Phil writes: The rabbit James Hardin trudges through the snow at midnight with an envelope of stolen documents. A small resistance movement holds up in a shack in the mountains, a train leaves in three days, and a young rabbit longs to take up his father's war. That's really everything I want to say about Iron's story - if I don't already have you at anthropomorphic John LeCarre', I don't know what else to tell you. Another debut graphic novel to cap off a year full of stellar first books, S. M. Vidaurri exercises the sweetest restraint in his telling of Iron. The dialogue is sparse and exacting, the art deliciously minimal, everything blanketed in snow and fog and shadows - one beautiful wash painting after another, Vidaurri builds a palpable dread and isolation in his fantasy take on postwar Europe. Understatement is his greatest trick here: his rabbits, crows, frogs and tigers barely emote, and body language is similarly deadpan. The effect is incredibly powerful, as each character weathers their various tragedies, tortures, losses and deaths with a stoic melancholy.Iron, or: The War After is an exemplary fable of a war inherited by its orphans, told sensitively and sadly. A subtle little gem from an author/illustrator to watch.
