    CHUD - Jeb Delia Jun 22, 2012

    Jerry Cornelius predates punk rock, but he anticipates it so well that it's tempting to credit him as a founding father of the movement: the literal father-killing, the freewheeling anarchy, the deep well of compassion and woundedness disguised as apathy and amorality, the anything-goes aesthetic. If there's a significant difference between him and Casanova, it's that Cass is post-punk and has the benefit of several decades of hindsight. Cass, like Jerry, doesn't just destroy his old relationships, he literally breaks free of the story he's in, and where he ends up at the end of this issue (which could actually function as a pretty effective finale for the series) suggests that he might soon be dabbling in the same kind of metafictional awareness as Jerry Cornelius did.

    Honestly, between this and the previous issues of “Casanova: Avaritia,” I can't remember the last time I was this satisfied by the experience of reading a comic book as I have been from this arc alone. We're still four volumes away from the absolute finale of “Casanova”, but it's probably nottooearly to note that whenever this all ends it'll be Fraction and the Twin's definitive masterpiece.This has all been said before (by me, and on this site), but it's hard to match the sheer amount of creativity and genuine love for the art of comic books as found in “Casanova.” It's clearly a labor of love with the amount of time spent in bringing the series this far, and as one door seemingly closes it is rather impossible not to be excited for what the future holds with ‘Acedia.' Suffice it to say, whatever happens will be impossible to ignore. Read Full Review
