“I wrote a little thing, using the character of Jenny. It is an homage for the 5th anniversary of an Italian mailing list [Yattaaa] about women in comics (both characters and artist). So I thought: “what’s better than a female character that could be in EVERY story?”

Here it is, the work is made up by a letter I wrote (in the fiction, by Jenny) to the mailing list, recalling all the nice stories she saw, shifting through the universes… The same stories we people read in other comics.

The characters Jenny met are various, and some are portrayed in the illustration by EdenStudio (Manuela Soriani, Michela Da Sacco, Francesca Da Sacco) and Francesca Zambon.

Hope you like it, even if it’s in Italian (and maybe talks about some characters not famous where you live).” -Mattia Bulgarelli
