The Red Diary: Teddy Kristiansen has written and painted a masterwork of subtle tragedy, a poignant mystery for a French audience where delicate, subtle brushstrokes merely complement the words rather than tell the story. To be concise, a mystery is slowly unravelled through three diaries. To say more would be criminal.
The R(e)ad Diary: Steven Seagle has "translated" the work for American audiences without knowing a word of French. What he created is as vastly different from the tale as a symphony is from a teardrop. Alien, introspective (and missing the point completely) but ultimately worth the effort, Seagle's tale takes the abstract images and makes them concrete to form a narrative of a man at odds with himself.
This volume combines both tales in a flip fashion: one story lies opposite the other, a perfect package.

Having given up on Graphic Novels some years before, House of Secrets created a fascination with both artists from that day on and rekindled my love of comics in all their many forms.
This is a beautifully realised large format book and like its predecessor "Is it a Bird" moves the genre on again with its concept of a "Remix".
I suggest reading the book before finding out its secret.....it makes it all the more captivating.
