5,000 Kilometers Per Second
5,000 Kilometers Per Second | Manuele Fior
7 posts | 9 read | 1 reading | 4 to read
5,000 Kilometers Per Second tells - or almost tells - the love story between Piero and Lucia, which begins with a casual glance exchanged by teenagers across the street through a window and ends with a last, desperate hook-up between two older, sadder one-time lovers. Executed in stunning watercolours and broken down into five chapters, this story only refers to the actual romance obliquely, focusing instead on its first stirrings and episodes in their life during which they are separated - a narrative twist that makes it even more poignant and heart wrenching.

Mehso-so

It's not a Pick, but it's more than just So-So..
The artwork is stunning! It deserves all the stars.. But the plot isn't particularly original, and overall it felt like I've read a resumed story, just the essential.

Mehso-so

This graphic novel was so-so for me. It‘s about a couple from their first meeting until their last. It is sad and bittersweet, focusing mostly on the bad parts of relationships. The artwork is beautiful watercolors and very monochromatic but the story and characters lacked depth.
