-The print ''Transplant''[http://cs.nga.gov.au/IMAGES/LRG/128621.JPG] by [[Otto Dix]], which I saw yesterday at Düsseldorf, reminded me of [[Italian comics|Italian comic artist]] [[Liberatore]]'s [[Frankenstein]]esque[http://www.stuartngbooks.com/liberatore_les_univers_de_l.jpg] vision [[RanXerox]][http://images.amazon.com/images/P/2226088695.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg], [http://www.bedetheque.com/Couvertures/ranxerox02.JPG], [http://www.italiadiscovery.it/immagini/articoli/164-b.jpg], one of the most neglected comic book series of the 21st century.+#A [[hypothetical]] [[primate]] once thought necessary to explain a perceived [[evolutionary]] [[gap]] between [[ape]]s and [[human]]s.
- +# Any sought-after or valuable intermediary figure or position.
-To my surprise -- I know that Liberatore has not made an album since 1996, not counting ''Femmes''[http://www.stuartngbooks.com/liberatore_les_femmes_de_li.jpg] which has no story -- I stumbled on ''[[Lucy, l'espoir]]'' a [[2007]] [[graphic novel]] illustrated by [[Tanino Liberatore|Liberatore]], many times called the [[Michelangelo]] of [[comic art]], but probably more kin to [[Hendrick Goltzius|Goltzius]] (compare the depiction of [[exaggerated]] [[muscle]] mass in[http://www.artandpopularculture.com/Image:The_Dragon_Slaying_the_Companions_of_Cadmus_%281588%29_-_Hendrick_Goltzius.jpg], [http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b9/Hendrik_Goltzius_-_De_reus_Hercules.jpg] and [http://www.flickr.com/photos/mr_carl/3079728344/])+

-On the cover[http://www.flickr.com/photos/jahsonic/3141708683/] of ''[[Lucy, l'espoir]]''' (En: Lucy, the hope) is an [[ape]] mother holding a baby and looking skywards to the moon on a clear night. On a second plate[http://www.flickr.com/photos/jahsonic/3142535714/in/photostream/], one ape fights another and they both seem to fall off a [[cliff]]. The ape on the cover is [[Lucy (Australopithecus)|Lucy]], an ''[[Australopithecus afarensis]]'' specimen discovered [[1974]], at one time considered the [[missing link]].+
