    1. If any of you are even familiar with Dave McKean's work you would know that this graphic novel is exceptional. Reason being this one in particular is very personal to him and a manifesto on imagination/creation (from the micro = artistic to the macro = a suggestion or anecdote of how the world came about, that is in no way religious). It's quite slow in the beginning, I had the impression I was reading a film but incredible how he captures the reader.A must read for artists questioning themselve [...]

    2. Un pur chef d’œuvre, à lire absolument. Peut-être un peu difficile d'accès pour les lecteurs de BD franco-belges, un effort à faire.

Dave McKean est des grands artistes du monde de la bd, bizarrement pas si connu en France, qui fut un des premiers à mêler dessins, photos, collages et à utiliser photoshop pour autre ch [...]

    5. I would like to point out that, if you are looking for the complete hardcover Dave Mc Kean's "Cages", this one isn't: it's just "Cages #2", one of the ten original comics. After having been deceived by the title of this page, I tried to change its title, but it seems that are just refusing to be competent concerning this not-well-known and not-much-browsed-for product.Je voudrais juste signaler que cet article, malgré son intitulé imprécis, n'est pas l'édition intégrale de "Cages", mais j [...]
