – but overfishing, pollution and climate change are causing catastrophic biodiversity loss. Creating hundreds of oceans sanctuaries across the world would have an extraordinary effect on life in our oceans. Where marine areas are properly protected, fish populations have been shown to increase more than six-fold.

Our fate is bound to the fate of our oceans. They do more than harbour incredible wildlife – they support all life on Earth. By producing half our oxygen and soaking up huge amounts of carbon dioxide, oceans are one of our best defences against climate change. If they don’t make it, we don’t either.

Protecting our oceans needs international co-operation. Greenpeace is campaigning around the world to persuade Governments to agree to a strong Global Ocean Treaty at the United Nations. This is an historic opportunity to create oceans sanctuaries, areas safe from human exploitation, across at least 30% of our oceans by 2030.

Wherever a proper ocean sanctuary is created, the results are dramatic. Habitats recover. The fish come back. Life finds a way. A global network of sanctuaries is a brilliantly simple – and achievable – solution to some of the threats our oceans face.
