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!
