Some hate his sketchy art, some hate his dialogue, some hate his fragmented, disjointed storytelling, interweaving all these different story threads, but for all these hings, I like him.
The tories include a Greek cup 's journey through history ( this is the image that we follow throughout the memoi, a hing that ties all of the tories together), a female pirate, and a man in London during WWI sending money back to her mother -- that eventually ( after a shor and potentially confusing time, maybe) intersect.
Maybe with Kindt it is because he is pushing the medium, forcing himself to use visual images primarily to tell his story.
And I admit I am every time I read a Kindt story a little lost at first; I have to reread to get the links.
The cup makes its way through all places and times and stories, and that is unusual, though it 's just an image that ties things together, finally.
… but it makes you work harder than most spy stories or pirate tales, so I would say it ai n't kid stuff.
Not veryone is convinced that you can tell complicated spy thrillers with very few words, depending for your interpretation on almost exclusively images, but I say if you pay attention to the photograph and do n't just skip ahead ( as most readers do with description) to the dialogue, you 'll see, he 's teaching you how to read images and giving you clues toward coherence.
Some people hate Kindt 's sketchy art, but that is as I see it consistent with the narrativ, it is minimalist, using as little as possible to tell the tale.
