Críticas

David B. works a real kind of deeply human magicon the page.--Jason Lutes

The stories are held together by the artist 's sense of humor and tone, not to mention the striking, not-quite-black-and-white, two-toned art. [F]antastical events [are] juxtaposed with a to the point, almost ho-hum narration, suggesting the idea that these legends are common occurrences. If only that were so. --Adam W. Kepler

This slim volume is finely edited, and its narrative tone resides on the border between fairy stories and unbowdlerized folk tales.... The drawings, printed in two crisp colors, would be worth the price of the book if it were stripped of words. . . The Armed Garden will delight you. --Hillary Brown"

The Armed Garden and Other Stories is the witty, finely executed work of an artist uniquely capable of capturing both the fervid ecstasy of belief and the dull, heartsick ache left behind once it cools. --Glen Weldon

David B. is clearly one of the best storytellers in the medium of comics.--Joe Sacco

Religious fundamentalism... has worn a thousand faces in a millennia--long carnevale procession of war and weirdness, and David B. paints portraits of three of its masks with bloody brilliance. Focusing on long--forgotten heresies and treating the most outlandishl egends about them as fact, B.'s high--contrast linework sets them all alight with their own incandescent madness.--Sean T. Collins

Reseña del editor

  • David B. gives full rein to his fascination with history, magic, and gods, not to mention grand battles, in this literate, witty, and absorbing collection of short comics — all based on historical fact, or at least historical legend. In The Armed Garden and Other Stories, a lowly Persian fabric dyer becomes a prophet and great leader — and within a year his followers have defeated seven armies sent to stop him! Adam and Eve visit a humble Prague blacksmith, and his (and his followers’) search for Paradise soon leads to bloodshed. In “The Drum Who Fell in Love,” a sequel of sorts, the blacksmith’s opposition, John Zizka, has been skinned by his people and his skin stripped onto a drum, and the drum, speaking in his voice, leads his people into battle, anew. But the touch of a beautiful girl softens Zizka’s spirit, and the unlikely couple journey together...
