Présentation de l'éditeur

2014 Hugo Award finalist for Best Graphic Story

Based on the short story by George R.R. Martin, bestselling author of A Game of Thrones, Meathouse Man is a darkly poignant tale set on a collection of planets called corpse worlds. On these planets, corpse handlers transmit their wills to an army of brainless bodies—once living people now rendered expendable. Perversion abounds as these corpses are exposed to appalling conditions at the whim of handlers.

The grim story follows one such handler—a man who remains nameless—through his teenage years and into adulthood, across corpse brothels, monotonous jobs, heartbreak, and betrayals. His increased detachment from reality becomes a spiraling descent into rejection and desensitization to the horrors around him. Set among towering buildings, giant rolling planetary processing units, and vast forest terrains on several different worlds, this journey serves as a modern fable of warning and a fascinating exploration of an alternate world perhaps not so different from our own.

This comic contains explicit content and is recommended for mature readers.

Biographie de l'auteur

George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid ’90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.

Raya Golden has a unique, stylized vision and brings her work into the world using a variety of mediums ranging from watercolors to digital multi-media. She was born in Manhattan and has slowly made her way across the United States in a steady jaunt westward. She currently resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her boyfriend, Tyler, and her cat, Mr. Boogie.

Meathouse Man is a beautiful graphic novel. I was patient and took my time, and I feel I enjoyed it a lot more than if I had skimmed it. Zoom in close to the panels and you'll see that the illustrations are meticulously detailed (not at all like Archie, as one reviewer suggested). The art is loud and colorful on the outside, subtle if you pay attention. For example, color intensity seems to be keyed to the protagonist's mental health. Also zoom in and check out the crowd scenes. The story (by George R. R. Martin) is dark and unpleasant, and like the artwork has more going on than is obvious. There are questions in the narrative that aren't asked explicitly, such as why the lead character keeps giving up on other people. The answers aren't provided either, so the book is great fodder for a late-night conversation. Take some time and debate it with a friend. It might not be the author's most enduring work, but it's a good read, beautifully illustrated, and certainly food for thought.

Overall, I really enjoyed this novel(ette) in comic book form. The drawings and colours looked really good, matched the story, and we're suitably gloomy. I've not read the prose version before, so came to it fresh. As usual with Martin, the story is unpredictable, the world building is quickly done and the ending is powerful.

The second page of the story elicited an oral, "Whaaaaaaaaaaa....?!" Page 5-ish made one of the most disturbing paraphilias a little less repugnant, at least for the purposes of this story; if you're tempted to put it down after page 2, if you like the genre try just a couple more pages. (This is not to say that the story was not disturbing or somehow all right or acceptable in any healthy person's view.) Keyword is story, follow that up with fictitious, and a very dark view of a dystopian future (whether ours or a parallel evolution) has been rendered. Complete with pictures. Pictures I don't need to see again...

Underneath it is the story of a man who knows he can be, and wants to be better. He tries. He gives up. It's because of this pattern of quitting his career at the end of the story so ironic (I won't reveal it here, don't want to leave spoilers).

Yes, as many reviews of the graphic novel have mentioned, misogyny runs through the course of the story, both in plot and picture. However, in the case of Meathouse Man, I believe that it was purposefully included to tell the story and cast a proper light on the bleakness of the world of the protagonist. I have railed against authors in previous reviews because of blatant mysogyny screaming at me from the pages. I feel you can tell when the personal beliefs or views of writer come blasting through their prose vs. when a message is being sent. I wasn't offended by the mysogyny in Meathouse Man because it felt like it was being used as a device not only of description, but of warning - to tell us to watch out where things could be going.

Story very dark but a interesting change from Martin's fantasy works. Art is gorgeous and unique and compliments the narrative in stunning fashion! Cant wait to see ore from this duo!

The story is as dark, as bleak, a view of human nature and driving desires as can be expected from George R. R. Martin. Still, as true to his work, the premise of the tale does make one consider the possible turn of events that might force one from their humanity, even as it is told using the impossibility of science-fiction. I appreciate that this version is not over embellished. Here, the story is concisely told and allows space for the readers imagination. What details are abandoned from the original short story are described or hinted at by the illustrations. Raya Golden's use of saturated colors is a magnificent mood-setting tool, allowing the emotional content of what is in-between the lines to envelope the reader, and thankfully, her illustrations are fanciful enough so as not to make the story un-stomachable. I am glad I purchased this story, and think I will be able to go back to it again, at least to admire R. Golden's work after the story has fully permeated. This is my first digital graphic comic, and I am pleased with it. I am excited to see how this medium will develop.
