On the Odd Hours reviewed

First of all, Booklist says of this new book out now in our Louvre collection:

“Virtuosically rendered by Liberge, who merges elegant clear-line
figuration, expressionistic pastel coloration, and in the odd-hours sequences, superimposition effects, Bastien’s story powerfully expresses the irrepressible life of great art.”

Comics Worth Reading adds, after a few reservations:

“Yet I was left impressed by how well comics worked to tell the story of a deaf man. Illustrated sign language is perfect for the format. It reinforces the lack of sound, making it something in itself, to exploit and manipulate, instead of a characteristic of the medium covered up by lettering effects. When his girlfriend argues with him, images spill around her as her hands gesture at him and captions explain what she’s communicating.”

After that, in this piece covering also our Joe & Azat and Year of Loving Dangerously, she is less kind on those.
