Asterios Polyp

fixed cos some guy got mad:

A page from David Mazzucchelli’s critically celebrated Asterios Polyp (2009). One in which Asterios remembers the good, bad, and mundane moments from his marriage to Hana.

I think it’s the best drawn comic I’ve ever read, but the overall thing left me cold. I’m not sure why that is, as looking back at pages like this I remember how incredible it could be.



I expected a little more intensity, but pfft, never mind, it’s me, it’s bad, it’s a tick. Good choice, right after Preacher. I’m still all buts about that ending.

Country’s being ravaged by a monster typhoon.

This is a lovely sequence.
