Here is to graphic novels what Baraka is to film. This book is more like performance art than a story, but at the same time it does tell a story - one that you read on a deeper level than the normal consumption of words that occurs with a book. Or maybe it is more like visual poetry. It is unique and difficult to pin down, but it is lovely. ( )

Series Info/Source: This is a stand alone book. I got a copy of this book as a gift for my birthday.

Thoughts: This is basically the story of a certain place. For much of the book it is a particular room in a house (the family room) but the graphic novel also ventures into times before the house was built and after the house was destroyed. Each page shows you the year and as the book goes on sometimes there are small panels from many different years inserted throughout. The drawing itself is very well done in beautiful muted colors and I enjoyed it.

If I was a more careful reader I would probably try and follow all of the different timelines more closely. The book jumps willy nilly between timeframes and as I said, sometimes many timelines are overlapping. Sometimes I think things are shown overlapped to show how similar people’s actions are across many decades. I also appreciated the statement the book made about how short the timeframe of humanity’s existence has been and how big of an impact humanity has had on its environment.

This was a very quick but very creative read and I enjoyed it. I did think that the book got a bit too chaotic for me at points and I struggled to keep all the different stories from different timeframes straight as we jumped in and out of them. I guess I would have liked this to be a bit more linear, but I do appreciate the art and storytelling that went into super-imposing all these images within each other.

My Summary (4/5): Overall I enjoyed this and would recommend it. It was a graphic novel I can see myself re-reading a few times because I think I will pick up on new things each time I read it. I loved the idea behind it and enjoyed the art style. However, I did find it a bit confusing to keep track of all the timelines. The fact that panels from one time are inserted into panels from another time can be a bit hard to follow. If you are intrigued by graphic novels that push the art style of graphic novels and tell a story in a new creative way I would definitely recommend this. ( )

Une bande dessinée très très high-concept : chaque double-page représente le même endroit, vu selon le même point de vue et le même angle de vue au cours de plusieurs centaines de millions d'années (sur une période aussi longue, la définition de "même endroit" pose de sérieux problèmes, que McGuire élude), et plus particulièrement des quelques centaines d'années où des humains l'ont fréquenté, entre 1500 et 2300. Les illustrations avant et après l'homme (on reconnaît au passage le reedstilt de Douglas Dixon), restent somme toute anecdotique.

Vers 1500, l'endroit était une forêt où des Indiens d'Amérique venaient chasser et copuler ; vers 1700, le jardin d'une demeure palatiale ; au vingtième siècle et au début du vingt-et-unième, un pavillon où de nombreux habitants se succèdent ; et dans le futur, une sorte de musée. Tout cela est démantibulé, car non seulement les époques sont présentées dans le désordre, mais au sein d'une même pages plusieurs époques cohabitent généralement, via des cases séparées qui montrent différentes partie de l'endroit à différentes époques. Pas de récit, ou peu : les situations sont pour la plupart des instants isolés, éternellement immobiles, un peu comme les vignettes de La vie mode d'emploi.

Entre les scènes qui se succèdent et se superposent, un jeu complexe d'échos et de contrastes s'élabore. Intéressant, mais très très high-concept. ( )

Interesting and really nice artwork. I can see why people love this, but ultimately it just didn't have enough for me. I wanted more story, more cohesion, more to dig into. It just left me feeling a little unsatisfied. The panels all,work together and there were pages where I notice a slight build of emotion but it never gelled enough in the end. ( )

I tend to think of it as a comics truism that the shorter way is always, always the best way to tell a story, but maybe Here, six pages that became hundreds, is the exception that proves the rule. By patiently teasing out a more or less complete historical and poetic context for the patch of land he sets his story down on, returning to characters and scenes again and again while simultaneously showing us the circumstances that brought them forth, McGuire transcends the quick, “gotcha!” feel of the original short and turns a formal exercise into something as rich with character and anecdote and forward motion as any more traditional novel.
