The One Hundred Nights of Hero by Greenberg Isabel
In the custom of The Arabian Nights, a flawlessly shown embroidered artwork of cultural stories and fantasies about the mysterious tradition of female narrators in an envisioned middle age world. In the Empire of Migdal Bavel, Cherry is hitched to Jerome, a devilish man who makes an underhanded bet with his companion Manfred: on the off chance that Manfred can entice Cherry in 100 evenings, he can have his castleand Cherry. Yet, what Jerome cannot deny is that Cherry is enamored with her servant Hero. The two ladies incubate an arrangement: Hero, an individual from the League of Secret Story Tellers, will divert Manfred by entertaining him with a hypnotizing story every night for 100 evenings, keeping him under control. Those stories are perfectly portrayed here, addressing topics of adoration and double-crossing and faithfulness and frenzy. As perplexing and luxuriously envisioned as crafted by Chris Ware, and raised with a dry mind that rivals Kate Beaton’s in Hark! A Vagrant, Isabel Greenberg’s One Hundred Nights of Hero will catch perusers’ hearts and brains, taking them through an otherworldly middle age world.
