The Long Tomorrow is the title of a short story comic written by Dan O'Bannon around 1975 or 76, and illustrated by Moebius.

Director: Michele SoaviThis movie is based on a novel of Tiziano Sclavi, and it always reflects the "sclavian philosophy" diffused by the most succesful comics in Italy: Dylan Dog, the detective of the nightmare. There is the duality between love and dead (in Italian "dellamore" means "of love" and "dellamorte" means "of death"), a duality that Dellamorte feels in a really hard way. He is the guardian of the cemetery of Buffalora, a little town in the north of Italy, in which, we don't know why, corpses rise from tombs and Dellamorte has to destroy them.

Manuel Puig: Poljubac žene pauka
El beso de la mujer araña argentinskog pisca Manuela Puiga štampan je prvi put 1976. godine. Radnja romana prati dvojicu zatvorenika Molina i Valentina, i njihov odnos u zatvoru. Molina je feminizirani homoseksualac, dekorater izloga, koji je osuđen zbog zavođenja maloletnika, dok je Valentin politički zatvorenik koji pripada revolucionarnoj grupi.
The novel's form is unusual in that there is no traditional narrative voice, one of the primary features of fiction. It is written in large part as dialogue, without any indication of who is speaking, except for a dash (-) to show a change of speaker. There are also parts of stream of consciousness. What is not written as dialogue or stream of consciousness is written as metafictional government documentation. The conversations between the characters, when not focused on the moment at hand, are recountings of films that Molina has seen, which act as a form of escape from their environment.
Director: Witold Swietnicki
