Translate this! Greg Shaw’s Travelling Square District

The French zine du9 has a review up of Greg Shaw’s Travelling Square District, which is making me really, really want to read it. Published by the Belgian house Editions Sarbacane, it seems to be a riff on the endless canvas notion of comics: The cover shows a panoramic view of a big city, and each interior page zooms in to show a close-up of one tiny piece of action. The structure seems to be a bit more complicated than that; du9 compares it to Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, and the other reviews I have seen (mostly in French) all touch on the comic’s theatrical aspects. The Belgian Comic Strip Center in Brussels (hey, for the first time in my life, I want to go to Brussels!) just did an exhibit based on the book. It’s a great concept, and I hope someone brings it over here soon.
