Jimmy Corrigan a Comics (juliol 2007)

Ressenyes

A dense work which really deserves the 'graphic novel' moniker. It focuses on the lives of several lonely teachers and students at a small school in Omaha, Nebraska. Ware uses elaborate panel construction to show multifaceted stories. The one about school bully and slacker Jordan Lint showed his entire life. Other stories tackle a painfully shy man whose first sexual experience is shaped by a rather crazy woman, and a teacher who endures regular racism at the school. Just like a modern novel, the book ends(?) ambiguously. I felt it dived quite deeply into its protagonists. I was annoyed by the regular use of very small text, though I didn't mind the micro-panels.… (més)

A $50 box of longing, mortality, and regret, to quote Kevin Guilfoile's apt commentary in the Tournament of Books. It's a heavily visual collection of 14 pieces that make up this work which mostly shows us the life of a lonely, insecure, perpetually unsatisfied, slightly overweight woman. Other main characters are the unhappy married couple living below her, the unhappy elderly woman who owns the titular building they all live in, and bizarrely, a bee who just doesn't fit in.

I lack the patience/interest to spend a lot of time examining the artwork in the panels of graphic novels; I want to speed on ahead to the next chunk of text. I must have a bias for words. Thus my favorite graphic novel I've read (not that I've read all that many) is Persepolis, in which I think the artwork plays a much smaller second fiddle to the star turn of the text. In Building Stories, the visuals demand at least equal consideration, maybe greater.

I think I disagree with most when I say I did not find splitting the story into 14 pieces of varying size, from pamphlet to newspaper to novella, to be a charming feature. I would have preferred a single, standard sized bound book. What a hidebound traditionalist I turn out to be.

It was engaging, but confusing and hard to read at times. The story was also a lot more realistic than I expected for a series of comics.

Simply brilliant, perhaps the apex of the form.
