Comme toujours, Tanigushi m'a fasciné. D'abord par son dessin. Et par son histoire ensuite. J'ai longtemps cru que l'histoire était entièrement vraie. L'histoire est un magnifique récit, ça ne ressemble pas une fiction.

Ein sehr ungewöhnlicher Manga / Graphic Novel. Ich habe noch nie einen Manga gelesen, der sich die Indianerkriege zum Thema nimmt und diese dann auch noch mit japanischer Samuraikunst vermischt. Und das auch noch äußerst gelungen.

Die Geschichte spielt zwischen 1869 - 1877 in den USA und handelt von den Indianerkriegen der Sioux, in dem Fall die Oglala, gegen die weißen Amerikaner. Das Thema wird sehr kritisch behandelt und man merkt deutlich, dass der Autor auf Seiten der Indianer steht.

Taniguchi démontre une fois de plus sa polyvalence par le fait qu'il est à l'aise avec une grande diversité de genres. Il poursuit son rapprochement avec la BD franco-belge en s'attaquant cette fois au western, un genre typiquement occidental.

Sky Hawk semble bien loin de l'humanisme et des déambulations introspectives du Journal de mon père ou Quartier Lointain. On y retrouve pourtant une des thématiques chères à Taniguchi: les vastes étendues de nature sauvage. En effet, Sky Hawk allie avec dex

Intriguing premise of having two Ronin immigrate to the Wild West and join the Native Americans against the white men. Beautiful black and white art and cool panel-flow make this a pageturner.

However, I do have to agree with reviewer Jan:

-The Natives are all depicted as holy people, while the White are evil, mustache-twirling 'I'm Gonna Kill Everyone' psychos

-No character development from anyone, especially not from the protagonists, who win EVERY gun battle with their Samurai swords (they don'

Between "ok" and "liked it."
The premise is interesting and the art is very pretty. However, the book is fairly short and the characters are quite flat. Nothing much happens actually. The reader probably knows it's heading towards Little Big Horn and it sure does. It gets there and...the book just ends.

It might be its length, but this manga is significantly more shallow than other historical ones I've read (like Historia or Vinland Saga). Characters don't really evolve, white men are always evil,

Velmi dobře pojaté. Komiks mě dokázal vtáhnout, hezky zpracovaná tématika indiánů vs bílí lidé (stavba železnice, snaha indiány odsunout do rezervací,...). Četlo se to hezky, svižně a ke konci jsem se divil, jak rychle jsem to přečetl :)

Bien, mais pour les ados. Un peu naïf au niveau du discours/dialogues pour des lecteurs adultes. Une excellente lecture jeunesse pour apprendre aux ados lecteurs ce qu'il s'est passé...

DNF at 45%. Beautiful art, and catchy premise, but as occurs sometimes, the storytelling and character progression aren't as good.
