Ci Vediamo

CiVediamo CiVediamo_guts 
32 pages, 6.5" x 5.5", $6.00 by Hazel Newlevant >>> newlevant.com 
This came with a very nice letter from Hazel asking me to review it. She kinda did my job for me since also in her note, it explains the title - "Ci Vediamo" is an Italian parting phrase meaning, "We'll see each other." And that the comic is a wordless story of love, loss, and moving on. It also won a Xeric Award! That's pretty cool. I'm really glad for Hazel. Unfortunately this isn't my kinda comic. I'm not a fan of wordless comics, and this one seems so slight. There's a girl, and a guy, they both look sad and thoughtful, then some autumnal trees, then dandelions... I should mention that throughout the comic are opaque pages also with drawings and when these are turned they do create some interesting effects. It's very cleverly done. It's a little gimmicky though. ... Ah, fuck it. This is probably really great, I'm just not sensitive enough to appreciate it. *Blub!*

Ha ha! That's exactly what I wrote between the lines: "This is basically just a big girly book."

This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

Re: John Michael Sheehan
Thanks John. If that's your real name. Is this some new kind of spam? Have I really put a new spin on a topic that has been written about for years? It's quite a compliment, but sadly I suspect this is some kind of weird spam :[
