Or what they see? What do YOU see when you look into a mirror? Creator Rosario Villajos looks closely at this topic and wonders about life without a face. In her own words:"Face i ...more

The premise is simple enough: the book is about a young woman with no face. It follows her as she struggles to build relationships and explores how she feels that she doesn’t fit in with everyone else. Sound familiar? It should. I’m sure everyone has gone through similar struggles. Because the concept isn’t about looks–it’s about identity. Face (as the character is known) studies the faces of the people around her and tries to emulate them, she begins a relationship and finds herself becoming th ...more

What a strange little metaphorical book about a woman without a face and how this affects the way that people interact with her. The art is both adorable, yet haunting when it needs to be. Still pondering on exactly what Villajos is getting at, and I'm enjoying the intellectual journey. ...more

Me moló muchísimo este comic del que no había oído hablar pero con el que afortunadamente me crucé de casualidad en el curro de una amiga. Me gustó mucho la premisa de partida, esta ausencia de cara, que se le fue borrando a la protagonista en el paso de la adolescencia a primera juventud (qué necesidad ahí de saber quién somos o de encajar en multitud de sitios por estrechos y rígidos que nos queden). Y creo que está resuelto muy guay, y la metáfora con la pérdida de identidad (y búsqueda lo no ...more

Una parábola hasídica cuenta que dios creó al ser humano para que éste pudiera contar historias. Rosario Villajos (Córdoba. 1978) comienza "FACE" rememorando al genio judío de Kafka de “La metamorfosis”, el monumento narrativo fundacional, y en plena vigencia, acerca de la identidad y la extrañeza. Villajos cita unas líneas de aquella sinfonía terrorífica del siglo pasado en su amable, humilde y personal primer cómic publicado por Ponent Mon: un acorde kafkiano. La dibujante cordobesa residente ...more
