Far from the topics of the classic western: duels with revolvers, stagecoach attacks, Indians on the warpath, lonely cowboys, that the cinema has always presented us, ‘Welcome to Springville’ tells us the story of the inhabitants of a small town in the West. A town like many others, where each one has its own history, its own secrets, its own demons and its own dreams. From the sheriff to the doctor, from the farmer to the gambler, from the saloonkeeper to the repentant son… heroes, maybe… but it is also true that they are beautiful souls who make Springville rich and united. Eleven Berardi episodes of which Calegari draws seven of them (New Nine, May 2022) and Milazzo the remaining four, which are included in this work that we are now presenting to you.
