Helt enkelt Samuel

(Samuel #2)

3.39  ·  Rating details ·  77 ratings  ·  13 reviews
"Helt enkelt Samuel" är en stum serieroman och ett ymnighetshorn i serieform angående livet och hur det är att vara människa. Den oerhört rika boken byggs upp inför läsarens ögon som ett pussel av noveller och fristående bilder som fångar ögonblick.

Samuel är en blek, spöklik figur som vandrar runt i sin färgstarka värld som liknar vår egen. Eftersom han är osynlig för omgi

Think of this episodic graphic novel as the surreal escapades of a sperm-like heathen (part Bukowski, part Buster Keaton) traversing the colorful landscapes of Hell. Car crashes, ill-fated one-night stands, boozing with a decadent monkey, getting lost in landscapes with chain-smoking trolls. Not well-suited for those seeking story lines and clarity, this is purely aesthetic and trippy as fuck.

The art was bizarre, color-saturated and psychedelic. Unlike say, Jim Woodring, however, there was no story behind the craziness. I could definitely imagine the artist illustrating liner notes or concert posters for a trippy rock band.

I enjoy it, it was fun, nothing extremely remarkable with this one, for me at least, but it was okey.

I wish there was a little more here, but many of the stories are great and Musturi's unique work with color is inspiring. I particularly liked the sections of this work that gave step-by-step instructions for constructing things, like an igloo or a guitar made of wood and an old gas can.

This is the type genius visual storytelling, on the cusp between hilarious and dark, that represents the possibilities of the graphic novel type book.

This book is like if you saw a graffiti artist painting a little character next to his name, then making a book based on that character, with the character doing all kinds of things from the mundane to the extremely weird.

I really didn't have a problem with this, its just not my cup of tea i think. I guess its supposed to be just a cute art book with no real plot. And the art is cool and surreal at times, but ... yeah there's no plot.

Recommended for anyone who needs a break from reading plot he

Groovin' on the visuals... but didn't come away with anything really moving.

Pleasantly and deadpan funny. With spot on exploded diagrams for making things the baby-man needs to make. Nods to Herge, nods to all comics. Chris Ware's little-bit-creepy Finnish cousin.
Fredrik Strömberg
Finländaren Tommi Musturi skapar ordlösa, symboliska serier, ofta med fyra kvadratiska rutor per sida och bilder som svämmar över av fantasifulla detaljer och färgprakt. Inspiration kan skönjas från Hergés och Joost Swartes klara linjen-stil, men även från Jim Woodrings infallsrika, hypnotiska serier. Huvudfiguren är en enkel, stiliserad vit figur som sällan visar några känslor trots att han utsätts för allt från att färdas baklänges från grav till livmoder, till att tecknarens händer bokstavlig ...more

Hienoja ja hauskoja yksittäisiä väläyksiä, mutta kokonaisuutena ei auennut minulle. Sen kuitenkin ymmärrän, että tämä on maailmanluokan sarjakuvantekijän taidonnäyte. Ei vain minun kuppini teetä.

Nonlinear. I love the art and would have given it another star if there was any sort of follow thru between the great set pieces.
