BoingThere are books and movies that I hate but recommend to everybody They are good books and movies and often times are even great books and movies I recommend them because they are good or great I am able to recognize their nearness to whatever we might be tempted to describe as objective uality They are well composed and well accomplished Their artistry is evident and clear And than that they speak to some integral aspect of the human condition They through craft and talent and effort and grace say something to the alert reader and often something valuable to the proposal of How should we then liveI recommend these books and movies often and without hesitation Because it is right to do so And yet these books and movies I m talking about I hate them Because ignorance is blissful Because I have a heart Because I am empathetic Because I am tuned in to our existence and its fragilities Because I am not immune to horror or terror Because the metaphorical nights are long and they threaten always the metaphorical days Because I too like many of you can be undone by simple stories told wellOne of the great glories of the comics medium and one that is continually being probed and explored is its ability to propose a visual narrative reflection of psychological phenomena Dreams visions thoughts emotives This has been especially useful in comics navigation of mental disorders1 Comics offer all the toolbox of a relentless CGI but married to a character driven Dogme 95 production Comics can do anything and that paves the way to a complex psychological narrative one that unveils effortlessly to the readerMeaning that authors can vividly convey states of being and mind that would be otherwise difficult or costly in other media And Paco Roca uses this gift of the medium to wring out the experiential nature of the elderly in a home for those gradually giving in to the disenfranchisement of the mind suffering through troubles as benign as simple senility or as aggressive as Alzheimer s He does a fantastic job conveying lives surrendered to permanent convalescence He does such a good job in fact that I hate Wrinkles I hate it because it is so good and you should definitely read itWhen I was younger say twenty one or so my brother read me an account of an unpopular man in the 1600s who had been driven from a town while being pelted with stones As a result of the injuries to the man s head his personality character and beliefs changed He was unmade and remade because of a bad afternoon Years later he reverted again to his former self but for me the damage was well accomplished Before I had kids2 my only real fear in life was losing who I was to some catastrophe like brain injury or to one of the many handfuls of maladies that assault those of old age Cognition the particular way that I perceive the world who I am those are the essentialities to my existence After all if I am not me then who on earth am IIn Wrinkles Paco Roca underlines circles highlights and writes in the margins of my fear His protagonist Ernest is an older gentleman a former bank branch manager who suffers from Alzheimer s though he rarely seems cognizant of his own suffering The text begins with his admission to an assisted care facility euipped to interact with tenants of varying degrees of dementia Ernest s case when compared with some of the other guests seems almost benign Ernest will live out the remainder of his days here a life mediated through the fog of medicationsRoca uses the toolset of comics to seamlessly transport guests of the home into the world as they are experiencing it In one moment a man is seventy two and standing alone in a foyer and in the next he is six and is stood up awkwardly before a room of his new classmates A woman is pictured seated by the window in her wheel chair old and haggard in the prior panel she is a young woman of beauty and elegance riding the window seat of the Orient Express Another resident sees members of the Legion everywhere Another is transported again and again to the moment when he secured the heart of the love of his lifeThis is excerpted from one of the the happiest most sublime most tragic moments in the book It made my heart soar and drown simultaneouslyThe drama of daily living with a fading mind is told with humour and verve and a lightness of being And I found myself growing and anxious These amusing anecdotes and funny bits and pieces of lives gone askew were toying with my deepest and tremblingest insecurities On the surface I was enjoying Roca s book and the story of Ernest s progressive psychological collapse It s bright and colourful and lovely and well illustrated and well paced3 But in the midst of my enjoyment the terror of existence roiled and rumbled By the end I was panicked and undone Roca had done so good a job of exploring the gradual dissolution of selves that I was entirely exposed my oldest fear made raw and calamitous all within one hundred pages in which nothing incredibly terrible happens save for that a handful of people gradually forget themselves And that s the magic of storyReview courtesy of Good Ok BadFootnotes1 EXAMPLESGlyn Dillon s Nao of BrownDavid B s EpilepticJoe Kelly s I Kill Giants2 Now that I have children whom I cherish there are any number of terrors that stalk the corners of my waking existence Death cancer bullies leukemia pedophiles them growing up to not like me3 Though in what may approach a caveat I will warn that this story about elderly residents in a home like all stories about elderly residents in a home includes the obligatory escape from the home and joyride awhile trope It was the only moment for me that skirted being a false note But really if you re in a home waiting to die I d guess that this sort of thing probably actually happens not infreuently so I gave it a pass
