These early X-force comics presage. The fact is, Cfepax is a voyeur by nature. Berna Labourdette rated it liked it Dec 29, You need the few moments you dedicate to action in these comics to hit hard.
Other books in the series.
People ran so hardcore away from Liefeld—but characters popping out of and through crepqx is something you SHOULD be doing in an action comic. Without ever intending it, it eventually became a big book. These are some more pages from Hello Anita—I picked them for a more broad point about Crepax which is that his pages and rhythms tend to work along these two types of axis of which this is one.
The page above is from Anita Live—which is in my opinion the best colored Crepax work. Oh I also have those old Sam Keith Wolverine stories. William Osma marked it as to-read May 24, I can sort of agree with that. It might be my favorite thing in comics. But yeah—Crepax is the master. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
I feel that Crepax, particularly in Bianca creates rhythms that are important in this direction. His strengths in rhythm, paneling, and form are most allowed to run around to their logical endpoints in Bianca—where in other works, he is perhaps constrained somewhat.
Bekir added it Feb 18, The composition is actually very much an exclamation mark in shape. I mostly just wanted to write about that Crepax layout though. And really, for probably a lot of the same reasons in terms of their audience.
Rob Liefeld X-force comics are the realest thing. Nemoanon marked it as to-read May 28, I love that sort of stuttered lurching interior rhythm of the page. Want to Read saving…. He likes to represent erotic scenes without identifying with those he portrays.
This page is fantastic. I am not interested whatsoever in plot points, character growth, or any of the other million things that so many critics and creators have decided is important in this day and age.
Hello Anita (Crepax)
The above page is from Bianca. Trivia About Hello, Anita!
This is a two page spread that you have to turn the book sideways to actually read, and Stryfe is actually perching his foot on one of the panels from which he is speaking. This distance is how he is different from someone like Manara. Preview — Hello, Anita!
I like it a lot. She has no profession; she could perhaps, be a student. Sam Keith is someone no one including me pay enough attention to.

Alexandre Loth added it Jan 21, Beyond the composition of his pages—one of the things I love about Anita Live and Emmanuelle is how long and languid his characters are. One of the things I still get a lot out of the old Rob Liefeld X-Force comics I read as a kid is how dynamic his pages were. Mauro added it Jun 12, Particularly the first say 7 issues—which I think are a sort of rock start testament to the efficacy of his approach within the genre.
Page design like this is the kind of thing you would tear out of the comic and hang on your wall.
Ulrik Nielsen rated it really liked it May 28, I find that when I read Valentina, that is my criticism of it—that in some ways, she participates crfpax adventures—that I am not really that certain matter—but because of the rigidity of that world, there is a linearity that in parts of Valentina she has to adhere to.
Compared to Valentina, whose adventures belong to a particular reality so real she even has anlta identity cardI had fun making Bianca a completely free character. On pages like this—he kind of segments off a quarter of the vertical sides of one of his pages—in aniita instances the left side of the page—so the left side will have a longer vertical rectangle going down the side of the page—and then the right side of the page will have smaller panel sort of zig-zagging their way down the page—which creates a tension as a reader—because take the third page aniya as an example—I think your natural inclination even with the rule of speech bubble eye following IS to go down the vertical left section of the page like a scroll and THEN move back up to the top.
Also I think the bisected single anitq is one of the more beautiful things in comics. I think Ales Kot was saying on twitter the other day about flipping out about reading a comic where someone was just flat out wasting space.
Print This probably speaks a lot to my adoration of the Bianca stories—because they are the primacy of the image and the sequence. Time stutters, stops, starts again, rewinds, zooms in—beautiful to watch. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Ainta to Book Page.
They are like exclamation marks on a page. The first and second panel are amaaaazing. Rather, his focus is on form, technique, and storytelling—and he explores those elements almost fatalistically.
