    Breathtaking and stylistically stripped down
    Metro

    A fascinating wordless adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s well-known short story ‘A Descent Into the Maelström’. Hudréaux has gone for a free interpretation in ninety-nine etchings that swaps the sense of oppression in the original for a broader, more atmospheric depiction. An intriguing and beautiful graphic novel.

    A triumph of atmosphere and style

    The design is soft and clear, the jokes are cynical and as hard as nails ****
    De Standaard

    Sometimes the culprit, sometimes the victim, Dickie always finds himself in awkward and embarrassing situations. The contrast that develops between the stylised drawings and the often coarse jokes creates a balance that is rarely found elsewhere.

    Stunning debut of a major new talent
    Enola

    Vandenbroucke’s distinctive work blends the highbrow with the low, drawing equally from Gordon Matta-Clark’s site-specific artwork and the Three Stooges’ slapstick timing. With a knowing wink at the reader, Vandenbroucke continuously uncovers something to laugh about in the stuffiness and pretentiousness of the art world.

    This sparkling, beautifully designed book is a real revelation.
    De Standaard

    This humorous and text-free story is extremely fast-paced. De Decker’s humour explores the boundaries of the (im)possible, but remains disarmingly innocent at the same time. Otto’s world is one of weird trains of thought and unexpected twists and turns. Its warm heart immediately draws the reader in.

    A fantasmagoria without balloons in which a man sets out on a surreal quest in search of his animality
    Le Soir

    In this wordless tale, the young human boy Mowgli lives alone in the jungle. He soon feels lonely and goes in search of a soulmate. Mowgli’s quest is full of slapstick humour with bloody violence and elephant droppings, but also contains reflections on philosophical questions like individuality and complementarity.

    Murphy is an anti-hero: an astronaut who continually has bad luck. In his miserable space adventures, Charlotte Dumortier is able to experiment fully with colour, framing and page division. The young artist pulls out all the stops. She lets fly with lay-out, rhythm and colouring.

    Plunk!
    One of the best humorous artists in the country
    De Standaard

    A pink alien discovers the world without saying much. His sense of amazement creates ample opportunities for successful jokes. The enormously surreal situations from Letzer’s brain are taken to a very high level by Cromheecke’s clear and deadly efficient style.

    Fantastic. Evens' linework is wonderful... but his coloring is even better.
    Time.com

    ‘Night Animals’ contains two dreamlike, wordless stories that transform everyday experiences into fantastic journeys to strange new worlds. Brecht Evens surprises with stories and images in which he continually seems to extend the limits of his capabilities.
