really liked it
Read in November, 2009

Really beautiful, smart and heart-touching story of an architecture professor who, when he is 50, learns better.

It ought to be a five star review, but I kept feeling like the moment the whole thing came together it would be one of the best graphic novels anyone had ever done and one of the finest stories ever told... and it reached the end and left me feeling that had it all come together - perhaps had it been much longer - it would have been amazing, and as it was it was simply astonishingly good...

Jacobmartin I bought Asterios Polyp myself today as a Christmas gift from Santa, it's kind of like your own Sandman in a way that the only person left in the family who believes in Santa grows old and becomes him, in that fairy-tale sort of way.

I really like the art style of this and the minimalist colouring really brings out the highlights that the reader is meant to take notice of, but I won't get to read the rest of it until Christmas.

Tine! Ok, yes - basically, ditto. Now I don't have to write a review, woo hoo!
