"Her heartbeat... It was pounding so loud... I wanted to touch it with my own hands..."

Immensely beautiful and very, very poorly written, Heartbeat sees Maria Llovet - the person behind the amazing art on Faithless - flex her writing skills. Now, it seems that this was originally published in 2015 so, hopefully, she's grown as a writer since then because damn this is pretty weak. It's like a teenage fantasy of a person that read Aku No Hana and scrolled through too many goth-girl Tumblr accounts - bloody, edgy, and wholly laughable. From blood drinking to incest to steamy sex scen ...more

Un cómic un tanto creepy pero que no tiene desperdicio alguno. Además, aunque pueda pasar desapercibido a primeras, la historia tiene una gran crítica social y apunta hacia algunos de los grandes problemas -la violencia machista-.

María Llovet apunta por hacerlo de una manera más original al meter efectos paranormales a la historia, pero que honestamente creo que lo que hacen es -aunque pueda parecer raro- darle más credibilidad al camuflar esa crítica en una historia a mí parecer un tanto insípi
it feels weird to give this graphic novel 4 stars because the content in this one is disturbing, so i don't know if i can say that i enjoyed it.
but it was... something else. it's like a train wreck you can't look away from.

Looking for something to vary the mood over this last tedious year, we've watched a fair amount of disreputable European cinema – French lesbian vampire films of which, despite its name, the BFI Player seems to have an inexhaustible supply; the astonishing amount of giallo which Amazon seems to have bulk-bought to up Prime's numbers. Very, very rarely does it live up to its scandalous promise; too often, the effects are risible and the actors - especially, and understandably, the actresses – are ...more

Adore the art, the grotesque of this short little gem. Knocked a star because I'm peeved when the main character of an artist look the same in other works (Faithless). ...more
Should come with a gigantic trigger warning across the cover.

S tímhle mám velký problém, na jednu stranu je to nádherně kreslený školní psychologické drama o psychických problémech a jak se vlastně sami ničíme. Což autorka řeší skrze poměrně čtivé, ale někdy matoucí monology hlavní hrdinky.

Na stranu druhou to je ale zase klasický teen cringe, kdy se hrdinka Eva zamiluje do psychouše kterého uvidí zavraždit její spolužačku. A prakticky to celé je o tom jak ho chce a ví že je to špatně. Takže je tu prostě masturbace, sex a vše to působí stylem, že na tohle

3 estrellas.

Esta novela gráfica ya desde la sinopsis prometía ser sangrienta y retorcida. Y lo fue. Va sobre una chica que descubre que el chico más popular de la escuela es un asesino al que le gusta el sabor de la sangre... y ella se siente intrigada por su red macabra. Obviamente, no es para el todo el mundo, y mi recomendación es que lean la sinopsis y vean qué les parece. Lo que sí me hubiera gustado es que fuese un poco más larga, para que la trama tuviese un desarrollo menos apresurado.

Very cool. 4 stars for the art, very detailed, good sense of "cinematography," architecture, design and color. The story really wasn't there for me, felt like it needed more issues. Never been a big fan of the highschool/private school genre. Would love to see more stories set in the same place of Japaris or wherever it was. Has a dreamy vibe, more of an "ambient" comic, really appreciated the "pillow panels." A fast read, maybe too fast and may have missed some subtext. Some similarities to Fai ...more

Una Maria Llovet curata, colori evocativi e una storia drammaticamente poetica.
Un'immersione nelle perversioni, nei dubbi e nelle paure adolescenziali esasperate fra sangue e sensualità.
La ricerca dell'Io e del proprio posto nel mondo diventa un viaggio attraverso dubbi e porte che vanno via via chiudendosi. Heartbeat diventa un fumetto di crescita e formazione che ho letto con enorme piacere.

Maria Llovet es una artista increíble, con los detalles que hace en cada viñeta, con unos diseños que destruyen tus retinas y un cariño en cada pagina que te quita el aliento, así que agradezco a la autora poner esta obra gratis en la pagina de Norma editorial para e que la quiera leer.

De beaux dessins mélange de manga et art nouveau. Mais c'est nul. Histoire pourrie, vide, inintéressante. Personnages sans intérêt. Le pompon étant atteint avec les pages bonus "vestiaire" qui en fait donne le ton du bouquin: "L'histoire on s'en fout ! De beeeeaux dessins et des fringues cool et du saaang et du cul ! C'est trop gooooth !"
Bref. Nul.

I don't even know what to say here. It was kind of rambling. For a first issue you need something a bit more punchy and self contained to draw the reader into picking up the next few issues. It didn't make me want to pick up the next ones, even if it was well illustrated. ...more

Absolutely stunning art! I really enjoyed the storyline and sensuality throughout. One of my favourites of Maria Llovets comics.

Muy buenas ilustraciones, con mucho detalle.
La historia tiene un buen trasfondo, pero objetivamente es un tanto creepy y algo apresurada.

Tiene una estética manga muy conseguida y solo por el dibujo ya merecería la pena, pero no he entrado en la historia.

Heartbeat (2016)

Il fantastico stile di disegno di questa autrice è stato una scoperta, un misto di manga e art nouveau incredibile (mi è piaciuto moltissimo anche il modo in cui sono indicate le onomatopee). La trama è disturbante per alcuni versi e in alcuni punti avrebbe richiesto degli approfondimenti maggiori, anche se rende molto bene la sensazione di solitudine e le dinamiche del bullismo

La trama en si no ha sido algo arrolladora para mi. Pero, el estilo del arte y las ilustraciones eran hermosas; podría haberme quedado horas mirandolas.

A parte, la edición está muy cuidada, y es un gran detalle el añadido del "print".
