9781939799104: Frank Santoro: Pompeii

Frank Santoro’s latest graphic novel--his first in six years--takes place just before the eruption of Pompeii in 79 AD. The story follows Marcus, a young expat artist from Paestum who works as an assistant to Flavius, a seemingly well-regarded painter. Aside from mixing paint, Marcus is entangled in the older artist’s romantic deceptions, while stuck figuring out his own. Nicole Rudick wrote of this work in The Comics Journal: “Santoro’s drawings are wonderful; his reduction of figures to tone and line and shape recall illusionistic Roman frescoes and the drawings of Giacometti and Émile Bernard, but endowed with comic-strip dynamism. But if Pompeii were just a series of clever sight lines and intriguing artwork, it would not be as satisfying [...] the story’s physical structure is married to its themes, and to be aware of one is to be more appreciative of the other.”

From Publishers Weekly :

As the geometric delineations surrounding a trio of Greco-Roman busts on the cover suggest, Santoro's latest is composed with an attentiveness toward structure, both narrative and aesthetic. The story centers on Marcus, a young painter's apprentice in Pompeii, who must abet his master's lascivious endeavors while dealing with his own personal frustrations, all just days before the historic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. Working off a basic three-tiered layout, Santoro employs subtle visual symmetry and careful composition in each spread to move the reader along what is a fairly mundane and (because of its inevitable conclusion) inconsequential plot. However, like the art, which forgoes technical polish for rough spontaneity, the story finds its strength in form rather than content. Such formal juxtapositions include two overlapping love triangles, master-vs.-servant/old-vs.-young dichotomies, and the eternal vs. the ephemeral. Awareness of said infrastructure not only enhances the reading experience, but also provides an illuminating blueprint to sequential art in general. (Sept.)

Review :

Santoro is a consummate storyteller, one whose work is as much about flesh as form. The ironies that converge and the tendernesses that emerge as the volcanic disaster approaches and occurs, and the sheer horror of its devastation, raise history to the level of art. (Adam McGovern Los Angeles Review of Books)
