Footnotes and annotations

STETSTET by Sarah Gailey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Very different. In a good way. A tragic story told in the footnotes and annotations. Clever. Very relevant topic. I do not have the answer as to what is right or wrong or how the decision should be made.

The Incal Vol. 6: The Fifth Essence - Planet DiFoolThe Incal Vol. 6: The Fifth Essence – Planet DiFool by Alejandro Jodorowsky
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I am pretty ambivalent about the whole experience and glad to be done with it. I think I do not like John DiFool much. I pretty much agree with those 78 million…. What a wanker.

The twist at the end was neat and there were some nice panels towards the end.

But mostly I felt very meh and couldn‘t wait to get to the end. The resolution of the storyline was underwhelming. This felt a bit like smoking too much weed and listening to Ravi Shankar‘s Best Of.

Definitely not picking up more of this. Yes, it‘s a classic. And if you are a completionist, have a look at it for the sake of rounding off your experience of European graphic novels. Other than that maybe read the first volume and don‘t bother with the rest.
