Tacticles collects 80 pages of powerful art and sketches from Gerardo Ceglia, a young professional Italian artist from Naples.

Gerardo is probably one of the shyest people I have ever met. He is also your friendly neighborhood (pun intended) family man, much in love with his wife and incredibly gentle with his children.

Things changes when he takes out his pencil and brush from of his drawer.Those are the artifacts he pours his inner power into. The shy man completely changes as strong lines run around the sheet. Beautiful women with bodies you can almost interact with come out of nothing, only to be perfected by powerful strokes of ink. Muscles are built on men, matching strong facial features and glances that can make you shake. Aliens, pirates, cow-boys, gunslingers and detectives are like real-life people leaving in a world like our own, only black & white.

Gerardo has never visited New York, the Nevada Desert or Mars, yet when they take their place in panels they are not just done right, they have the right feeling. You don’t ready the tale, you touch it, and the story touches you back, like a shadow on your own shadow. Yet power is not the only things there is in Gerardo’s art.

The feeling of retroism the run through his art is the perfect touch that softens the edges, making things nostalgic, but no less believable.

Come and touch it!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
