The Spectators

The Spectators What If We Are Merely Shadows, Our Characters Defined By A Simple Inflection Of Light The Realm Of Possibilities Opens Up, Because In Our World We Are Nothing But Spectators.The Spectators Unfolds As A Poetic And Philosophical Introspection On The Nature Of Man Victor Hussenot S Palette Is Awash With Subtle Colour, Gently Carrying The Narrative And Allowing The Reader To Envelop Themselves In The Lyricism Of The Work Reminiscent Of French New Wave Cinema With Its Clipped Dialogue, Gentle Pacing And Departure From A Classic Narrative Structure, The Spectators Is An Exciting New Graphic Novel. Hussenot s meditation on urban existence Lovely watercolor artwork somewhat reminiscent of Belgian Brecht Evens s work Eschewing narrative for a series of journalist questions and thoughts I liked the look of it, and individual pages are great, but I thought the whole of it didn t add up to much Not deeply philosophical Maybe the point is we all see things differently Or change is constant every time you get on a subway car there are different configurations of people Gorgeous ar
This was interesting, but a bit disappointing Perhaps my expectations were too high It s sort of a meditation on points of view and humanity and continuity That makes it all sound a bit grand, but it s not a deep and rigorous journey arriving at startling insights so much as it is idly musing and drifting, the sort of thoughts one has while taking an evening walk and or gazing up a
We live together in cities, pressed against strangers on subways and park benches and sidewalks, yet each person s experience is completely unique What is the nature of reality if each spectator interprets it differently Hussenot s latest book, a ethereal collection of philosophical musings, investigates this concept with sparse, poetic text and dreamy watercolor illustrations Like the Belgian cartoonist Brecht Evens, Hussenot s use of color adds layers of meaning to the images His vibrant characters change their selves like a wardrobe a woman sheds her skin and becomes a man, a man sheds his and becomes a boy, and they wander the ever changing Parisian streets at dawn or dusk when the edges of the world are blurriest Each of us sees the city in our own way, from the rift between sleep and waking bursts of light, Hussenot writes The mind s eye is set free The invisible is r
French existentialism in a watercolor dream. The prettiest existential crisis I ve ever seen. This is a graphic novel that is of an artbook with words narrating the art This work doesn t have a plot, it s an unstructured illustration of how the world around us is just a projection of the light coming out of our eyes From what I understood, it s an illusion There s a black shadow, or what I would inter
Beautiful book. A arte segura essa HQ quase sozinha uma hist ria existencialista sobre pessoas e cidades, mas o que impressiona mesmo s o os pain is em aquarela, diferentes de quase tudo que j vi em HQ Uma edi o lind ssima. This is quite unique graphic novel comic It is philosophical contemplation of human existence, or nature of man.Author asks questions, and gives provoking thoughts But every reader may take it in different way, since we all see things differently Everything around us changes, and we as spectators may pay attention to one thing, while a person next to us to something different We can be in the same subway car every day and we may see the same people, or new faces And as circle of life, even the thing that change, actually repeat We are kids, than adults, than old people When we vanish, the circle repeats, because our kids become adults, than old, than they vanish We only see the changes in friends and family, while the strangers we encounter in our lives, seem timeless, forever fixed in their roles The art in the novel is different from what I am used to The illustrations are watercolor art It is beautiful and lovely artwork.I enjoyed this novel a lot, even though it reads lik
This is a funny yet introspective examination on the nature of humans The book is filled with bright colors and scenes that require a second thought as readers ponder all the things they might mean There are seemingly random encounters that turn out to be significant, and scenes showing the drama that goes on behind lighted windows, an ever changing play that req
