Watson and Gane reproduce the Bohemian Paris of the early 1950s, where Juliet, a penniless American art student, shares a flat with Paulette, a revolutionary with an extensive lingerie collection. To make ends meet, Juliet paints portraits of wealthy debutantes. One of her subjects is Deborah, a young woman trapped in the old social order of her wealthy family. Juliet herself has felt confined in the rigid academic structure of her art education and finds an unlikely kindred spirit in Deborah. And though Juliet wasn't expecting romance, this is Paris after all, where both inspiration and love abound. Juliet and Deborah's love for art bring them together, even as their friends and family try to drive them apart.

Andi Watson is a master of constructing tight, intimate moments that echo strongly in your own life, no matter how different the actual plot or characters he's thrown our way. Paris is no exception.

The protagonist - an American artist trying to study and make a living in Paris -- is constantly inspired by the city and pushed down by its denizens. Her skill and personality are delights, and only noticed by her roommate and the focus of her latest portrait job. Her teacher, the jerk classmate cruising her, and the tourists all seem to overlook who she is for who they want her to be. Her choice is not between being an artist and making a living; her choice is between being herself and being who they want her to be.

Paris is a wonder of a place -- modern and traditional, beautiful and draining, metropolitan and cozy, delightful and confusing, sophisticated and nostalgic. It leaves a mark. Watson's little book captures much of what I love -- and don't -- about the place. It's a short, tightly crafted comics piece.

This graphic novel was largely superficial. I found the relationships to be unbelieveable, and underdevloped. That being said, I did like the artwork, and the story idea was interesting. Unfortunately, I think it was unispired and fell flat. I would say pass on this book.

Since I'm a big fan of Andi Watson's work, it was inevitable that his most recent collection Paris would land on my list of best books of 2007. I didn't get a chance to review it properly until now, but it should come as no surprise that Watson once again does not disappoint, with an incredibly charming and atmospheric book featuring some of the most fantastically detailed black and white art I've seen in ages.

If you are at all familiar with the recent works of Andi Watson, like the "opposites attract" romance of 2002's Slow News Day or the marriage on tough times in 2001's Breakfast After Noon, then the subject matter and tone of Paris should similarly come as no surprise. Like many of Watson's other works, Paris is essentially a love story, this one focusing on Juliet, an American art student studying in the city of lights who is forced to paint portraits of spoiled little rich girls in order to pay her tuition. She is given yet another portraiture assignment, one she is not looking forward to until she meets her subject Deborah, a young British woman with a domineering aunt. Juliet and Deborah quickly bond, and as Juliet continues to work on the painting, her infatuation with Deborah grows.

Watson quickly demonstrates in Paris that, although he is spinning yet another tale of romance, he is able to make it unique by adding new twists to the formula. Here, Watson is dealing with a same-sex relationship, but he does not do so in such a way as to call attention to it as an "issue." He handles this subject matter with such a deft hand that Paris is, in the end, just like any other love story; it simply happens to feature two women. His handling of the class differences between Juliet and Deborah is equally subtle. At the beginning of the book, a story sequence which did not appear when the book was first published in comic form helps to establish the characters of Juliet and Deborah, each living in their separate worlds of poverty and privilege respectively, with very few words.

What really sets the story apart, however, is the incredibly striking art of Simon Gane. That Gane drew the book comes as a bit of a surprise since it's unusual for Watson to write a story and not draw it as well, but after you read the book, it's hard to imagine it without Gane's influence. His visuals of the city of Paris are idealized and romantic, setting the mood of the story perfectly. Each image, many of which come in the form of perfectly rendered full page splashes, transports you to this picturesque setting and makes you feel like love is quite literally in the air. Also, because Juliet is an art student, throughout the story we see paintings by artists of bygone eras, each one painstakingly recreated by Gane in exquisite detail.

Gane is currently the artist for the new Vertigo series Vinyl Underground, which he draws in a style that is slightly more realistic than his art in Paris, but still just as beautiful. Watson meanwhile has again returned to drawing his own stories, producing an issue of the incredibly sweet children's series Glister for Image every few months. This information should prove useful to you in the near future, because Paris is the kind of book that is so well-crafted you will not only love it, but you will instantly become a lifelong fan of everyone involved in its creation.

I picked this up on a lark at San Diego Comic-Con while browsing the SLG Publishing booth. I was interested by the story of an American woman living a Bohemian artist's life in Paris who falls in love with a aristocratic British woman. The story and the characters are simple and I was able to read it in on evening, but I went back afterwards to really study the illustrations which can be complex with lots of heavy lines. I especially enjoyed the cityscapes sprinkled throughout which have lots of characters and little tableaux going on. It's a sweet story, but a quick read.
