Inhaltsangabe: One of the all-time best and most highly acclaimed graphic novels ever is now, finally, back in print! The first print was a quick sell-out from Kitchen Sink before they disappeared. Dave McKean, famous for Arkham Asylum and his covers for Sandman, presents a highly allegorical tale of the dwellers of an apartment building. They each have their own lives, their own takes on life and these intertwine and relate inevitably to each other in ways that make life¹s mystery. Running in parallel lines or tangentially, the differing lives each have their own tale to tell under the magic spin of McKean¹s brilliant imagery and story-telling. It¹s about a blocked painter, a controversial novelist and a wise musician. It may be about God, about jazz, about sex, but also about creativity and artistic fulfillment. A seminal work that proved, rather refreshingly without artifice, how thought-provoking comic art can be.
Inhaltsangabe: At last -- Dave McKean's landmark Cages as it was meant to be seen and read: a true novel in visual form. Eight years in the making. McKean is an artist with something important to say. In Cages, he has created a fully-realized microcosm, a world consisting of a street, a night club and an apartment house. With this, McKean has a means to comment on mythology, art, God, creation, sex, love and hate. For McKean, Cages is, "the closest I've come to describing my world" And Cages is a beautiful world.
