Ye, by Guilherme Petreca, is a really gorgeous book; the art is idiosyncraticboth cartoony and lushand lends itself very well to the fable/fairy tale-esque storytelling regarding a mostly mute man who is grappling with the influence of The Colorless Kingwhich is revealed, at least for Ye, to be something close to PTSD. It’s an interesting mix of modern (planes and trains) and antiquated (pirates and witches), which could give it a post-apocalypse feel, but more casts it as a modern parable.

What’s best about Ye is Petreca’s artthe world building, the use of shadow and space on a page, how every panel conveys more meaning and emotion than the sum of its parts. If the lesson itself isn’t jaw-droppingly original, at least the way we get therethrough an interesting, hodgepodge world rendered in an artist’s singular styledefinitely is. (
