about this item

Babel is the long-awaited, unofficial sequel of sorts to David B.’s award-winning masterpiece, Epileptic. A boy’s world is shattered by his brother’s epileptic seizures and his growing awareness of turmoil in warring countries. As in Epileptic, David B. focuses on his relationship with his ailing brother, but delves deeper into their fantasy life and obsession with history. The two become fascinated by the Papuan Wars, and David discovers odd metaphorical parallels between those long-ago events and rituals and his brother’s struggle with his disease. The stunning two-color artwork evokes an extraordinary range of influences, from the boldness of primitive art to the lyricism of Winsor McCay.
