The only complaint I have about the book is that the artwork and the dialogue is so small. You can hardly read the words and you can't enjoy the pictures as much as you want because the comic format keeps parts of the story on the same page. I hope for volume two Ms. Butler is allowed to put less pictures on the page and is able to make them more viewable (I know it would make the book bigger and maybe more expensive, but that artwork MUST be seen!). This would also make it senior friendly.
So buy this book to support the author but enjoy the wonderful creation of Lackadaisy online, it is really the best place to view it!
The concept, the drawings, the characters, the expressions, the coherence... Rock-solid consistency among colours, plot, ambient... All that wonderful art-déco, great documentation. It's really the portrait of an era. One could think "yet another cat story?", but definitely we need this cat story. This is a masterwork.
The text is terrific as well; not being English my mother language, I actually find reading a bit difficult sometimes and I can't enjoy all of it, but even in that case I get the flavour and it's definitely worth the effort.
As for the edition, it's OK, but I'd really love to read this in a bigger format. That's the only drawback; it's a bit too small for such a careful drawing and lighting. These scenes deserve to be enjoyed a lot more.
As a summary, this novel is one of my top comic books, and I'd willingly pay much more bucks to get a bigger edition (not to mention a new volume).
Before all I could do was admire the artistic aspect of Tracy's Lackadaisy but now I purchased the comic and appreciate the whole entirety of it. And this is coming from me when I have never been the biggest fan of cats and grew up being terrified by them. I find this comic utterly fascinating and beautiful to stare at (excuse my creepiness) for I have a deep love for technique and artwork and drawings. The story is so impressive, I just feel Tracy is so talented and created a world from our world but was still able to throw factors into it that made it the perfect historical fiction read so that the parts that are also true are very far away from boring.
And, of course, Ms. Butler's artwork and story line are fabulous, well researched, and solid. It's always a treat to read what she has created so far. It's even more of a treat to have her work sitting on my bookshelf.
