Asterios Polyp on Amazon
Has anyone else read this? I just finished it this afternoon. It’s pretty good stuff, if you’re into less traditional comics.
Mazzucchelli has worked on stuff in the past, like Batman: Year One and some Daredevil comics. He came to my attention when he did the artwork for the graphic novel version of Paul Auster’s City of Glass, which is probably the best traditional novel to graphic novel adaptations of all time. In fact, it’s much better than the original because of the ability of Mazzucchelli to illustrate emotions and the abstract so expertly.
I highly recommend everyone to check out Mazzucchelli’s newest book. Apparently, he self-published a 3 book series called Rubber Blanket, which I’m going to try to find now.
