    1 thought on “Eden”

    1. La verdad es que la “sensibilidad” de cómics como este me repugna un poco. Es más cursilería que poesía. Me molestó bastante esa visión que tiene el autor de las mujeres; una visión en la que estamos en la tierra con la única misión de hacer más llevadera la vida de los hombres. Quizás se condiga con la estética decimonónica que tiene Edén. En general, los dibujos no humanos me parecieron adorables. Y fin.

    2. crosses the sentimentality line a lot of times without losing a limb. similar approach to Clowes' Wilson in building a mosaic out of one-page jokes, except the result here is a landscape, not a portrait, and everything in the landscape can talk to every other thing in the landscape.

    3. This book felt simple and sweet as I read it, but something deeper (and darker) than charm stuck with me after I finished it. I can't stop thinking about it.

    4. Os jardins terão sempre o mais assombroso e o mais tocante da relação do ser humano com a natureza

    5. There are too few books in this big wide world that one can just read and put down afterward with a smile with a feeling like no matter what else may give you heartache, be personal or world-weary; because art, literature like this CAN and continues to exist; everything is and will be okay. As long as Art can still lift its voice above all and be Heard, repeating; as long as I am here; all be okay.

    6. Tenía leídas la inmensa mayoría de tiras de este libro (y me gustaron bastante en su mayoría), pero lo pospuse hasta comprármelo para leerlo todito en papel. El promedio final me pareció muy bueno, pero las tiras que no me habían gustado en su momento ahora me gustaron menos todavía.Vi que ya salió el tomo 2, que pinta bastante lindo. Pero de momento niempedo me lo compro: me niego a pagar más de 1$ la página.

    7. I picked this up on a whim because I liked the ghost lady on the front, and I'm so glad I did. Pablo has created a series of four panel comics full of whimsy and magic. His charming drawings and characters exist in a medieval-esque world of Eden, and yet many of the panels explore basic questions of humanity that make them relatable. A few even made me tear up, but most made me smile.

    8. Not actually a novel, but a comic kind of along the lines of "The Clouds Above" & "The Last Lonely Saturday Night". Maybe even "Billy Hazelnuts". Clearly I'm getting soft in my old age but there is something touching about the unabashed sentiment of how people are better served by caring about each other. Guess I'm out of my Cormic McCarthy phase

    9. Charming, magical, sometimes philosophical comic strips that occasionally teeter a bit close to the edge of cloying sentimentality but never quite going over. Really like the artist's drawings and color work. Overall, quite a lovely little book, recommended for dreamy types of all ages.

    10. One reviewer writes that the comics "feel like they were written by a friend who loves you deeply" and I wholeheartedly agree. The images aren't saccharine but full of imagination and generosity. There is a spirit that lives in these comics. I highly recommend them!

    11. Recopilatorio de las tiras de Edén de Kioskerman. Incluye también una tira de Miguel B. Núñez (página 111).

    12. Un tebeo-cuento encantador, mágico y cotidiano. Para leerlo muchas veces y perderse por sus paisajes y personajes sencillos.

    13. The sweetest, gentlest, loveliest, kindest collection of comic strips I have ever read. Poetic in imagery and sentiment as the Little Prince or the book of bedtime stories you loved most as a kid.

    14. I found this to be alternately touching, funny and philosophical. It's very simple on the surface, but it really makes you think.
