Inhaltsangabe zu „Light“ von Rob Cham

Light is a silent graphic novel that follows a pair of adventurers on an epic quest to collect five magic gems from deep inside the earth and bring them to the surface to return color to the world. On the way they carry fire-lit torches through secret places and endless passages, swim in crystal-clear waters, encounter strange beasts and creatures, and meet strange mysterious hermits! Writer/Artist Rob Cham creates beautiful vivid illustrations that gradually evolve from black and white subterranean worlds to vivid bright colorscapes. This inspiring all-ages story recalls retro video-game vibes and role playing games, creating a one-of-a-kind mythos of magic lands and mischievous critters.

    Light is a comic that works without words - and perfectly so. A little guy (which reminds me of Bone) embarks on a journey into a vast cave system, following a treasure map which guides him to several colorful jewels. Of course, he encounters a number of strange creatures, most of which are not happy about his appearance and motive. But then he makes a friend along the way and towards the end can also rely on the help of some of the creatures.The story takes great advantage of contrasts and colors, starting with bold black and white pictures and adding color with each found jewel until the end which appears like a real color explosion. There are not detailed facial features, but it is always easy to determine the current mood by body language and the surrounding scene.Its expressive use of light, shadow and color makes this cute little story a real treat for the eyes.(Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
