This poetic graphic novel explores the emotional bloodbath of a romance gone awry.
A young man and woman fall for each other and all is sweetness and light. But when their relationship crumbles, they each must endure the ensuing emotional fallout. Starting from this simple premise, Bastien Vivès crafts an affecting narrative about the mercurial and tempestuous nature of romance and why we pursue it anyway. The Butchery is composed of the little moments that make and break a relationship: lively dancing, silent strolls hand in
hand, stilted phone calls, tearful pillow talk.

    The Butchery lives up to its title and expands upon the preconceived definitions of the word that gives the book its name. Vivs goes to well-traversed territory regarding love and loss, but he brings a different tool set to explore where our minds often go to when experiencing such things. It's designed to make readers feel every emotion known to humans in love or who have loved and it leaves you no choice but to keep reading. Read Full Review
