Cross posted from Amazon:

I'll admit it, I came into this book with high expectations. The title alone sounded powerful and gave such great expectations, "Korea as viewed by 12 creators." I could only imagine what creativity would be found within these pages as artists sought to describe this somewhat hidden country via their art. The book's premise is that 12 different artists, a mix of French and Korean, created 12 different short works about Korea, which would showcase how different people vie

Fiuuuu!! Me esperaba bastante bastante más. Fue lo único que encontré de Corea en la última edición del Salón del Manga de Barcelona y tuve que llevármelo a casa sí o sí. ¡Y no me digáis que la portada no es arrebatadora! Total, que me llevé este libro todo contenta sabiendo que en él iban 12 cómics con distintas visiones del país.

Por parte de los franceses la visión se me queda en lo superficia

Interesante forma de conocer otra cultura. Doce autores - unos franceses, otros coreanos - intentan reflejar en cada historia parte de la esencia del país de la mañana tranquila. También conocido como Corea xD

Mi favorita: "Una rata en el país del Yonk" de Hervé Tanquerelle, sin duda :D. Demuestra como se narra sin necesidad de palabras, además de ser original ^^

i really enjoyed all the artistic styles and the peeks into the culture. the stories are, of course, short since there are 12, but they're all incredibly different and the art is beautiful. i'm extremely glad i bought it.

This is a collection of sketches by graphic novelists/cartoonists from Western and Korean backgrounds. Having lived in Seoul, it was fun to read the sketches that really portrayed the cultural differences and that showed specific places in Seoul as it brought back memories.

Me ha gustado porque, entre otras cosas, he aprendido aspectos interesantes de la cultura y tradición coreanas. Y por la misma falta de conocimiento tengo la sensación de que no entendí el significado real de muchas de esas historias.

Riječ je o odličnom konceptu, koji ima slabu realizaciju. Isplati se pročitat zbog korejskih autora. Za detaljne informacije preporučam komentar Andrewa Shupinga.

This book provided an insightful look into the Korean culture. It contains stories of both modern and traditional Korea.

12 different short graphic strips about Korea. Most were well drawn and intriguing, but one or two were clunky and I didn't much care for the subject.
