Description

In Asterios Polyp—the best of the summer’s new releases—Mazzucchelli employs spotlights, coloring schemes, knitting, Aristophanes, an identical twin who died at birth and the wide array of secretions from a woman’s body to lead us into the self-centered world of the title character even as the center implodes…. It seems like Asterio's problems with putting things into tidy either/or boxes is also an extension of David Mazzucchelli's same impulse. Asterios Polyp is a fast, fun read, but it's also a work that has been carefully wrought to take optimum advantage of comics' hybrid nature -- it's a tale that could only be told on the knife-edge where text and art come seamlessly together. Hikaye geçişlerindeki renk kurguları, hikayenin zamansal olarak sadece karelere bölünmüş bir şekilde yaşatılmaması da diğer bir güzelliği.

This brazenly original and complex work is easily one of the year's best novels, graphic or otherwise. Asterios, proprio come Elvis Presley, ha un fratello gemello morto alla nascita, Ignacio, di cui scopre l’esistenza solo molti anni dopo. Asterios Polyp is a fast, fun read, but it's also a work that has been carefully wrought to take optimum advantage of comics' hybrid nature--it's a tale that could only be told on the knife-edge where text and art come seamlessly together. In fact, so occasionally powerful is his use of colour that I worry for colourblind readers, that they might miss out on some of the book's more sublime moments. Você entenderá a história (ou não) e relendo pela segunda vez, você começará a perceber a metalinguagem utilizada, em como arte e quadrinho se mesclam e uma utiliza da outra para efeito narrativo.He is an architecture professor, but a "paper architect," meaning that none of his designs have ever been built. In Asterios Polyp -- the best of the summer's new releases -- Mazzucchelli employs spotlights, coloring schemes, knitting, Aristophanes, an identical twin who died at birth and the wide array of secretions from a woman's body to lead us into the self-centered world of the title character even as the center implodes. A primeira coisa que você deve saber a respeito desse livro é: É uma das obras fundamentais dos quadrinhos. quando inizia a dedicarsi a questa sua prima graphic novel, per realizzare la quale impiegherà dieci anni. The book is a satirical comedy of remarriage, a treatise on aesthetics and design and ontology, a late-life Künstlerroman , a Novel of Ideas with two capital letters, and just about the most schematic work of fiction this side of that other big book that constantly alludes to the ­"Odyssey.

It's a sweeping, provocative book that blends the richness of the traditional novel with the best modern art.

Solo che Mazzucchelli è il Thomas Pynchon del fumetto: ergo, sa trasformare una storia già nota in un’avventura unica.

A edição é padrão Pantheon, capa dura de material reciclado, (até a sobrecapa possui relação com a estética do livro) tudo combinado e que conversa com a obra. Asterios Polyp will cause comic-book buffs to swoon, sure, but the narrative—after a fire, an arrogant architect slowly begins to rebuild his own life—makes it much more than a pretty picture book. De todas formas, y aunque la historia me ha quedado un poco en un segundo plano, me ha gustado mucho el personaje de Asterios, la genial Ursula, la ironía que utiliza. Why would anyone want to make such a well crafted and carefully thought through graphic novel about an architect struggling with his preconceptions on the nature of duality? I get that part of conversing in general is the act of sharing, but not to the level of attention-grabbing and narcissism.Sort of like Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth meets a way more formally sophisticated The Elegance of the Hedgehog, spiked with references to the Odyssey, apparently (so sayeth the blurbs I just read). We are led to believe that due to Asterios' inattention at his wife, she is falling for this dirty scumbag. Ryder from Ishiguro's The Unconsoled, a man at the top of his rarefied field who still must learn to grow up.

Man mano, lungo il suo road trip, rinuncerà a ciascuno di questi oggetti, se ne libererà donandoli, completerà lo smantellamento dell’armatura esistenziale che lo ha protetto (ma anche isolato) fin qui, alleggerendosi e riuscendo finalmente a venire a patti col lato pratico delle cose, e quindi della vita. Numa primeira leitura, você provavelmente não vai pegar todas as referências, porque é provavelmente impossível. Ha altresì, come sappiamo una personalissima ossessione per i doppi che dà forma alle ricerche intellettuali del suo pensiero cosciente . Really beautiful, smart and heart-touching story of an architecture professor who, when he is 50, learns better.Hay pequeños detalles de guión que resultan simplones, pero el resto es un despliegue que invita a ser disfrutado en futuras relecturas. The visual style used to contrast the small-town escape from his previously elite life are what you'd expect: curves, visual ellipses, and informal open-framed illustration versus squares, cubes, angles, and tight frame composition. And we meet a sweet, smart, first-generation Japanese American artist with whom he had made a blissful life. I was completely blown away by Asterios Polyp, David Mazzucchelli's latest comic book, a pull-out-all-the-stops package that's funny, poignant and deep, with panels of thoughtfully shaded images that form a visual novel, a paper movie, and finally, an existential meditation on things that matter to us: religion, art, science, love and memory. Ma ciò che davvero libera questo graphic novel dall’occludente severità del formalismo è il modo canzonatorio e dirompente con cui Mazzecchelli affronta la questione dei sistemi e delle astrazioni (di ogni tipo).
