ROHAN AT THE LOUVRE Has The Web Buzzing

Our latest volume of the Louvre series, Rohan at the Louvre by Hirohiko Araki has garnered quite a bit of attention.  Here are some of the latest reviews:

“A highly effective horror story, of the sort that will be familiar and welcome to fans of 21st century J-horror. Araki has a strong sense of design that leans hard and far away from the direction of what comes to the casual manga reader’s mind when they hear the word “manga,” and the panels are all big and rich in detail in a way that suggests European rather than Japanese comics art.”

“Everything here works; the art is lovely, the colors are striking, the story is interesting, and the presentation (hardcover and in proper right-to-left format) is excellent. The Louvre series continues to be absolutely magic for readers.”

Comics Waiting Room

“It’s a neat comic… a nice chance to see manga art in color, which is a rarity, at least for work that has been translated into English. It also seems like a good sample of Araki’s work, something that might point readers toward his other stuff, with expectations of nonsensical craziness and eccentric art, and the feeling that anything can, and probably will, happen.”

Warren Peace Sings the Blues

“An imaginative celebration of the Louvre Museum, conveying its scale, age, and majesty. Araki’s book is one of the most dramatically satisfying, achieving a near-perfect balance between telling a ghost story and telling the Louvre’s own story.”
