    Really beautiful, smart and heart touching story of an architecture professor who, when he is 50, learns better It ought to be a five star review, but I kept feeling like the moment the whole thing came together it would be one of the best graphic novels anyone had ever done and one of the finest stories ever told and it reached the end and left me feeling that had it all come together perhaps had it been much l

    Reading Asterios Polyp is a daunting experience Or maybe not so much the reading, which can be accomplished easily enough, but the being able to speak sensibly about it afterward I feel kind of like how I did after finishing2666 , only not quite so out of my depth Like Bola o, Mazzucchelli s work here displays a breadth and depth that overtly requires multiple readings in order find ground solid enough to speak wit

    book 9 for Jugs Capes Also this is my second review for CCLaP, and my first in a year long series reviewing graphic novels W00t This is the first in an essay series I ll be doing for CCLaP called Jugs Capes, where I look at graphic novels from a girl s point of view I m not going to say a feminist point of view, because I think that s a complicated word, one which any thinking woman has a complicated relationship with

    One of a few genius books in graphic novels, one of the great ones And improbably, about a logical, theoretical architect To really appreciate this one, you may have to BE an artist, because much if the story is in form, color, design so I am still learning, but it is done by a superhero artist, who for years has labored in the background except he is also the Batman One guy who breaks out in his own brilliant direction

    What if reality as perceived were simply an extention of the self Wouldn t that color the way each individual experiences the world That might explain why some people get along so effortlessly, while others don t Although people do keep trying.Yet, despite such predisposition, maybe one person s construction of the world, could influence someone else sDon t we all, at some point or another, find ourselves stuck in a certain

    The first proper graphic novel I ve read This was such a beautiful and heartbreaking piece of work, it ll be nigh on impossible to top it It is rich in glorious meditation, comedy, irony and romance, weaving deep questions of binary opposites, architectural philosophy, life the universe and everything around a dissolving relationship story I don t have the vocab or knowledge to comment on the artwork s nuances, but the artist

    I might have to read this one again to catch all the subtleties of the story What s amazing about this graphic novel is that it is jam packed with ideas, but most of the ideas are embedded in the art itself, and not in the words some of it is in words, but it s like a riff that plays along with the visuals At the same time, all these ideas do not in any way make it a gooey dense landscape to slodge through The book is such a plea

    Wow Just finished in one reading session this magical work of art Together with Daytripper , this is my all time favorite graphic novel I don t have much to say about it, as I don t think I have rationalized it much yet visually, it s extremely creative and exciting Rich with inventions and ideas The story reminded me of a Chinese saying Two thirds of what we see is behind our eyes , and a lot of this novel is about that crucial asp

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I don t really understand the hype over this graphic novel I thought it was boring an educated, middle aged white man feels like his life has fallen apart so he jumps ship and tries to start over again Maybe I just found his self absorbed personality too off putting, but I didn t really feel any sympathy for him or care about his ideas about how the world w

    But why must choices always lie along a linear spectrum with two poles instead of say among a sphere of possibilities
