Eddie Campbell and Dan Best bring to life the historical story of the daring . You really need to stick with this book.

Eddie Campbell and Dan Best bring to life the historical story of the daring young man on the flying trapeze in a tale filled with wonders and marvels. It’s not really the story of the Amazing, Remarkable Monsieur Leotard, a famous trapeze artist who dies almost as soon as the book begins. It is, instead, the story of his nephew Useless Etienne, to whom he bequeaths a blank book, a fake handlebar moustache, and the blessing/curse that nothing ever occur. It starts slow, but once you get about halfway into it, you'll find that it's really started to get under your skin.

It’s called The Amazing Remarkable Monsieur Leotard: My pal Dan Best worked with me on the story. I’m really looking forward to this, although I admit I still pine for more of his autobiographical work. No one does it better then he. Having said that, I find his painted works (Batman, Fate of the Artist, Black Diamond) so good, that I forget to read the story and just sit engrossed in the motion, and detail of his style. This will be a must have for any fan of painted comics.

‘He flies through the air with the greatest of ease – the daring young man on the flying trapeze!’

Step right up, Ladies and Gentlemen, for a glorious spectacle of graphic literature beyond your wildest imaginings, in which young Etienne discovers that replacing his uncle as the Amazing Remarkable Monsieur Leotard, world-renowned acrobat and head of a circus troupe, is every bit as difficult as it appears to be.

Etienne is swept up in wonder and work even as he struggles to keep up his grandiose façade, while every day his chances for happiness slip further away. For Etienne, taking a stand for his own happiness is as daring as any trick the Amazing Remarkable Leotard could perform.

Eddie Campbell and Dan Best team up for a rollicking story that's as fun as a day under the big top--a three-ring gallery of humor and adventure. The creators delve into history in a wonderfully inventive way.

Eddie Campbell's work on From Hell speaks for itself, as does most all of his work in this business the past quarter of a century or so. He reaches those wonderful heights again with The Amazing Remarkable Monsieur Leotard, a harried tale of the acrobat who popularized the leotard while traveling the world a century ago.

Sprawling in scope (Campbell fans would expect no less), The Amazing Remarkable Monsieur Leotardmarks the lives of several circus performers as they take part in several random historical events. As they fly around (or fly through the air with the greatest of ease), we meet some circus performers who seem somewhat familiar to comics readers (Le Quartette Fantastique, for example).

The art is so lush, so gorgeous, that it just may be Campbell's best work ever. The story is fun, gleefully so, and manages to be tongue in cheek without ever crossing the line to excessive cutesiness. There's an optimism that runs throughout The Amazing Remarkable Monsieur Leotard that is infectious and palpable, and that alone makes it worthy reading. That it touches on so many important events in history is an added bonus.

I've read most if not all of Eddie Campbell's books, from his Deadface and Alec books to his most recent How to Be An Artist and The Black Diamond Detective Agency. I think this is one of his best books. It has all the things I love about his work -- great art, an interesting and amusing story, and a bit of whimsy. It was also touching -- something I wasn't expecting. I hope he does more like this...

I don't have too much to say, I am sick today. But I saw no one had reviewed this and knew that the situation needed to be rectified. This is a really charming and well done book. I could tell you what I thought of the themes and whatnot, but none of you would care to hear any of that, I'm sure. This is good, buy it.
