Format: Paperback
Pick a different graphic novel at random and you'll do better than this. There're imaginative storylines, but there's no will-she-won't-she, no tension, and worst of all no credible dialogue. More than half of the men are off-puttingly incredible too; we're talking vegetable-marrow-size here. I threw this away after a fortnight.

Interesting collection of stories from this Spanish artist 13 April 2005
By Steve Vander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Adult black & white collection of stories by a Spanish artist.

There are six scenes/stories. The first story is titled "... Interruptus." This story involves a man and woman (Minerva) that are trying to fool around but keep getting interrupted by phone calls. (4)

The second story is titled "A Question of Size." This story involves a woman just after arriving at a house with two men and the action they get into immediately. The men are rather over-large. (3.5)

The third story is titled "Impasse." This story involves Marta and Minerva and the overly large man Minerva forces onto Marta. Marta is told to just sit back and relax, and Minerva controls the process (including stripping Marta). Minerva "cleans" up the mess made on Marta. (4.33)

The fourth story is titled: "Stood Up." The story involves Minerva and Marta accidentally in the men's room and having some fun with the men that wander in. (3.9)

The fifth story is titled: "Universal Equilibrium." The story involves Minerva at the beach topless reading an erotic graphic novel. A man has been watching her and the woman who is with him leaves to get food. The man goes to investigate this topless woman. He trips and falls face first into her and . . . (4.25)

The sixth story is titled: "Lively Fantasies." The story involves Minerva playing with some new toys when Marta walks in on her. As Marta and Minerva start to play with each other two men walk in. (4.22)

Overall, the book is well-drawn. The stories are ok but try somewhat too hard to find humor and the dialogue is a little odd. (Overall: 4.03)

Absolutely ridiculous! 19 Jan. 2006
By Book crazy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is no reason why anyone should buy this book, unless one likes poorly drawn stories with ridiculous plots. Of course this is the kind of book people don't really buy for the dialogue...

Having that in mind, the pictures have to do the job, which is not the case here. The drawing is primary, not even high-school-sketching-on the back of your notebook quality. We are not even talking about a naïve quality which can be very hot, we are talking of BAD artistical skills. To finish if off, the stories are not exciting,in fact you get irritated that you have to flip page after page trying to find something interesting.

Buy Belore, buy Noe!
