[ DON QUIXOTE ] By Davis, Rob ( AUTHOR ) Sep-2011[ Paperback ]
[ DON QUIXOTE ] By Davis, Rob ( AUTHOR ) Sep-2011[ Paperback ]
by Rob Davis
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Double Thumbs Up!, 19 Jun. 2015
Don Quixote is a timeless classic of Western literature that still holds as much joy, mirth and relevance as when it was written in 1605.

Davis doesn’t seek to modernise or jazz-up the story. Allowing it to play out and unfold in its own time without any need for abridgement or sensationalism. This isn’t a botch job for the Twitter generation but a real labour of love.

The art style is simple like that of a newspaper strip cartoon but the masterful use of a limited palette enriches the work a thousand fold. Subtle tricks of framing and structure serve to mark out the tale-within-a-tale nature of the work to great effect.

This translation of a masterpiece into a graphic novel is just as valuable as it’s translation into English four hundred years earlier.

Double Thumbs Up!

3.0 out of 5 stars It could have been more, but No Thumbs today., 19 Jun. 2015
Oh dear god it’s awful! Please make it stop. These aren’t the things you should be saying when reading something you enjoy. Maybe it is time to stop.

There are two stories here and the first appears to confuse Lara Croft with James Bond. It is dire and the twist at the end is poor indeed.

The second tries a lot harder. Lara becomes a little more vulnerable and human and we see some competent storytelling daring to emerge.

The art is typical of the previous books and where there are lots attempts to inject motion and excitement onto the page many of these don’t work. The lettering also has spelling mistakes. Yes that’s plural.

The fact that Eidos and Core would put their names to something like this is also a travesty.

It could have been more, but No Thumbs today.

Blacksad( Amarillo)[BLACKSAD AMARILLO][Hardcover]
by uanDiazCanales
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up!, 19 Jun. 2015
Here is another eagerly anticipated tale of our favourite feline detective. It starts with a great hook but ends up in an unexpected direction. Blacksad isn’t the star of the show here either but we do see a glimpse into his past and his family.

The art as always is superb, faultlessly complimenting the genre and showing noir is perfectly at home in the daylight. The hand-painted look does everything that lumbering blocks of digital colour cant. Everything feels so organic and so tangible. From wonderful landscapes and an epic cover to feminine felines it is spot on. The 1950’s setting is also captured wonderfully with rich detailed backgrounds.

It is over too quickly but ends perfectly.

Thumbs Up!
