Shadows of Existence: discoveries & speculations in zoology
I came to know about leo for mthe aldebaraan series.. The first few books in that episode were really great, but by the time antares came along, I started losing interest..
And then I saw this series. I had to give it a try. Bought the first one. Liked it. Placed everything else available in the series on pre-order.
LEO , the artist of this project is Brazilian , now age 70 is most famous for his later solo work The Aldebaran series of of Science Fiction graphic novels done for the Franco Belgian market. LEO is a pseudonym for Luis Eduardo de Oliveira.
This series consists of Five volumes and was done with writer Rodolphe, this one originally appeared in 2001. Cinebook has been translating and reprinting these books for The British and American marketplace. I applaud their their decision , but lament the results.
The original books are pricey but beautiful. They are oversized Hardcovers. Cinebook reduces the art down to comic book size and prints in as a cheap trade paperback. Just looking through the book you will realize that this book contains many more panels per page then your average comic , that is because it is meant to be read in the larger size.
The reproduction and the coloring look very good despite the reduction. The biggest offense they have committed is obscuring the rather harmless nudity on pages 7 and 20. In the first case they have drawn what looks like a swimsuit on a woman bent on seduction. The second is even worse with black clunky shadows being added to our heroine's figure as she is seen changing for bed. Their belief is that the nudity would prevent children from buying it. Really in today's age how many children are likely to buy this to begin with. If kids are reading comics , I don't see this being a likely selection when straight up Porn is available every where now for any youths looking for it. This Puritan Censorship of art is never OK with me. It already says for ages 15 and older on the back cover, change that if you like.
Sorry for the rant, but I think this is a case of a publisher just not understanding their market.
The story takes place in 1947 Africa an expedition party has disappeared after sighting what looks like a prehistoric animal. Miss Austin arrives in Kenya from England to take over a teaching position. She meets two fellow teachers from France and Germany who are rivals for her affection. Together they discover more mysteries including a big crater and a flying saucer picture.
This is start of a great series and I plan to be on board for it all , and maybe someday we will get the unedited version in the format it deserves.
