Oximação as figuras misteriosas desaparecem Logo eles percebem ue as sombras estão ali para buscar Joachim Recusando se a aceitar esse fato o pai foge com o filho em uma viagem febril e desesperada sempre com as sinistras sombras em seu encalçoJoachim deixa assim seu. A farmer his wife and their young son live an idyllic life on their farm in the country Until one day three ominous horsemen appear in the hills getting closer to the house every day They’ve come for the boy So begins a desperate game of cat and mouse as the farmer tries to save his son from his fate running from the horsemen across land and sea but can anyone outrun Death Cyril Pedrosa’s Three Shadows is a decent but flawed comic The story takes a while to get going but once the father and son hit the road and run from the eerie Nazgul esue horsemen it gets exciting In a weirdly synchronous way once they make it aboard the ship and stop running the narrative also runs out of momentum and stagnates Then the whole thing goes completely off the rails in the final act with Pedrosa switching perspectives and pursuing a strange tangent before returning to conclude the main storyline with the farmer The book comes from a place of real heart inspired by Pedrosa’s close friends’ watching their child die very young but he can’t really sustain a 270 page book out of that difficult concept The father and son run from the horsemen and that’s it really Sure other things happen but I wouldn’t say they were that interesting or added to the overall theme and could’ve easily been lost with no effect to the story Pedrosa definitely puts across the intensity of the father’s will to save his son really powerfully though you believe he’ll do anything to save him I enjoyed the art the most Pedrosa is a former Disney animator and the skill is right there to see on the page The characters’ movements are perfectly captured and fluid and his range is exceptional from the natural beauty of the countryside to the city to the crowded docks the boat and everything after and in between It’s black and white and done almost sketch style as you might expect from a former animator in pencils inks and charcoal and it’s really impressiveIf it were shorter and focused Three Shadows might be a better book As it is it’s not bad though Pedrosa has to pad the thin story with a lot of unnecessary subplots to keep the reader engaged And that final act was a helluva mess at a crucial point in the story instead of feeling the emotion of the characters I was puzzled as to what was happening In the end Three Shadows is an ok allegorical fantasy adventure with just a few too many narrative problems to keep it from being great

Kids from time to time will die from terrible conditions that for better or worse will give parents a good space of time in which to uietly go mad Leukemia cancer some horrible incurable disease that causes the body to slowly shut down It happens And it's always distasteful And Cyril Pedrosa made a comic about itIt's times like this that the term comic is grossly inadeuate as a descriptor of what it hopes to describeI am the father of a young daughter and the possibility of losing her haunts me It's completely unreasonable I live in Southern California and the probability that my daughter will at least get a full two decades of life is ridiculously high I know this And yet every morning I wake up and wonder if this will be it if this will be the last day I get to enjoy my child The thought is ever only fleeting and I don't spend my days weighted by a morbid gloom but nonetheless the fear exists and is powerful enough to assert its presence dailyOne might reasonably presume that I would suffer some trouble while reading what amounts to a story concerning principally a father's reaction to the news that his only child will soon die I didn't And it may be to Pedrosa's credit that I could read through what should be some morbid morbid stuff without curling up in a ball and hating the world for what it does to unlucky families Three Shadows for all its heartbreak really is a wonderful work Pedrosa's art is dynamic and assured balancing a deep naturalism with necessary storytelling chops I want to see of his work and I want to see it now His visual sense than compensates for how little dialogue wanders through his book Certainly Pedrosa uses words but often than not he simply uses his pagework to bring texture and life to his story about deathAny work about such a darkly emotional topic will find itself hounded by one great threat the danger of becoming a cheap sentimentalist ploy A full ninety three percent of movies about dogs fall into this trap Easy manipulation Contrived heartbreak Formulaic beats As Hollywood shows us at least yearly hammering on heartstrings to get a reaction and jerk some tears is child's play for even incompetent writers Pedrosa could have gone this route and let his artwork trick us into thinking we were reading something great and whelming He fortunately is better than that Three Shadows cloaks the misery of an unpreventable death in an almost faerytale garment Joauim doesn't start coughing up flecks of blood or feeling unbearably lethargic or getting shockingly sudden headaches that knock him off his feet Instead he one day sees three dark riders watching him from the distance While at first they simply seem to ride off causing his parents to laugh off their concerns the family soon finds that Joauim's every movement is haunted by these dark horsemen Lise is petrified and torn apart by her inability to care for her son Louis a man of tremendous power is broken by his inability to protect his son And uickly Three Shadows becomes an exploration of how two parents might react to terrible newsPedrosa's book balances between whimsical fantasy elements and the darkness of real world tragedies delivering something closer to a meditation on impending loss than a critiue of how one might deal with such an inherently counter rational experience Despite its subject matter Three Shadows never threatens to be than one can take If anything its lessons are delivered gently and with deep empathyoriginally reviewed at Good Ok Bad
