Asterios Polyp by David Mazzucchelli surely deserves an extensive review, as it is that stunning and that important of a comic book work.
But I don’t have the time right now to give it the kind of review it deserves. The book is insanely rich in imagery and references – if you thought Alan Moore put tons of little references into his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen work, well, you’d be right, as he does, but Mazzucchelli is right there with him with this project. But unlike Moore’s denser works, the story is extremely simple to follow even if you miss ALL the dozens and dozens of little allusions and references.
So anyhow, I thought it was a shame that we did not have a place here where people could discuss their thoughts about this great work, so, well, I created this!
Let me know what you thought about it – I’d love to hear from you all (I believe Burgas is going to have a review up eventually, but I can’t wait, consarnit!)!!
