by Barry Winsdsor-Smith
35 years in the making, the most anticipated graphic novel in recent comics history!
is the legendary
project Barry Windsor-Smith has
been working on for over 35 years. A 360-page tour de force of visual storytelling,
Monsters' narrative canvas is both
vast and deep: part familial drama, part political thriller, part metaphysical journey, it
is an intimate portrait of
individuals struggling to reclaim their lives and an epic political odyssey across two
generations of American history.
Trauma, fate, conscience, and redemption are just a few of the themes that intersect in the
most ambitious graphic novel
of Windsor-Smith's career. Monsters is rendered in Windsor-Smith's impeccable pen-and-ink
technique, the visual
storytelling with its sensitivity to gesture and composition is the most sophisticated of
the artist's career. There are
passages of heartbreaking tenderness, of excruciating pain, and devastating violence. It is
surely one of the most
intense graphic novels ever drawn.
