Temporama (Nobrow, 2010)

Temporama was my first solo published work in comics. It is a silent story inspired by noir films and magic realism literature.

From The Comics Journal (USA):
"(...)The narrative is almost entirely carried by moody, noir-ish color.
(...) It’s one of the more interesting depictions of night in the city that I’ve ever seen in comics form, as the Brazilian artist uses a midnight blue as his base color and juxtaposes it against the extremely harsh and bright yellow of a store and the bright reds and purples of a fireworks display.
Clayton Jr. makes that darkness work for him, keeping the story bouncing along à la Carl Barks despite the fact that he’s not using a standard line to keep the reader’s eye moving from panel to panel. (by Rob Clough)"

From the editors:
"Temporama takes place in a city where, like any concrete jungle, technology favours the privileged, and nature is quarantined like a virus. A silent picture story told during one night of primal urges and strange happenings, Temporama is a beautifully simple tale told in Clayton’s trademark bold graphic style."

17 x 23 cm | 24 pages | Paperback saddlestitched
