It’s a tale as old as time. A ruthless crash test dummy turned hitman falls for a mermaid that’s meant for his boss. Scout Comics has announced Sweetdownfall, this unique thriller coming later this year from creator Stefano Cardoselli.
I’m a fan of Martin Scorsese’s films and in particular of the movie, Goodfellas. I can’t say that it wasn’t the engine of inspiration when I started writing and drawing Sweetdownfall. It’s part of the cake batter of rusty cyperpunk and action movie that makes this series so special to me. I love that Scout Comics gives me the possibility to create freely!
Sweetdownfall folows Jonny, an old-model crash test dummy who has been repurposed as a hitman for Don Vito Coriaci of the sprawling ocean bound city-state Santa Clara City. Johnny is loyal and follows his orders to a T…until he meets the mermaid. She’s a delicacy with healing properties intended for his boss. He falls in love and decides to save her, starting a chase through crumbling skyscrapers and colossal cyber-angel statues amid a hailstorm of lead, breathtaking pursuits, and Mexican standoffs.
