Salvatore Volume 2: An Eventful Crossing continues the masterfully translated, English-language adaptation of a French comic saga that uses anthropomorphic characters and muted color artwork to spin the saga of a canine mechanic in search of his beloved companion. His chosen vehicle is a bizarre device, piloted with the aid of a tiny human who may as well be his pet. But one distraction after another besets him on his journey, not the least being a cute hitchhiker! Meanwhile, Madame Amadine continues the search for her lost piglet Frank, encountering an arrogant detective, while the rest of her offspring seek to make a not-so-honest living through a phony “organic” cafe and market. The absurdities mount in this wry, whimsical tale, distinctly reminiscent of the classic novella “The Wind in the Willows”. Highly recommended. (Volume 2 of the English translation actually collects volumes 3 and 4 of the original French version).
