Paco Roca (Francisco Martínez Roca) is a graphic artist and a cartoonist from Valencia, Spain.

His graphic novel Wrinkles won every Spanish comics award and has been adapted into an animated feature film, with a script by Roca himself. His other works include Twists of Fate and The House, which is also available in a Spanish language edition (La Casa). His newest book, The Winter of the Cartoonist, is now available from Fantagraphics!

Editorial Reviews


"Roca examines grief as an overstuffed house that the bereaved must restore, rebuild, and, ultimately, let go in this touching and pensive ensemble cast graphic novel."
Publishers Weekly

"A melancholy and deeply sympathetic meditation on sibling dynamics and the role memory plays in the grieving process."
Library Journal

"A study of the complex relationships of family and the ties that bind from a storyteller whose powerful depiction of human frailties is both haunting and ever recognisable."
Broken Frontier

"A moving exploration of family dynamics in the face of loss. Roca’s illustrations bring it to a whole other level and make The House the gorgeous piece of art that it is."
Book Riot

4.0 out of 5 stars A candid look at a family working through its grief
By Reasonable Reviewer on August 1, 2019
I received "the House" specifically to write a review. That said, I try to be honest and open in all my reviews.

(Please see the enclosed pictures.)

This is an emotionally gripping graphic novel about a real topic that almost everyone can relate to.

When a father dies and leaves his house that was also the adult children's home growing up, cleaning the place up comes with a lot of memories.

The book is very well done. The cartoons are of the highest quality and are consistent. The plot, an emotional series of sub-stories, are engaging and interesting.

I especially liked that the men and women were displayed as real men and real women with the flaws, gifts, and desires of real people. None were saints, and none were devils.

Husbands and wives flirted and nattered, and all the things that real people do.

My one nit with the book was that some of the stories appeared to be "inside stories," things that the family could relate to, but as a reader, I had no idea what was going on or why the stories were important. It may be that I did not know enough about the author or his previous work. Still, you should know that this is not strictly a standalone book.

All in all, this is a lovely book on many levels from casual fun to a chance to share and talk through tough issues before the worst happens.
