Brais Rodríguez Verde, nom sei se mais Cortázar ou Laplace (e eu adoro Laplace mais do que Cortázar).
Diego Blanco, algo de Frans Masereel, algo de Walt Disney of Late Capitalism. Genial como sempre.
Brais Rodríguez Verde must be right now one of the best comic creators alive and active in the whole wide world. His self-published work (“Sombra”, “Reptil”, “La chica con el sol en la cabeza”, “Un esplendor nervioso”, etc.) is so good he doesn’t need a publisher.
This is the real thing.
This is why comics can be awesome.
Triggering a dreamlike small universe in motion, Brais Rodríguez builds a story filled with symbolisms both as hypnotic as open to interpretation. A raw 3x3 layout and some of the slickest black and white art he’s ever delivered (which is a lot to say) set up this book you’ll want to read again in the years to come. Utterly inspiring and fascinating.
A man begins a journey as the world shivers in silence: an overcoming shadow or an overcoming shade?
Just out of print as it sold out its first run. I’m sure we can expect a new printing soon.
