Sergio Bonelli Editore has announced an incredible amount of news at Lucca Comics & Games. Historical newspapers that are renewed, new books for a more mature audience under the Audace label, the beginning of crossovers with DC Comics between Zagor And Flash and the arrival at the cinema with Dampyr.


More details of the film were then released in 2019.

Later, probably also due to the pandemic, traces of the project were lost. Last fall something had been glimpsed at the exhibition Bonelli Storywithout official announcements.

Below are posters and synopsis, but it is likely that in the next few days, even through the official Facebook pageother news will arrive, such as a first teaser trailer.
