One part Jules Verne, one part H.G. Wells, two parts Dante and a pinch of Aesop, Satania is like no other graphic novel. The story is definitely only for adults. Christians may be displeased with the portrayal of what may, or may not, be hell and its demons. The illustrations are serviceable at best. However, the imaginative plot, particularly the ending, is what makes Satania unique.
While I enjoyed this obviously French tale, I hesitate to recommend it to most readers. However, if a reader is bored with regular graphic novel plots and is willing to go down some extremely dark paths, Satania may be a perfect quick read that will resonate long after the last page is done.
Charlie, a young girl, is taking part in an expedition underground to find her missing brother. The deeper underground the party goes, the stranger their discoveries and the more they change - it's a tough book to review because it's an experience rather than a story. The illustrations transport you into someone else's imagination and shows you things you'd never have dreamt up yourself.
I did not realize this was the same person that did Beautiful Darkness, but now that I know that it definitely makes more sense ...in a way. I mean, I'm still not entirely sure what the point of the entire thing was but in the same way that I wasn't entirely sure what the point was in Beautiful Darkness so I guess at least it's consistent.
The plot was kind of confusing and weird to me, or maybe it just wasn't what I was looking for. At first it seemed like it was going to be a Journey to the Center of the Earth kind of thing but then it got all existentialist and completely lost me or else just had me rolling my eyes. Also I don't really like the way the people are drawn because I feel it just looks childish and reminds me of comics in the Sunday newspaper, but the landscapes and backgrounds were absolutely gorgeous once they got really far underground.
There were some good parts I guess, but overall I could have definitely skipped it.
