Its eyes are at half-mast, it has long furry ears, a bulbous funny nose: it’s called Alberto. A Canis lupus, the great-grandson of Wile E. Coyote. A all-blue-haired-hero by cartoonist Silver since 1974, who now celebrates his 40 years of life. It isn’t the usual alpha dominant male who controls forests and trees. He is not a fierce predator. Lupo Alberto is a canidae with a heart of gold, sympathetic, romantic, good-hearted, a little unlucky. He’s loyal and listens and helps his friend Enrico, a mole. He goes against nature: he’s madly in love with Marta, a free-range chicken. He doesn’t eat chickens! He isn’t discouraged when Moses, a bobtail who acts as a guard at the McKenzie farm, takes bludgeoned. A series of exhibitions will celebrate his birthday all through Italy. Until the first of June 2014 @ WOW Spazio Fumetto – Museo del Fumetto di Milano. Wof!
