World War I, that awful, gaping wound in the history of Europe, has long been an obsession of Jacques Tardi's. It Was the War of the Trenches is Tardi's defining, masterful statement on the subject, a graphic novel that can stand shoulder to shoulder with Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front and Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms. Tardi is not interested in the national politics, the strategies, or the battles. Like Remarque, he focuses on the day to day of the grunts in the trenches, and, with icy, controlled fury and disgust, with sardonic yet deeply sympathetic narration, he brings that existence alive as no one has before or since. Yet he also delves deeply into the underlying causes of the war, the madness, the cynical political exploitation of patriotism. And in a final, heartbreaking coda, Tardi grimly itemizes the ghastly human cost of the war, and lays out the future 20th century conflicts, all of which seem to spring from this global burst of insanity. Trenches features some of Tardi's most stunning artwork. Rendered in an inhabitually lush illustrative style, inspired both by abundant photographic documentation and classic American war comics, augmented by a sophisticated, gorgeous use of Craftint tones, Trenches is somehow simultaneously atypical and a perfect encapsulation of Tardi's mature style. It is the indisputable centerpiece of Tardi's oeuvre.

Críticas:

Tardi's depiction of the First WorldWar is so impassioned and visceralthat it can be compared to the work ofthe artists who actually served in thetrenches.--Joe Sacco, author of Palestine

Ink-soaked and gory, Tardi's detailed renderings drive home the grotesquery of the war and the ordeal of the young men fighting in it. ...It Was the War of the Trenches creates an aura of loss, regret and terror. --Michael C. Lorah

Tardi's work which is distinguished by an unstinting attention to locale and detail, captures the true horror of war in a way that no other artist has been quite able to achieve. ... This is the story of man against the system, with the system as the ultimate winner. This is a story for our times. --Peter Richardson"

Ink-soaked and gory, Tardi s detailed renderings drive home the grotesquery of the war and the ordeal of the young men fighting in it. ...It Was the War of the Trenches creates an aura of loss, regret and terror. --Michael C. Lorah"

In terms of its writing and its art, Trenches is a masterful work. But the book s true victory is a moral one. For it shows us, clearly and terribly, the thorough destruction of values inherent in modern war. --Kristian Williams"

Starred Review. While the visuals, which draw upon battlefield photographs, are thoroughly convincing, the soldiers harrowing experiences, fictionalized by Tardi, register as even more powerfully authentic. The potency of the soldiers tragic stories is enhanced by the elegance of Tardi s lucid drawing and keen compositions that are accentuated by the use of three horizontal panels per page throughout. This masterful condemnation of the cruelty and stupidity of war, created over the course of a decade, from 1982 to 1993, is a cri de coeur that stands out even amid Tardi s impressive body of work. "

Without a trace of sentimentality, Tardi's richly detailed and grimly rendered vignettes depict the horror, illness, cruel manipulations, and stupidity of this giant black spot in human history. --Mark Frauenfelder"

It's an impressive work of art that floods the reader with a feeling of hopelessness. How Tardi managed this feat without having participated in the first world war is really quite amazing. It is worth reading. --Sandy Bilus"

Many books have been written about World War I, but few can truly worm their way into your head like Jacques Tardi s It Was the War of the Trenches. The tales here are devastating and heartbreaking, and often disturbing, but readers will nonetheless have a hard time putting it down. --Holly Scudero"

This extraordinary collection of World War I tales offers perhaps the finest work from the lauded Tardi. ... Visceral, powerful, and effective, the flawless It Was The War of the Trenches blazes a new standard for the war comic. --Rick Klaw"

Reseña del editor:

World War I has long been an obsession of Jacques Tardi's. (His very first (rejected) comics story dealt with the subject, as does his most recent work, the two-volume Putain de Guerre.) But It Was the War of the Trenches is Tardi's defining, masterful statement on the subject. Tardi is not interested in the national politics, the strategies, or the battles: he focuses on the day to day of the grunts in the trenches, and, with icy, controlled fury and disgust, with sardonic yet deeply sympathetic narration, he brings that existence alive as no one has before or since. Yet he also delves deeply into the underlying causes of the war, the madness, the cynical political exploitation of patriotism. And in a final, heartbreaking coda, Tardi grimly itemizes the ghastly human cost of the war, and lays out the future 20th century conflicts, all of which seem to spring from this global burst of insanity. Trenches features some of Tardi's most stunning artwork. Rendered in a lush illustrative style, inspired both by abundant photographic documentation and classic American war comics, augmented by a sophisticated, gorgeous use of Craftint tones, Trenches is somehow simultaneously atypical for the artist and a perfect encapsulation of Tardi's mature style. It is the indisputable centerpiece of Tardi's oeuvre.
