Largo Winch 16

December 10, 2008 at 4:34 am Leave a comment

I enjoyed reading the 16th volume of the ongoing series Largo Winch. Just like I’ll always go a see a James Bond movie for the action, the gadgets and the Bond Girls, I’ve read all the Largo Winch albums for the action, the sexy girls, the almost impossible change of situations in the mafia like world of international business where Largo is pursuing his dad’s business he inherited in the first album.

Just like the other 15 albums, there is a lot of text to explain the somewhat convoluted story only interrupted by a few action packed pages every so often – just like the Bond films. The style is fairly classical, both concerning coloring, text, layout and framing. The drawings are realistic and the excitement and fantasy is in the plot not in the pictures. Don’t misunderstand me, I love the series and will remain a fan forever. Actually I learning to admire the different stories and styles of Van Hamme, but more about this in another post.

This album and the series in general, has enough punch and plot to make a good film(s)… tbc 🙂
