Book #20 of 2015: LOVE volume 2: THE FOX

LOVE volume 2: THE FOX by Frederic Bertolucci
Rating: Liked (Hated-Disliked-Okay-Liked-Loved)

Book received free for review from Diamond Book Distributors.

Note: Amazon link goes to German version, cover image also from German. There's no English version available from Amazon yet.

I loved the first volume of Love (reviewed by me here), so when the second was offered for review, I jumped at it. It's done in the same style: No text, the whole story is told through the art. While that had been fully successful in the first book, this second one didn't hit as high of a mark story-wise, though the art was just as beautiful if not even better.

The story was about a fox. It lived in some snowy area, but then a volcano exploded and threw a bunch of animals together as they tried to escape and survive. While Tiger, the first volume, told one animal's life, this second one seemed to be about the area in general. There were a number of pages about undersea animals, no way for the fox to have seen what was happening there.

The art was so lovely, I really didn't mind not following the story as well.

I love the perspective, how this looks like a photo might look:

Random animal encounters:

The bear-vs-bear fight went on for a while:

The whole book was just so pretty:

Last time I posted an image from a graphic novel, no one asked me to take it down, so I'm going to assume it's okay to use a few images. Copyright of course belongs to the author and publisher, please don't use them elsewhere without credit.

I see there's a third volume of Love out, in French, one based on lions. Hopefully I'll be able to review that one as well, once it's available in English.
