"Richard McGuire's Here is the story of a corner of a room and the events that happened in that space while moving forward and backward in time. The book experiments with formal properties of comics, using multiple panels to convey the different moments in time. Hundreds of thousands of years become interwoven. A dinosaur from 100,000,000 BCE lumbers by, while a child is playing with a plastic toy that resembles the same dinosaur in the year 1999. Conversations appear to be happening between two people who are centuries apart. Someone asking, "Anyone seen my car keys?" can be "answered" by someone at a future archeology dig. Cycles of glaciers transform into marshes, then into forests, then into farmland. A city develops and grows into a suburban sprawl. Future climate changes cause the land to submerge, if only temporarily, for the long view reveals the transient nature of all things. Meanwhile, the attention is focused on the most ordinary moments and appreciating them as the most transcendent"--… (mais)

    Ceremonial Time: Fifteen Thousand Years on One Square Mile por John Hanson Mitchell (JanesList)
    JanesList: Both Ceremonial Time by Mitchell and Here by McGuire cover the idea of the past and present of a particular location. Although in completely different formats (Mitchell is a writer, McGuire a graphic novelist) they have overlapping themes.

Une bande dessinée très très high-concept : chaque double-page représente le même endroit, vu selon le même point de vue et le même angle de vue au cours de plusieurs centaines de millions d'années (sur une période aussi longue, la définition de "même endroit" pose de sérieux problèmes, que McGuire élude), et plus particulièrement des quelques centaines d'années où des humains l'ont fréquenté, entre 1500 et 2300. Les illustrations avant et après l'homme (on reconnaît au passage le reedstilt de Douglas Dixon), restent somme toute anecdotique.

Vers 1500, l'endroit était une forêt où des Indiens d'Amérique venaient chasser et copuler ; vers 1700, le jardin d'une demeure palatiale ; au vingtième siècle et au début du vingt-et-unième, un pavillon où de nombreux habitants se succèdent ; et dans le futur, une sorte de musée. Tout cela est démantibulé, car non seulement les époques sont présentées dans le désordre, mais au sein d'une même pages plusieurs époques cohabitent généralement, via des cases séparées qui montrent différentes partie de l'endroit à différentes époques. Pas de récit, ou peu : les situations sont pour la plupart des instants isolés, éternellement immobiles, un peu comme les vignettes de La vie mode d'emploi.

Entre les scènes qui se succèdent et se superposent, un jeu complexe d'échos et de contrastes s'élabore. Intéressant, mais très très high-concept. ( )

Interesting and really nice artwork. I can see why people love this, but ultimately it just didn't have enough for me. I wanted more story, more cohesion, more to dig into. It just left me feeling a little unsatisfied. The panels all,work together and there were pages where I notice a slight build of emotion but it never gelled enough in the end. ( )

Have you ever wondered what a house sees or goes though. In this book the reader gets the history of a house and the land the house was built on and all those who lived near it over millennia. This is not a congruent story, but one told with pictures laid upon pictures, laid upon pictures. On one page you would have a view from 15000 BC to 2045. Yes even into the future. There are few words and the book plays with emotion and visuals instead of lyrics. And it works quite well. ( )

Rather poetic. Maybe a tad too optimistic on the future of humanity in 2050 and 2213. A bit non-committal because of the fragmented narrative: I expected to experience more emotions when I finished it.

I guess the inclusion of the BCE shots with dinosaurs etc. are supposed to put perspective on the fleeting nature of humanity, but it doesn't really work as the narrative remains human centered: you can't have your cake & eat it.

Rather bourgeois as power structures & poverty are absent from this kaleidoscope - even as McGuire includes a bit of Benjamin Franklin. The few Native Americans that are present function more as a prop than as a stepping board for some serious soul searching about colonial empire. Again, the narrative remains firmly centered on the 20th century in a comfortabel middle class room: all else is just a sideshow.

Somewhere between 'I liked it' & 'I really liked it'. A very fast read, so don't hesitate to check this out and see how you feel about it. Singular as a vision on storytelling, and that should be enough to convince anybody interested in narrative, and as such definitely recommended.

I tend to think of it as a comics truism that the shorter way is always, always the best way to tell a story, but maybe Here, six pages that became hundreds, is the exception that proves the rule. By patiently teasing out a more or less complete historical and poetic context for the patch of land he sets his story down on, returning to characters and scenes again and again while simultaneously showing us the circumstances that brought them forth, McGuire transcends the quick, “gotcha!” feel of the original short and turns a formal exercise into something as rich with character and anecdote and forward motion as any more traditional novel.
