Blues et autres récits en couleur - Ruben Pellejero, Jorge Zentner
Well... the art, and the rich colors, are skillful; Pellejero uses color schemes to aid storytelling, emphasize moods, and demarcate time and location. Some of the nearly wordless storytelling is masterful. But the scenarios of these five short stories aren't at the same height. They depend too much on their twist endings, can be contrived, and lack emotional conviction, for the most part. The best, in my opinion, is "The Pink Neon", in which a former hotel employee, his older self drawn in dark colors, walks through his garishly-lit memories of a strange murder. On the other hand, the title story is the weakest of the lot, a thoroughly implausible tale in the service of nothing but slick eroticism.
