The great event dedicated to comics, gaming and the whole fantasy world returns to "normality" in the city of Lucca from October 28th to November 1st and surely the characters of Saint Seiya will be very popular in the city, including sales of comics and cosplayers who they will impersonate them.

It is no coincidence that Zerocalcare was called to sign this variant edition: very passionate about the Knights of the zodiac, for him they were a generational point of reference, so much so that he often cites him in his graphic novels and has dedicated numerous tables to us special. According to Michele Rech these characters have marked an era for their heroism and also for their fragility, for this reason one of his favorites is certainly Sirio the Dragon, who gets blinded in order to demonstrate his loyalty on vacation and who, precisely in the version with bloody eyes, it often appears on the tables of Zerocalcare and also on this special cover. On the other hand, even in this case the cartoonist is quite clear when he has to have his say on this drawn and animated saga: "No, I didn't make a comic about the knights of the zodiac, they only made me the cover variant and the box for Star Comics, which is still a great joy for me since the knights of the zodiac were the coolest thing that ever went through the cathode ray tube ".
