    One thought on “De maagd en de neger: Papa en Sofie - 1994-1998”

    1. Why is this wonderful book so little known when it excels in so many areas? The story (a real life romance between the author and a Togolese asylum seeker) is highly original and moving.African people are virtually absent from European comics and here they are treated with respect and intelligence. But this is not some 'worthy' political treatise - Vanistendael deals with complex issues of racism, cultural clashes, and torture with intelligence and humour as part of human story. And, above all, [...]

    2. Het was even wennen aan de tekenstijl en het lettertype, maar verhaal blijft wel "plakken". Heel benieuwd wel naar het vervolg!

    3. Made me weep. One of those books that makes me think I should mark down all the ratings I've given to other graphic novels because there is a whole lot of extra depth to this story.

    4. First published at: meexia/bookie/2017/03/I went to a panel of European Graphic Novelists a couple of years ago at the British Library (wrote a little about here), and one of the panelists was Belgian author Judith Vanistendael. Her semi-biographical graphic novel based on her own experience falling in love with a refugee piqued my interest, and I still remembered it as I saw this book at my library one day.It's quite surreal reading it now and felt how timely it is, what with the refugee crisis [...]

    5. Bonne bédé même si certains passages sont répétitifs La difficile réalité sur les sans-papiers et les demandeurs d'asile est dévoilée (en Belgique du moins), me rendant moins bête. La mère de Sophie ressemble beaucoup à la mienne. Et ça, ça m'a bien plu.

    6. Autobiografische strip.Mooi!Voor ouders met opgroeiende kinderen zeker herkenbaar. Het eeuwige balanceren tussen 'zich zorgen maken om, wakker liggen van ' en het 'meegaan in de keuze van je kind en het verder willen helpen'De zwart-wit tekeningen zijn erg geslaagd. Een aantal zou je zo willen vergroten, in een lijstje stoppen en in je huis hangen.Voor mij graag:- de winterse knotwilg-tafereeltjes voor onze living- 'paps' ruikt Afrikaanse gerechten en sluipt Abous keuken in, voor onze keuken- he [...]

    7. A very interesting read based on the true story of the author, a student in Belgium, who falls in love with a political refugee from Togo. While the author touches on the violent background and torture of the Togolese refugees, it is done in a very respectful way without dwelling too long. The result is a balanced thought-provoking read with dark and light moments, beautifully illustrated.

    8. Dit boek stond al lang op mijn te-lezen-lijst. Gisteren opgepikt bij mijn favoriete stripboer en vandaag in een ruk uitgelezen. Het verhaal van Abou en Sofie wordt eenvoudig verteld en is schitterend vormgegeven. Het leest als een trein, en je voelt dat er meer is. Gelukkig heeft Judith Vanistendael een tweede deel uitgebracht.

    9. Nice idea to split the story into two narratives/perspectives but it seemed so much was left out of the story that could have been told. I liked her ink and brush style, especially with some of the more sensual and violent scenes where her flowing lines added greatly to the story. Enjoyable read.

    10. Mijn eerste grafic novel, met dank aan de Verbeelding Book Challenge! Deel twee van het tweeluik ligt klaar.
