Paul en appartement Michel Rabagliati delivers another charming thinly veiled memoir Michel Rabagliati crafts stories that are easily accessible to both young adult and adult audiences with his semifictional protagonist
I really enjoyed reading Michel Rabagliati s for the first time It s a delight to read about this simple relationship so full of happiness I ll need to do a little background research to find out how autobiographical Rabagliati s novels are There is a photograph at the end of the book that is in the story If you want to read a graphic novel that will make you feel good, pick this one up Lovely illustrating too
Hmm Well, a comics woman I am in love with read this recently and was so bananas about it I got a copy and I OK It s got a beeeaaaauuutiful illustration style clean small bright tidy which is like my favorite aesthetic it s got sweetly tempered characters and a plot that just sort of hums and hems and hops along, not much of anything happening, just a little life, which is like my favorite kind of narrative But Aaaahhh It is so unfortunate that like almost right out of the gate there is serious [...]
J adore la s rie Paul Les petits moments que l auteur nous partage sont vraiment adorables La fin, toute en douceur, nous laisse sur une belle motion, comme si ce que les personnages ressentent se rendait jusqu au lecteur Vraiment une belle richesse pour notre litt rature qu b coise.
Didnt realize until I went to write up this review that this was the third book in a series Ooops Very readable as a standalone though, and since I picked this up second hand Im cutting myself some slack.I liked the art in this book, and found it to be an interesting look at the Montreal art world of the 80 s The setting is made distinct by regional references and french signs and backgrounds and is both serious and comical However it shares an issue that Tintin, the comic the book frequently re [...]
This doesn t carry the same weight as Paul Has a Summer Job The graphics are well crafted, but the story reads like a sit com than dramatic ficiton More comparable to Lynn Johnston s For Better or For Worse comic strip series While the basic themes and topics of the novel are weighty, the comic relief of a tweeting pet bird and children s antics distract from the development of the relationship of the two main characters Not that their relationship develops much I enjoyed reading this, but was [...]
This Canadian artist s thinly veiled auto bio comic is tightly drawn and loosely narrated with a certain casual charm The vaguely retro panels may be explained by the author s years in the graphic design trade The writing ambles through a series of amusing scenarios, managing to hold my interest without any strong plot line beyond the guy s fairly well adjusted coming of age In short No big deal of a story, but it won my heart with sheer amiability and excellent understated art.
Adorable is the only way to describe this I really liked the animation in the book as well The story didn t really go anywhere but it was well put together I d like to read other Paul stories now, reading this you get a real attachment to the characters and fall in love with them.
El primer tomo me encant , pero con este me he enamorado definitivamente del mundo de Michel Rabagliati.
C tait mon premier Paul oui, je vivais sous une roche depuis belle lurette J ai beaucoup aim C est une lecture simple, l g re et attendrissante Je vais certainement lire d autres Paul.Lequel me recommandez vous

C est la BD qui signale le d but de la vie adulte de Paul C est dommage que je n aie jamais visit Montr al, car l histoire y se d roule et j aurais pu identifier des endroits tels que le Parc La Fontaine et le Mont Royal faudrait que quelqu un se mette crire et dessiner la version Vancouverienne Sinon, il y a des moments dans la BD qui m ont fait me souvenir des anecdotes qui me sont arriv es dans le pass et que j avais oubli C est a que j aime dans la s rie de Paul Rabagliati, le d clencheur de [...]
Here s my entry point into the acclaimed series by Rabagliati Overall, I am left with mixed impressions I was intrigued and enjoyed it sufficiently to read the other titles of the series, but I also hope that is not the best of it.The story takes place in the early 80s, with Paul and his girlfriend moving into their own apartment, but is also relating via flashbacks how he met his girlfriend and part of his first steps into adulthood.The story feels like a snapshot of normal life, with nothing r [...]
After having previously read Paul Goes Fishing original French title Paul la p che 2006 , Paul Has a Summer Job original French title Paul a un travail d t 2002 , and Paul Joins the Scouts original French title Paul au Parc 2011 , I have now read Paul Moves Out original French title Paul en appartement 2005 , which in a manner of speaking pretty much picks up where Paul Has a Summer Job left off.Rabagliati s semi autobiographical alter ego Paul goes to graphic design school and meets his future [...]
Well for a Michel Rabagliati virgin, Paul Moves Out is such a delight It was insightful, since I m looking for a career in design myself Quite informative if you ask me The illustrations were pretty nice and is what I would normally expect from a comic strip I have a feeling that this might be an autobiography with a few fictional elements to it, nevertheless this was an enjoyable read Fictional or not, it gave me a really great time reading it For the substance though, it s basically just a fee [...]
In this volume Paul moves into his first apartment with his girlfriend, attends graphic design school and babysits 2 little girl with endless energy I liked the simplicity of this book Paul moves into an apartment and has very few possessions, but he is pretty happy There s a lot of focus on how the introduction of a new professor at the design school effects the program and Paul s education as both a student and a human The scenes that depict Paul babysitting are among my favorite in this book [...]
This graphic novel was very strange Almost like a semi autobiographical look at the authors life in his early twenties It s about a boy named Paul and a girl named Lucie who meet in college while learning the beautiful trade of graphic design There first year was mostly learning old techniques on drawing and then they get a new gay teacher that broadens their minds with new age color drawings and logo designs Yada yada the gay teacher enlightens them with a trip to New York to see modern art and [...]
Paul commence maintenant sa vie d adulte et emm nage en appartement avec sa copine Lucie On a droit un flashback sur leur rencontre l cole de design graphique Ensuite on revient au pr sent pour raconter leur quotidien dans leur nouvelle vie Le plus marquant est lorsqu ils doivent garder les ni ces de Lucie.Michel Rabagliati a ce don de raconter des histoires la fois comiques et touchantes Il saisi bien le quotidien des nouveaux couples et de leur passage en appartement Dans plusieurs sc nes, je [...]
Written with Rabagliati s usual rigors, but in this volume he fails to fully realize his central theme with his characteristic clarity, like he did in his first two books so brilliantly The result is an enjoyable, but ultimately unfocused read, which you wish would have taken a few steps into being as brilliant as the first two books, Paul In the Country and Paul Has A Summer Job An entertaining read, but not quite as emotionally rewarding.
Not quite as great as Paul Has a Summer Job, but still well worth reading Rabagliati s drawing style is beautiful clean, graceful lines and perfectly detailed interiors that don t suffer from cramped meticulousness is that a word You care about these characters, who are familiar and flawed but not as self loathing as many others in this genre I m anxiously awaiting the next one, due in March 08.
Michel Rabagliatin kolmas Paul tarina ei yll aivan edelt jiens tasolle, mutta on silti kaunis tarina taas yhdest askeleesta kohti aikuisuutta Sarjakuvassa muistellaan t ll kertaa opiskeluvuosia, tulevaan vaimoon tutustumista sek ensimm ist yhteist asuntoa Haaveet perheen perustamisesta nousevat my s pintaan sukulaislasten vieraillessa Paul Moves Out on my s jonkinlainen kunnianosoitus suurelle H rgelle.
Premi re lecture de BD depuis l enfance Je pensais que je n arriverais jamais aimer le roman graphique Et l exp rience m a agr ablement surprise Rire toute seule dans ma chambre Oui L ensemble est plut t anecdotique, des r cits d v nements ordinaires de la vie et pas mal de pointes d humour Bons dessins, les angles et les d tails sont originaux Mais il y a parfois des longueurs on sent que le b d iste s essoufle.
This is a coming of age story about a nice, calm young man from living in Canada It touches on some sensitive issues a straight guy getting hit on by his older gay teacher, a heterosexual couple moving in together, the possible desire to have children without ever getting graphic I understand why it was in the young adult section of the public library But the art is really good and I did not feel disappointed when I finished reading it.
I m enjoying this series but there is a distinct bourgeois undertone that creeps in from time to time, not to mention questionable small p political nuances that I find distasteful I can t quite put my finger on what it is that puts me off though, it just feels a little reactionary at times I certainly did not like the way that the Vietnamese family or homeless people were portrayed.
Quelques ann es ont pass et Paul vit maintenant en appartement avec Lucie, sa petite amie Petit retour en arri re et l on apprend que Paul est retourn sur les bancs d cole o il rencontrera Lucie Cette BD est d cid ment formidable et dans chaque livre, je replonge dans mes propres souvenirs
Purely an emotional rating from someone who fell in love with, and in, Montreal What a sweet thrill to see the places we d walk by daily and what a charming and delightful slice of life It was a rough breakup but it s over and at least I have this series and my husband from it.
This quaint slice of life graphic novel depicts a young couple s experiences at design school and living together It had potential, but I was disappointed that I didn t get to know the characters in greater depth I won t be reading others in the series.
In this episode of Rabagliati s fictional comics autobiography, Paul meets Lucie, gets started as a graphic designer, and moves into an apartment This one is just as fascinatingly detailed and enjoyable as the other two.
