David B. spent an idyllic early childhood in a small town near Orléans, France, but the family's life changed abruptly when his big brother Jean-Christophe was struck with epilepsy at age eleven. In search of a cure, their parents dragged the family to acupuncturists and magnetic therapists, to mediums and macrobiotic communes, but every new cure ended in disappointment. Angry at his brother for "abandoning" him and at all the quacks who offered them false hope, the author learned to cope by drawing fantastically elaborate battle scenes, creating images that provide a window into his interior life, as well as reliving his grandfathers' experiences in both World Wars through flashbacks. An honest and horrifying portrait of the disease and of the pain and fear it sowed in the family, this graphic autobiography is also a moving depiction of one family's intricate history.--From publisher description.… (més)

Narració en primera persona de l'evolució d'una malaltia viscuda en tercera persona.

La part gràfica m'ha semblat excel.lent. Es tracta d'un treball molt cuidat vinyeta a vinyeta, ple de detalls. La linea argumental és interessant i està ben desenvolupada, però algunes parts són excessivament llargues. Potser això es nota en aquesta edició integral que conté els sis volums en que aparegué publicada per primera vegada aquesta obra.
Recomenable. ( )

Illness may be of dubious use as metaphor, as Susan Sontag famously argued, but it's an even unlikelier theme for a comic book. By both origin and reputation, comics (or graphic novels, as one is now more or less obliged to call them) are the ultimate vessel of nerdy wish-fulfillment: blocky, oversaturated fantasy pieces in which everyday schmoes acquire superhuman powers and wreak righteous vengeance on their villainous tormentors.

David B's autobiographical Epileptic [368pp, Jonathan Cape, £16.99], on the other hand, is a staggeringly original work of real power. Its creator developed his cartooning style as a way to cope with his brother's debilitating illness. In his childhood bedroom, with Bach on the stereo, he would pour all his fear, aggression, sympathy and detachment into intricate comic strips.

A book with a title like Epileptic does not raise high expectations: will it be an account of suffering nobly borne, or a worthy medical treatise perhaps? Not a bit of it, this memoir is a graphics extravaganza spread over 361 pages, bursting with energy and wild imaginings, a comic tour de force that is as emotionally gut-wrenching as it is visually stunning.

To eviscerate, according to the OED , is "To take out the entrails of; to disembowel; to gut"; fishermen do it. Evisceration is also, of course, a familiar and often pretty fishy form of literary self-display, all the way from the Psalmist to Dave Pelzer - writing conceived of, produced and presented as a form of self-dismemberment or mutilation through which the writer saves him or herself from some real or imagined pain.

From childhood, French artist Pierre-François Beauchard had a firm hand on his demons, and was capable of channeling them into supportive and constructive channels. His hefty graphic-novel memoir Epileptic (initially released as the multi-volume French series L'Ascension Du Haut Mal, and published under his nom de plume, David B.) shows him as a child obsessed with war and death, and prone to seeing the world in terms of monsters and metaphors.

Please do not combine partial editions with the full edition of Epileptic. Partial volumes are not the same as an omnibus volume and are their own work. Please keep in mind that the French version comes in six volumes, where other language versions come in a two volume set when combining Volumes 1 and Volumes 2 together.
