By Manuel Vicent,El Roto

El escritor Manuel Vicent y el ilustrador El Roto embisten contra una costumbre que despierta pasión y odio por igual en este alegato antitaurino.

Esta Antitauromaquia es algo más que una diatriba contra los angeles fiesta nacional. l. a. costumbre primitiva de sacrificar toros en público y convertir esa muerte en una ceremonia ethical ha perdido ya toda su estética. l. a. corrida ha quedado solo en un residuo de aquella España negra, zaragatera y triste en l. a. que los angeles crueldad con los animales no se distinguía de l. a. violencia social y política. El espectáculo de l. a. muerte festiva de un toro supone una agresión a los angeles sensibilidad humana.

«Su gusto por el detalle no disminuye los angeles contundencia gráfica. Cuando Vicent habla de algo lo ofrece abierto en l. a. mesa de quirófano.»
David Trueba, Babelia

«El Roto tiene una eterna capacidad de señalar el punto más susceptible de nuestra sociedad, de acertar siempre con sus demoledoras críticas.»
