Combray (Remembrance of Things Past, #1)

Combray (Remembrance of Things Past, #1) - St├ęphane Heuet, Marcel Proust, Joe   Johnson An amazing condensation. Now I just need to get the others, but much like Shanower's Trojan war series and Jason Lutes' entirely awesome Berlin books, this is one of those uncompleted pieces that will take years to finally read the last one. Daggone slow working geniuses.

There are scenes in here where the visual is just a perfect tonic for Proust's wordiness. The scene where he unknowingly cuts his uncle in the street is just a silent piece of beauty.
