Format: Paperback
My first impression of this work of art leads me to believe that U2 probably recorded in Germany just to vibe on this legendary 70's art scene. Readers or rather viewers will find the silent storyboard, illustration and color absolutely breathtaking. Regardless the simple fact is that this is a brilliant graphic novel that is not only well-executed, but also touches on the rise from the despair of post-war German life and the shame of one's lineage. The One Model Nation is obviously striving to rise above to Western standards under repression and the narrowest of views of that era and the repression of self-expression. Still this semi-fictionalized view of this band becomes more pronounced as they breakthrough into the UK charts only to become marginalized. Considering the stigma of thier lineage and what had been leveled at the German culture at that point as not as just a result but also as a byproduct of blame for both World Wars. The One Model Nation it is a quite an amazing journey that ultimately seems to have gone terribly wrong on so many levels.

The script is nice. The drawings are very good. I wont' say this is a masterpiece cause it isn't, but it's an original story that I enjoyed very much.

Disappointing. Artwork is static, hard to tell the characters apart, storytelling skills poor, the story itself is uninteresting. As the band is fictional it could have been interwoven much more effectively with the gripping and idealistic politics, dramatic violence and paranoiac intrigue of the time.
