    This graphic novel adapts a World Fantasy Award novella, Hypothetical Lizard about Som Som, a young prostitute working in a brothel frequented by wizards It s adapted by Antony Johnson and illustrated in black and white by Lorenzo Lorente and Sebastian Fiumara and this volume also contains the original story, which I read to help me clarify what is going on, because it s opaque, ethereal, mysterious, all that It s fantasy with some real darkness in it And magic, and a kind of Faustian bargain This graphic novel adapts a World Fantasy Award novella, Hypothetical Lizard about Som Som, a young prostitute working in a brothel frequented by wizards It s adapted by Antony Johnson and illustrated in black and white by Lorenzo Lorente and Sebastian Fiumara and this volume also contains the original story, which I read to help me clarify what is going on, because it s opaque, ethereal, mysterious, all that It s fantasy with some real darkness in it And magic, and a kind of Faustian bargain for knowledge And sexuality, some dark eroticism The brothel is frequented by wizards, and Som Som has particular interest in what wizards know, so she is willing to exchange things for this knowledge She gives up her ability to speak and act through cosmetic and brain surgery in exchange for an ability to know such secrets She can still see and hear She wears a porcelain mask on half of her face, so there s a yin yang or comedy tragedy dramatic effect Som Som is also fascinated horrified by one tale of psychological domination she is aware of, acts of revenge on her friend Rawra Chin by Chin s lover In order to have her lover, Rawra gives up certain things which she is willing to do A psychological bargain, which becomes the focus of the story even as it becomes abusive I ve read it now a couple times and I am surprised I had never heard of it before Probably because I mainly know Moore s graphic work and this is never mentioned as among the best But I think its award winning reputation as a fantasy story is well deserved And as a graphic adaptation, it fits the tone of the story It s both a little horrifying and quite haunting, finally, a tale of domination and what you may be willing to give up for love knowledge, something we see in both Som Som and Rawra I think it s really great work, overall, fascinating and mysterious

    This is an incredible work I find that even to try and describe what A Hypothetical Lizard is about puts me under significant introspective strain It is a mirror maze of love, sex, betrayal, identity, magic and fantasy packaged in a copper ball of existentialism You ll know what I mean when you read it If you think all that seems like a lot to accomplish in a graphic novella adapted from a short story, you probably did not read the name of the author Alan Moore s writing is so hypnotical This is an incredible work I find that even to try and describe what A Hypothetical Lizard is about puts me under significant introspective strain It is a mirror maze of love, sex, betrayal, identity, magic and fantasy packaged in a copper ball of existentialism You ll know what I mean when you read it If you think all that seems like a lot to accomplish in a graphic novella adapted from a short story, you probably did not read the name of the author Alan Moore s writing is so hypnotically brilliant that it threatens to render the art unnecessary, but Lorenzo Lorente s beautiful and ghostly pencil work acts a sieve that crystallizes the exquisite prose.And how can you resist a title as good as that

    As much as I like Alan Moore s comics I really do love his prose So I bought this as it was a short story, and included the story as well as a comic adaptation of the story I read the story first and really loved it It was a depressing story about your sense of self, freedom, choice and had a transgender main character The prose was lovely and created this wonderful vivid world and people The comic I thought would never be able to hold up to the way I imagined it and it didn t It cut out b As much as I like Alan Moore s comics I really do love his prose So I bought this as it was a short story, and included the story as well as a comic adaptation of the story I read the story first and really loved it It was a depressing story about your sense of self, freedom, choice and had a transgender main character The prose was lovely and created this wonderful vivid world and people The comic I thought would never be able to hold up to the way I imagined it and it didn t It cut out bits and the Rawra Chin was not nearly beautiful enough That said I really did like the story and would definitely recommend it

    I read it cover to cover in the dead of night when I should very much have been asleep When I first put it down I thought, wow I did NOT like that one And then I thought but why, what s not to like And then I realized that I found myself doubly attracted and disgusted by much the same elements of the story And then I thought on it and thought that that was a pretty good feat, which shud come aroundoften This is good horror.I quite liked the little conundrum that wraps around th I read it cover to cover in the dead of night when I should very much have been asleep When I first put it down I thought, wow I did NOT like that one And then I thought but why, what s not to like And then I realized that I found myself doubly attracted and disgusted by much the same elements of the story And then I thought on it and thought that that was a pretty good feat, which shud come aroundoften This is good horror.I quite liked the little conundrum that wraps around the story And I think that I think that More s amalgamation of so many genres mystery, horror, drama, tragedy and fantasy was quite smashingly done, all while nodding to one of my fav horror novellas of all time.And all is well that ends well, I always say.and this one quite does Well, to my mind anyway.Final verdict this one is pretty fun

    It would have been perfectly possible not to set this story in a brothel Moore s becoming a bit like Frank Miller, eh wot Corpos callosum righty ho Amazing concepts, stunning metaphors, twisted love story Basically a short story set to images The art is functional, somewhat stylish, a bit limited in imagination But it works.

    La cantidad y la calidad de im genes mentales que Alan Moore consigue provocar es fant stica Hasta ahora solo hab a le do comics suyos, pero me ha gustado mucho m s como novelista.Eso s , el que haya ilustrado la portada de la edici n de Planeta, y el que haya escrito la sinopsis al reverso no se han le do el libro Nada que ver con lo que hay escrito.
