Aug 16, Scarlet Cameo rated it it was amazing. English review at the bottom En el Andrew Kolb nos presento un maravilloso homenaje a David Bowie: Algo que creo que se debe aclarar es que no es precisamente un cuento infantil, es una historia i English review at the bottom En el Andrew Kolb nos presento un maravilloso homenaje a David Bowie: While all text is exactly the song’s lyrics, Kolb’s merit was create a visual story, where the images not only adapt to the letter, but have life by themselves.
Something I think you should clarify is that it is not just a children’s tale, is an illustrated story that shows how the illustrator performed the song, Could it has done more “dreamy”? Of course, as it could also be darker by the end of Major Tom, but that will be the work of someone else cause they have to visualize the lyrics in another way, for my part I think the way it is done is pretty cute, tender and maintains the tone and essence of Bowie.
