Read full description of the books:
Just take a look for a minute or so at some images from what Scott McCloud calls the “sumptuous feast” of this ambitious and awe-inspiring graphic novel by Pedrosa.
But first, what is an equinox?
An equinox happens when the plane of the equator passes through the center of the sun. It occurs twice a year; once in late March, and again in late September. On an equinox, day and night are of approximately equal duration all over the planet. So the idea is to show the passage of time in various contexts and with different people.
The idea here for the purpose of story and art is balance, equilibrium. The novel is multilayered, multigenre, involving an array of characters (though mainly from two central groups) from different social backgrounds, some of them weaving into other stories. Slice of life. So that part of it seems multiple, less balanced, complicatedly related, but it is also balanced in many ways: it’s divided into four sections, each one connected with a season. Musical lyrics make its way throughout.
Each season has a silent sub-section telling an anecdote of a young person in prehistoric times. Each features a woman taking photographs and making up stories—in prose, no comics--of the people she photographs. These prose stories happen once in each of the four sections. Each character seeks equilibrium in her own ways. They’re all trying to make meaning, make sense of things. We have an atheist and a priest for brothers. Balanced. Visually each section has its color schema and tone. The last section, in summer, seems to bring things to some kind of closure.
But it’s not about plot, foremost. It’s a reflective canvas on which ideas are being painted with rich tones. It feels like this is one of the books that can join the great new voices of the graphic novel as a serious literary and artistic form. It’s an adult novel, for those interested more broadly in the arts, and deeper reflections about the meaning of life. Introspective. Just wonderfully drawn and colored, lovely to see. One needs to read it again and again, and I have just read it once over ten days or so and I feel have just scratched at the surface of it. Guess I am just going to have buy it. You should check it out.
