About this title

Synopsis:

Avigon, an android, was created to be a servant and a slave, but self-awareness has caused her to question the shackles of servitude to her cruel and demanding master. By the creators of Avigon. A Graphic Novel. Original.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up–A beautiful clockwork given sentience by her creator, Avigon has begun questioning who she is and whether she is human. Everything around her is mechanical; robots–clockworks–are designed to act as bodyguards, servants, and mechanics, and there are more than a few pleasure clockworks roaming the streets. Each day Avigon winds herself with a specially programmed key, and each day she feels as if her soul is dying. With neither challenge nor future in being a clockwork, she realizes that there is only one thing she can do–run away. But can she hide in a surreal world of machines where she herself is one? Along her journey, Avigon falls in love, but she also learns that there is truth to her creator's statement that a clockwork can never be human. A previously published graphic novel called Avigon (Image Comics, 2002) told the story of a robot girl who runs away from her master to the outside world and the painful lesson she learns there. This updated version gives Avigon's background and tells what happens when she returns home. Gilson's style of writing may be minimalist, but it is not bare of emotion. Robinson's use of black and white and gray scale adds to the somber tone. The drawings are simple yet dramatic, similar in style to Tim Burton's work.–Erin Dennington, Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA
