Fabulous So bizarre and pensive, yet thoroughly entertaining like wondering about the vacuums around the lives of characters in vintage cartoons when you are a kid and they re created by adults It took my brain out of my head a little and danced with it And I want things that I read to do the same Also, hugely indebted to Max for mentioning Herbert Crowley I have been meaning to check him out since watching the Toynbee Tiles documentary, and completely forgot Now I m back on the mission to get a monography it exists, but too damn expensive.

Unfortunately a very disappointing read, which tries to dwell into deep questions in a very shallow manner While it is obvious that the book has no claim for any sort of answers, it actually also doesn t have any questions it s like a confused teen s whims who had just come across a book about mysticism and read just the back cover.
But the art is very good, therefore would be worth to look at the pages while skipping the lines.
A very strange book, abstract My favorite part is when Nick s shadow abandons him, both the art and the dialogue are very thought provoking.
☆ Vapor ↠´ I very much enjoy Max s works I was impressed in the past with The Extended Dream of Mr D and Bard n the Superrealist, and Vapor certainly follows in tone and scope It s surreal, philosophical, and artfully rendered in a minimal style We re discussing this book on the Jan 28th episode of The Comics Alternative.
Maybe I m not deep enough to appreciate it, but this book seemed like it was trying a little too hard to mean something It all just felt like noise to me.
Not much story Great b w clean line drawing References to other comix artists abound.
A version of this review was published, in German, in the Swiss comics journal STRAPAZIN Thirty or so years into his rich and productive career, the Catalan cartoonist and illustrator Max has surely cemented his place in the Pantheon of great comic artists the post punk master of Ligne Claire Ligno Claro has evolved into a marvelous and sympathetic genius of funny, wise, and poignant surrealism Max does not publish frequently A new book comes around every seven or eight years, and he appears to release them when he s ready to do so, heedless of the demands of the market or his publishers The publication of Vapor late last year is, then, cause for celebration It s a delightful piece of cartooning, simple to read but not easy to understand A charming little fellow named Nicodemus one is always tempted, as with Bardin and Mr D.
, to see Max s characters as autobiograph
