    1. “Sharaz-De – Contos das Mil e Uma Noites” do artista plástico e ilustrador italiano Sergio Toppi (1932 – 2012) é mais uma excelente edição da colecção de Banda Desenhada “Novela Gráfica” do jornal Público em parceria com a editora Levoir publicada a 23 de Abril de 2015. No prefácio da edição da Levoir/Público, João P. Boléo refere em relação a Sergio Toppi, que ”A sensibilidade, a atenção ao pormenor significativo, a qualidade literária, a densidade temática e a [...]

    2. I'm an artist and the son of an artist. I don't have a lot of work to show for the title—being mostly employed in web design, I only have a little bit of illustration work for online magazines still extant. But my father, he was a career artist in the real sense—in the sense that he produced physical objects of art. Ceramics and Chinese brush painting. The point is: we're both all about the aesthetic value of human creations, no matter the medium. He likes my work and I like his and whenever [...]

    3. Disclaimer: Copy received via Netgalley Did you ever see the old Sinbad movies? Maybe the one with the young Jane Seymour? The ones with the Ray Harryhausen special effects? Was it your first introduction to the Arabian Nights too? Did the actual tales with the frame story of sex and violence come as something as a surprise? Well, Mr. Toppi follows the tradition of the original stories and not the movies. And boy, is it something. I had never heard of Sergio Toppi before seeing this book posted [...]

    4. These reimagined tales plucked from the Arabian Nights are intriguing, but the real attraction is Sergio Toppi's astonishing artwork. He combines design and storytelling in a way that eliminates the need for panels while still propelling the reader through time and space. His drawings are exquisitely detailed and expressive, balancing shadow and light, culture and costume, hallucination and reality.The episodic narrative sort of evaporates at the end, but I've rounded up my rating for "Sharaz-De [...]

    5. Sharaz-De is an adaptation of The Arabian Nights, or The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night, with someone we recall is named Scheherazade. It has an alarming premise of sex and violence. Shahryār discovers his wife is unfaithful, killing her. He travels to his brother's house, finds his wife is unfaithful, and she is killled. Shahryār decides to have sex only with virgins after this, whereupon each morning after he kills them so they will never have the chance to be unfaithful. Nice story [...]

    7. A magnificent adaptation of 1001 Arabian Nights.In the land of Gowan-dab, a mighty king had two sons, Shahriyar and Shahzam'an. Longing to see his brother, Shahzam'an set out in haste to see Shahriyar; but, in his haste, left without the dagger his wife had given him. Upon realizing this he rode back quickly to find his wife in the arms of another man. Distraught, he kills her and her lover and sets back out on his original journey.Shahriyar, recognizing his brother's peril, encourages him to ta [...]

    8. Deixei o melhor para o fim. Aliás, este foi o elemento fundamental que me convenceu a negociar com uma papelaria cá da terra para fazer a colecção completa das Novelas Gráficas Público/Levoir. Tinha de assegurar que esta edição do esplendoroso Sharaz-De chegaria às minhas estantes. Sabendo o que me esperava, tendo-o já encontrado por portas e travessas nos recantos obscuros do mundo digital, guardei-o até ter tempo mental para o saborear.A adaptação de contos das Mil e Uma Noites po [...]

    9. When I was a kid, I used to "sneak" into my mom's library and spend hours looking through Faeries, enthralled with the illustrations of the pretty faeries, the folklore, and the terrifying nasty ones. I say sneak, not because my mother didn't allow me near her books, but because the illustrations and descriptions were explicit--revealing the dangerous side of the fairy tale/folktale world with which I was unaware, having kept mostly to Disney. If I ever have kids, I want this to be their Faeries [...]

    10. Wonderful art and a great bunch of stories make this one of the best graphic "novels" around. (Really it is more like graphic literature).Mostly pen and ink drawings that add to the stories that are sometimes subtle and sometimes over the top, but always appropriate.The only problem with this book is that it is way too short. There are 1001 stories and this book only contains 12. The author is now dead so there'll be no more and that is too bad. Ending a book can generate different emotions--for [...]

    11. Beautifully illustrated stories taken from the Arabian Nights; there's some deftness to the writing too but the images are almost enough to tell the narrative on their own.Better review soon.

    12. A Idade de Ouro Islâmica deu ao Mundo uma lufada de ar fresco no obscurantismo medieval, incluindo diversos clássicos de literatura, onde, para o mundo ocidental, as Mil e Uma Noites tomam o papel principal. Contudo, Toppi não reconta as histórias de Sindbad, Ali Baba ou Aladino. Ao invés, coloca Sharaz-de (Xerazade) a contar histórias a Shahriar (uma por noite, um pouco à semelhança do original) onde entram personagens que, não tendo o objectivo de serem lembradas por si só, servem de [...]

    13. I read this one in the spring and forgot to review it but then saw a friend had just read it and it sparked my memory. A beautiful retelling of the Arabian Nights that manages to capture the high stakes intensity in a way no other version I've read has done. Toppi's "Sharaz-De" singularly evokes the king's emotional pain as well as his immature, self-centered cruelty, while still offering a sense of romance and expansiveness (night after night unfolding in endless stories told by Sharaz-De to c [...]

    14. Li os dois volumes de uma tacada só. Sergio Toppi parte de um material que em si já é primoroso e consegue torná-lo melhor ainda. Primeiro, pela seleção das histórias, desprezando as mais conhecidas e adaptadas, e jogando luz sobre algumas pequenas joias. E depois, pela forma como transpõe essas histórias para o papel. Cada página é uma pequena obra-prima. Mas minha parte preferida são os epílogos mostrando o que estão fazendo os habitantes de Bagdá nas auroras em que Sharaz-de co [...]

    15. Um livro poético em termos de desenho. As histórias que Sharaz-De conta são boas e ela procura chamar a atenção ao rei que a mantém cativa de personagens que caíram em desgraça de uma maneira ou de outra, muitas vezes por ambição ou ganância.O desenho é fenomenal. A composição das páginas é extraordinária e a marca de Sergio Toppi. Já tinha visto o seu traço numa história sobre o Infante D.Henrique.Vale a pena abrir em qualquer página e admirar o traço.

    16. Some of the best art I've seen in a long time. Sergio Toppi is a master of comics art. Almost all of the pages are worthy of framing and hanging up in a wall. The book itself is gorgeous; something you might like to leave on a coffee table for guests to browse

    17. The artwork in this piece was truly spectacular!! I would recommend this book for the art alone as it is the visuals in this novel that create the lyricism and poignancy of the story.

    18. Tempo fa una persona mi consigliò di dare uno sguardo alle opere di Sergio Toppi perché secondo lei il suo stile ben si adattava ai miei gusti. Aveva pienamente ragione.
Adoro la Sharaz-de di Toppi non solo per il tratto così particolareggiato, arabescato ed al contempo essenziale (soprattutto nelle tavole a china dotate di maggiore forza ed incisività rispetto a quelle a colori), per la costruzione delle tavole originale e fuori da molti schemi, per questo gioco di tratti, linee e cerchi [...]

    19. Extraordinary artwork, but uninspired storytelling. There are roughly half a dozen tales from The Arabian Nights here, mostly ones in which foolish or greedy people meet some horrific fate. There is no real resolution to the frame story about Scheherazade and her king, either. I found the artwork so stylized and static that it was more a series of moments from the story, rather than a partner to the storytelling in the way characteristic of the best graphic novels. After a while, I began to page [...]

    20. L'opera migliore tra quelle che ho letto di Toppi. Mi ha completamente stregato, il suo tratto spettacolare si abbina perfettamente allo stile dei racconti, specialmente quando trasforma sensazioni ed emozioni in immagini, spesso di animali. Un filo comune lega quasi tutte le storie, quello dell'ingratitudine: spesso i protagonisti, una volta ottenuta una posizione di forza, sono svelti a voltare le spalle a chi è loro vicino o a cui debbono qualcosa. Ma la giustizia non tarda mai a portare equ [...]

    21. Breathtaking artwork. Would have finished sooner if I hadn't spent so much time studying the lines and the designs. I will definitely flip through this again and again.

    22. Que parada maravilhosa. O mestre Toppi, lá em 1979, criou uma parada que até hoje ainda parece vanguardista. Ansioso pelo volume 2.

    23. This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. Sergio Toppi is a genius. Whilst some of the stories end abruptly, the artwork more than makes up for it.

    24. More reviews available at my blog, Beauty and the Bookworm.Let me start by saying this: Scheherazade is one of my favorite fairytales. For those of you who don't know (and many don't; this one isn't as popular as the likes of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty) Scheherazade is the teller of the 1,001 Arabian Nights. The term "1,001 Arabian Nights" itself comes from her story. Here is (briefly) how it goes: One upon a time, the king of a middle-eastern kingdom found out his wife had been unfaithful t [...]

THE NIGHT, O LORD, IS STILL THE REALM OF BIRDS OF PREYE DAWN THAT WILL BRING ME DEATH IS FAR AWAYANT ME THIS, MY KING: THAT TO BRIGHTEN THE HOURS AHEADI MIGHT RECOUNT STORIES ANCIENT AND RARETILL THE NEW DAY ROBS ME OF SPEECH AND BEING.Sharaz-De: Tales from the Arabian Nights is a long series of unimaginable stories that began with a king destroyed by his queen's infidelity, he changed into a cruel king who hated woman and decreed that every day a woman of age will be sent to his bed and on the [...]
