McKean is back...

Recommended Posts

it's been out for a while over here now and while it's stunning looking, there's hardly any story to it. It's not Cages or anything remotely like that. And don't get your hopes up in the comic department. I know Dark Horse is working on another short comics collection from him, but he's mostly working on movies (no new signs yet of the Cages movie).

Really? So he published it in Europe first?

 

And I thought I read somewhere he was working on more comics, but that would most likely be that short story collection you mentioned.

Yeah, it was published simultaneously in France, The Netherlands and Italy, I think. and you could just import the french version, the whole book doesn't feature a single line of dialogue.

Hah, fun. Kinda like Peter Kuper's System (or "Il Sistema", as it says in my copy).

it's mostly one or two page spreads, and it's artsy erotica. some might call it porn, but I didn't find it particularly exciting. beautiful artwork though!

Oh, yeah, I'm not a fan of that. I consider it a waste of money.

I really enjoy Kuper, because of his work on WWIII Illustrated, but I passed on The System because of it being wordless.

Even though I do love certain artists, like McKean.

 

Are they really planning to make a movie of Cages? Is that even possible? It doesn't seem like it'd work as anything other than a comic book.

McKean himself said he was making a CAges movie, so at least it should look like the GN...

 

I thought The System was rather excellent, Peter Kuper's wordless stuff is just great (btw, Rogan, if you want more wordless social commentary comics I suggest checking out the excellent if very depressing books of Ivan Brun, especially No Comment). I don't see how you could equate wordless with a waste of money. it all depends on what the artist does with it. Some of Moebius best stuff is completely wordless after all.

I'll check out his work. I also liked the beautiful (and wordless) The Arrival by Shaun Tan. And that Jason fella has a very low word count, but boy are his comics moving.
