Editorial Reviews

'Where did this man come from? [... ] lines so delicate they're like hairs that have dropped onto a scanner from above. Who knew making a series of pictures in navy triangles and circles could be so beautiful?' - It's Nice ThatWe often expect comics to tell us the stories of adventures. Alexis Beauclair does eprecisely this and nothing else, but his work extends, synthesizes, crystallizes, refines and intensifies this tradition. "Action" is the watchword of his narratives, which follow the path of looking and the stages of perception to reconstitute the movement of an intelligence. Alexis Beauclair's comics tell us the story of the adventure of drawing. And (almost) nothing else." - Laurent Bruel, Editions Matiere"Alexis Beauclair's minimalism makes generous play of the act of reading comics. Recalling the lively abstract animation of Viking Eggeling, Oskar Fischinger, and Al Jarnow, Beauclair's formalism is intellectual but never academic. His precise, linear images reveal themselves to be shaded with humor and humanity in their juxtaposition and arrangement." - Bill Kartalopoulos, Series Editor for the #1 New York Times best selling Best American Comics series "
