As ever, Mazzucchelli keeps both the visual and storytelling fireworks coming…This is a work that demands to be read, re-read, analyzed, and discussed. We are led to believe that due to Asterios' inattention at his wife, she is falling for this dirty scumbag. Perennials PERENNIALS constant friends A selection of novels, memoirs and more by some of our favourite authors. The rows in the middle tell a consistent, simple story, wherein Hana has lost the puff of a Q-tip inside her ear, and has a mild panic until Asterios removes it with a tweezer. Asterios Polyp is his first graphic novel, and has won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and been listed as a New York Times notable book.

because i wanted to make the amazing experience of read and "taste" it last as long as i could, now that i've end it . Mazzucchelli lo disegna con il cranio che sembra un rostro (di una nave, ma anche un qualche tipo di lama) e sembra la testa adatta al tagliente sarcasmo che Asterios sfoggia e adopra per segnare e sottolineare il suo distacco. A simpler concept in theory than in execution, but Asterios Polyp shows exactly why it's worth thinking about. Meet Asterios middle-aged, meagerly successful architect and teacher, aesthete and womanizer, whose life is wholly upended when his New York City apartment goes up in flames.What's amazing about this graphic novel is that it is jam-packed with ideas, but most of the ideas are embedded in the art itself, and not in the words (some of it is in words, but it's like a riff that plays along with the visuals). And one day, you lose the one, be it by tragedy or negligence or even choice and suddenly the walls collapse and you come to the realization that what you thought you knew was actually a pile of crap on a hot, summer day.

A primeira coisa que você deve saber a respeito desse livro é: É uma das obras fundamentais dos quadrinhos.

Asterios Polyp es un arquitecto reputado de 50 años, aunque ninguno de sus diseños ha sido nunca ejecutado, porque su fama viene de su tarea como profesor. On top of Mazzucchelli's tight reign over his colour spectrum, there is ample evidence that he maintains the same level of control over his linework and design.Mazzucchelli has populated this book with a varied cast: narcissistic (and often insufferable) egomaniacs; a neglected beauty taken mostly for granted; a plain, hard-workin’ mechanic who drops many a Norm Crosbyesque malopropism and many more. 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. The narrative comes back to earth for a profoundly satisfying climax, but you'll want to keep turning pages--all the way back to the beginning, for another read.

This brazenly original and complex work is easily one of the year’s best novels, graphic or otherwise…Brilliant. This turns out to be a running motif, and later, during Asterios and Hana's first meeting, his blue outlines begin to fill with pink haze, and her pink shadows become outlined in blue, until they both have nearly the same appearance. The battle between geometric and organic shapes gives the reader (who may not be familiar with all the names and ideas Asterios or his ghostly narrator reference) a hook on which to hang the interpreter's hat.Asterios Polyp is his first graphic novel, and has won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and been listed as a New York Times notable book. It is a testament to how distancing the story is that at the end, when the asteroid destroys everyone (itself a pretty immature narrative device), I didn't feel shocked or anything. Remarkables REMARKABLES Intriguing, stunning, or otherwise remarkable books These include fine editions, foreign publications exceptional for their interest or production, special editions and some first-rate books from very small publishers. Asterios Polyp is a primer for both the fervent possibilities and the rich rewards of the graphic novel.
