Comic Spotlight: THE MARQUIS: DANSE MACABRE
Guy Davis’ book The Marquis: Danse Macabre is nothing short of absolutely phenomenal. The writing is superb; nothing about it is on the nose, trite, or needless. The art submerses you in this fantastic Gothic world out of time and space. It is simple, yet incredibly detailed and can absorb you in a way that Otomo’s Akira did. The book is reminiscent of Moore’s V for Vendetta, and is less preachy. Which is a strange concept because it has to do with religion, which is very apt to come across as vexatious noise that berates the ear. Read more
