After returning home for his mother’s funeral, Erik finds a photograph of a musician among her possessions that leads him down a rabbit hole trying to learn the man’s identity. As he begins to investigate Erik finds his very reality coming apart around him, as events become more surreal and nightmarish at each turn.
Ram V is one of the most interesting creators in comics right now, bringing a unique voice to his writing and ideas that really haven’t been seen before, Blue In Green immediately falls into that description; a standalone graphic novel with a great amount of depth and mystery. Like many of Ram’s other works I feel that Blue In Green easily deserves repeat readings as I suspect there’ll always be something more to the narrative that you’ve missed the previous time. Equally Anand RK’s art is stunning throughout the book, taking on a very different tone to his previous work with Ram V in Grafity’s Wall with a great deal of texture, reminiscent of Dave McKean’s comic art.
