Ana karakterin ''paper architect'' oluşu ve bununla ilerleyen hayatını sorgulama sekansları ile ilerleyen hikayesi, mimarlık adına da iyi bir kaynak. But it's that brilliant kind of complex which can be enjoyed on many levels, like Lolita, say, or The Metamorphosis, where, if you'd like, you can derive great enjoyment from the story on the surface, without doing a whole lot of delving.

Given all this, I still don't think it is justification enough for such an ending, because it really does make the whole book too obviously about ideas and ideas alone. Early on, during an aside, Mazzucchelli presents a random group of people, each drawn in a different style and color, as a visual representation of how unique every person is. 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. Asterios, ci viene detto, ha un’incontenibile fascinazione per le astrazioni, in particolare per gli equilibri, i contrappesi, la dialettica e l’analisi lineare dello spazio. Hana as a distinct person fades into a blurred red approximation of herself while Asterios finds himself segmented into his constituent shapes, his arms jointed cylinders, his torso and head crude blocks.What Mazzucchelli accomplishes, though, with remarkable clarity and a jazzy pop-culture eye, and which the written word has a tougher time with, is portraying silence, moments between something said and something to come -- even thought itself.

Questa storia è narrata dal gemello morto col quale Asterios tende qua e là a sovrapporsi, identificarsi, scambiarsi. The book is such a pleasure to read, filled with so many wide open panels, so much white space, you will feel like you are standing on top of the Pyrenees. At times the characters seem very real (the dialogue is well written, and the bodily gestures are so well drawn, just spot on! 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.

Vol van zijn eigen intellectuele vermogens en zekerheden verkondigt hij nietsontziend zijn visie op het leven. A simpler concept in theory than in execution, but Asterios Polyp shows exactly why it's worth thinking about.

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. Dopo la separazione, alla soglia dei cinquanta anni, la sua vita perde altri pezzi: anzi, va letteralmente in pezzi la notte in cui il suo appartamento prende fuoco e dall’incendio riesce a recuperare solo tre oggetti, un accendino, un orologio, un coltellino svizzero.Now, after a decade-and-a-half, he has re-re-emerged with Asterios Polyp , an epic, emotionally rich, symbol-laden work that promises to redefine the graphic novel. And we meet Hana: a sweet, smart, first-generation Japanese American artist with whom he had made a blissful life. Asterios Polyp is, believe it or not, the main character's name - a brilliant professor of architecture who is re-examining his life after losing his wife due to his own self-absorption. Es un hombre cínico, egocéntrico, esnob, práctico y materialista que no da importancia a lo que tiene.

Also: this is my second review for CCLaP, and my first in a year-long series reviewing graphic novels. And we meet a sweet, smart, first-generation Japanese American artist with whom he had made a blissful life. El segundo es una ensoñación muda que recrea el mito de Orfeo y Eurídice desde una perspectiva moderna. Meet Asterios Polyp: middle-aged architect and teacher, aesthete and womanizer, whose life is wholly upended when he moves to a small town in America's heartland after his New York City apartment goes up in flames. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.It is rich in glorious meditation, comedy, irony and romance, weaving deep questions of binary opposites, architectural philosophy, life-the universe-and-everything around a dissolving relationship story. Then a blinding flash of lightning illuminates the entire page, and we see that Asterios's building has caught fire. The narrative structure is framed by the new more humble life he has set out to claim after his Manhattan apartment went up in flames, as we get his pre-disaster life through flashbacks.
