9781606997178: Black Is The Color

In this graphic novella, a wicked mermaid lures a sailor to his doom.

Black is the Color begins with a 17th-century sailor abandoned at sea by his shipmates, and as it progresses he endures, and eventually succumbs to, both his lingering death sentence and the advances of a cruel and amorous mermaid. The narrative also explores the experiences of the loved ones he leaves behind, on his ship and at home on land, as well as of the mermaids who jadedly witness his destruction. At the heart of the story lie the dubious value of maintaining dignity to the detriment of intimacy, and the erotic potential of the worst-case scenario. Julia Gfrörer’s delicate drawing style perfectly complements the period era of Black is the Color, bringing the lyricism and romanticism of Gfrörer’s prose to the fore. Black is the Color is a book as seductive as the sirens it depicts. Black & white

About the Author:

Julia Gfrörer lives on Long Island, where she maintains an extensive collection of black cardigans. Her work has appeared in Kramer's Ergot and Best American Comics. She pronounces her name "gruh fare" but you can say it however you like.

Review:

Beautiful. Gfrorer has a light touch in finding the yearning and humor amongst life's hard luck and even harder truths. A genuinely romantic and sensitive book. --Sammy Harkham"

Julia Gfrorer is amongst the most promising artist/authors of her generation. Her work is spare and elegant, yet the hand of the artist is always evident in her line. Her characters inhabit cold or desolate environments, often on the brink of inanition or beyond, yet still yearning to love and be loved. Do not be misled by this artist's sylphlike appearance and those great carrot-colored ramparts at her ear. Gfrorer is a powerhouse. Learn to spell her name. --Phoebe Gloeckner"

[Gfrorer's] comic is aptly named Black Is the Color and it is beautiful. Beautiful in a way an H bomb is beautiful -- devastating -- but also glorious and full of light.... Black Is the Color illustrates the horror and banality of our existence -- and the beauty of our death... --Amie Maxwell"
