Basically the story is told with no words, just pictures. Even where characters speak we just see pictures in their word bubbles. It's kind of hard to describe what it is about, but basically a woman is drawn into a world made up of movie cells and proceeds to have a variety of sexual experiences. That makes it sound pretty simple, but each scene with the woman is illustrated in a completely different style resulting in incredible imagery. You have this really abstract scene, a photo-realistic scene, one that looks painted, drawn with pencil, etc. Dave McKean illustrates beautifully, , so on a purely aesthetic level of how the art looks, I would say this is amazing. The mixed-media stuff is especially neat too, like when pictures of fruit or objects are incorporated onto the page's image.
|The start has a simple style of art, things get weird later.|
|This is one of the few pages I can show you that is safe for work and also awesome-looking.|
4 out of 5 stars.
