    Like most Sci Fi I started off lost but once I figured it out it was GREAT Keep at it and you will be pleasantly surprised Super uniue kind of grotesue and a perfect amount of karma

    A “silent” comic that blends sci fi dystopian slapstick with corporate warfare It’s a bit like Chaplin’s Modern Times a bit like Prohias’s Spy vs Spy and a bit like Groening’s Futurama It’s funny frightening and eerily familiar Great stuff


  3. Derek Royal Derek Royal says:

    A fun and wonderfully told story And as we discussed on a recent episode of The Comics Alternative podcast this would make an interesting animated film and as one it'd have the feel of a Pixar meets Cohen brothers sort of thing

    Comics without words In the future where two 'lords' are trying to destroy each other with help of their servants Funny cynical also little sad and full of cartoonish violence Art is uniue and very nice but I can understand that will probably not suite everybody Pastel color palette with prevailing blue red and orange tones helps creates atmosphere and makes you remember the book long after you are done with it As whole story is told without single sentence it is something you can return to to look for new things and interpretations


  5. Andrew Andrew says:

    A mix of Antonio Prohias and Jason with a dash of Jim Woodring too Enjoyable and clever but the anti capitalist satire isn't as deep or as cutting as it needs to be

    This graphic novel is Chris Wares meets Terry Gilliam It details a day in a dystopian society in which dueling corpocracies reign The concept reminds me gently of David Mitchell's Sonmi 451 portion of Cloud Atlas and fragments of Wall E with its relentless focus on company identity Also the people look funnyThe Longest Day of the Future details the workday of two citizens each serving an opposing corporate overlord Each citizen is coerced into the task of subterfuge One using a mysterious alien wrought suitcase The other by building a killing machine that masuerades as a maid I won't give away too much What this graphic novel succeeds in most is the way humor is evinced through violence pointed moments of the grotesue and the utterly mundane Violence is caricatured trypophobic and skin crawly Those accustomed to the Gilliam Monty Python humor will appreciate these heavy doses of the surreal The Chris Wares reference is well earned in the graphic novel's diligent rendering of the relatable pathetic Our not uite protagonist is exhausted at the start of the workday and lights up at the sight of coffeeThis novel sits suarely in the realm of sad laugh The saddest parts of The Longest Day of the Future are the references to the world we live in A struggle that demolishes bots amputates a man and kills dozens of innocents is incredibly futile The killing robot is sidetracked by its errantly strong desire to kill a fly—ironically this behavior isn't even programmed initially it is learned by experience I am keeping this purposefully obliue to avoid spoilers There is an infantile charm in a society that spends so much time building sophisticated machines only to be undone by poor social interaction I think everyone can get thatI was not expecting to be so engaged by a work with no words It is a devilishly uick read clocking in at only 20 minutes But I returned to take in the beginning of the tale The panels are beautiful The pacing is rewarding Varela has constructed narrative logic that often declares logic to be unnecessary It's a trip

    Ooo la la this book is GORGEOUS Lucas Varela's virtually wordless debut graphic novel The Longest Day Of The Future is SO beautiful but that beauty is the sugar coating on a pretty bitter takedown of greed unfettered capitalism and selfish ambition It's like one of those pop songs that has a really upbeat melody but the lyrics are super depressing Of course I loved itTold in a series of interconnecting vignettes Varela's protagonists if you can even call them that are from two global corporations one red and one blue that are competing against one another for dominance of their Jetsons style futuristic world Murderous robots double agents assassination plots and television propaganda are all handled very humorously but considering our current political climate they're not that far from being plausible Visually the art has a very European flavor and the flat repetitive coloring is perfect for such a contentious dystopian environment At a glance The Longest Day Of The Future could be mistaken for a light children's book but it's really working on several mature levelsIt's easy to get focused on comics being made by mostly North American creators; obviously they're the most readily available But I'd love to see publishers bring foreign comics to the attention of American audiences Relying on his precise drawings to tell the bulk of the story Valera's book didn't need much of a translation but its message is relevant no matter where you're from

    I can't pretend that I understood the whole thing it's a wordless graphic novel On one hand comprehension may have been helped by a written narrative but then on the other hand the fact it had no words made it all the creepy It may be towards 35 stars but it was weird enough to round up I'd definitely check out from this creator


  9. Cole Schoolland Cole Schoolland says:

    Varela rises to the occasion to establish world and tell a wonderful story without any words at all His artwork is simple and cartoonish but highly expressive Emotion and intent can be easily seen in each pain The story takes place in a future dominated by two rival corporations All of society is split right dow the middle You are either living working and consuming the red pig or the blue bunny There is no middle ground in Varela's future At the top of these organizations are bosses with their sidekicks henchmen scientists and on down to the plebes When an alien ship with unknown powers crashes its advanced technology is captured by Blue Bunny Blue Bunny blackmails one of their own disguising him as a Red Pig to use this technology to kill the head of Red Pig At the same time one of Red Pig's scientists sends his killer robot who is actually uite compassionate to do the same Chaos ensuesNo one is left unchanged by the seuence of events that follows Some find love Others die In the end has anything really changed?


  10. Tony Tony says:

    I picked this up initially because I really liked the clean style of the artwork and then I was intrigued by its wordlessness It's such a challenge to tell an effective story with pictures along and I got sucked into seeing where this would go It's a surrealist satire set in a futuristic city whose citizens live in thrall to two fast food corporations one has a pig logo one has a rabbit logo who are engaged in an endless loop of corporate espionage and sabotage Into this setting crashes a UFO containing an extra dimensional briefcase nod to Kiss Me Deadly which becomes just another tool in the corporate war There's plenty subtext for those that wish to unpack all the implied commentary on our own world but it's eually enjoyable as a kind of fever dream of imagination and art Recommended for those that like their comix to be heavier on theme than story
