About this title

Synopsis:

Life is far from rosy for comic author Simon Muchat. He's lost inspiration in his work and meaning in his life. But when he's invited to Portugal for a few days, he accidentally finds something he wasn't looking for: the smells of childhood, the melody of summer laughter, the radiant warmth of a forgotten - and possibly abandoned - family. As he confronts a past that's been erased, Simon finally retraces his own path. In a work bordering on personal memoir, using humour and vivacity, bold colours and raw emotions, Cyril Pedrosa creates a seminal tale on the quest for identity.

Review:

"Pedrosa's art is outstanding, combining the warmth and vitality of sketchwork with an eye for detail and facial expressions. The book's palette of colors also helps to draw outsiders into the very personal experience of Portugal--a book that deserves every bit of the attention it has garnered." --Foreword Reviews
"Cyril Pedrosa's Equinoxes is an impressive feast of a book." --Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics and The Sculptor "Pedrosa deftly narrates his return to his roots in a deeply compelling and warmly human way." --Midwest Book Review

"Pedrosa's book works as a piece of art, so beautiful are the contents." --The Beat

"Pedrosa keeps the book moving briskly thanks to his facility with dialogue, skill with visual pacing and genuine affection for his characters." --High-Low Comics

"Thoughtful and well executed. The color work is exceptional." --Booklist

"A fine example of how graphic fiction can indeed be literature." --ICv2

"Ambitious and beautifully drawn. Worthy of recognition for comics as literature." --Foreword

"Quite simply put, Equinoxes may just be one of the most important books you read this year. It is that damn good." --Broken Frontier

"With this graphic novel, the master cartoonist lays it all bare. Like an overstimulated genius infant still fresh and new. " --Comics Grinder

"Ten Best Graphic Novels of 2017. As much a triumph of atmosphere as action. The book's artist as a young man may be disenchanted, but the dazzling, meditative panels are entirely enchanting" --Michael Cavna, Washington Post "Cyril Pedrosa's Equinoxes is an impressive feast of a book." --Scott McCloud, author of Understanding Comics and The Sculptor "Pedrosa deftly narrates his return to his roots in a deeply compelling and warmly human way." --Midwest Book Review "Digging into the past shows him how to move forward, and Pedrosa turns Simon's self-discovery into a beautiful journey through a foreign country full of wonders. There's remarkable precision in the artwork, with each location and character rendered in lush detail." --Onion AV Club
