    One thought on “Displaced Persons”

    1. I received a free copy of the book by the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.A generally good read, enjoyable and a bit of fun. Fair warning though that this comic is most certainly one for adults, it uses a great deal of profanity which is something I don't tend to enjoy though others may well do. My favourite character was that of the detective who is more than a little strapped for cash and still hires the services of his friend, much to his wife's horror. The book has [...]

    2. A wonderful book, and much like McCulloch's other works, this one is sophisticated, complex, and benefits from multiple readings. Also like some of his earlier comics, Displaced Persons relies heavily on temporal shifts and incursions of one time period into another. This is one of those books that begs you to take notes, to write out timelines (most of which the book already provides) and family trees, and mark instances of key images (e.g time pieces, a locket, a toy horse) that link everythin [...]

    3. What an enjoyable read! This book pulled me in and kept me guessing until the end. It tells the stories of an American family, spanning multiple generations. And part of that intergenerational experience includes a tendency for family members to mysteriously disappear. At first I was worried I wouldn't be able to keep track of who's who and from whence they came. There's a helpful timeline laid out and I thought the story would require me to remember all of the details from it, as background kno [...]

    4. 'Displaced Persons' is a graphic novel about a cursed family. The book includes three larger stories that overlap, and some intermittent smaller ones. While I liked the concept, it was only just okay.There are timelines of the family throughout the book to keep the family members straight. In 1939, we have a detective hired to find a missing heiress. In 1969, we have the story of a couple twin brothers involved in a drug deal from two different angles. One is a cop, the other is not. The final s [...]

    5. The three stories that make up the larger narrative in this graphic novel would be great on their own, and the accidentally time-traveling family that brings them together just make it better. Like a meditation on life, Displaced Persons is all in the details; details in the dialog, the style and dress of each decade, and the way our characters interact. A huge amount of humanity is contained in just a few pages.This book felt unique in many ways, and I just really loved it. The art is nearly mo [...]

    6. I kind of expected a lot more from this book. The premise and general story structure were really very cool and there were some pretty neat choices in the art. Ultimately though I think it tried to be too many things at once. It was bit confusing in places and the characters and story lacked depth. It might have been better as a limited series or something so that it had more time to explore its world and characters. Also I felt like some of the characters were problematic in the way that they f [...]

    7. This book starts off a little weird and even as you read, you're still like "what?", but what you do get is that everything revolves around a tree that temporally displaces people. The book follows various generations of one family and you will see the interaction between future and past generations as they all come in contact with this tree. Displaced Persons OGNThe people of the past never know they are interacting with someone from the future. It trippy and a unique concept so it's worth chec [...]

    8. This comic book collection consist of a series of inter-connected stories, the first dealing with a 1940s private investigator and a tricky case. The next deals with an extended family, drug dealing and a pair of brothers on either side of the law. It’s also about people displaced through time and the impact that they have on the new lives that they lead.Unfortunately the lettering was difficult to read in the digital version. The artwork in this version is mainly black and white line drawings [...]

    9. From ''Stagger Lee'' to this in a few foul steps. Quite what the point of this weird triptych was, I never discovered – it certainly involves the history of the same family, with missing persons turning up here and there, but it's not an easy read. That wasn't helped by the e-arc to hand for reviewers – semi-legible script at best, and the square format not liking the idea of being blown up to full-screen. There's an artistry I suppose in creating the sustained tone of the piece, but when th [...]

    10. I'm not entirely sure whether to be impressed or disappointed by this book. It's got a good sense of San Francisco and a good sense of history. A number of interesting characters move through the story and they each have stories that are worth reading.However, the book is also somewhat bigger than that. It's about people displaced through time and about families through the generations. Unfortunately, it never feels like these other elements are fully developed, and so we get a story that has pi [...]

    11. Pretty good book. It ran to tedious in some sections but overall was an interesting read. The book follows the member of a curse family as they travel back and forth through time locked into a series of repeating events that will never end, or alter.Check out my vlog/blog:englishclassroomdonahuespyoutube/user/englishc

    12. Oof, skip this one. A multi-generational story with detectives and time travelers. Sounds great right? Unfortunately uses a lot of derogatory terms used in relation to LGBT folks and women, who are also portrayed in wooden, stereotypical ways. Bumped my rating *up* one star because the illustrations are filled with lots of lovely details like grandparents hunching over a cribbage board, and seductive smoke curls, and a VW bus at a vintage movie drive in.

    13. Probably a book I need to re-read as there is so much covered in words and pictures that I lost track of who was who and what was happening when.Time travel is often confusing, but it is worth it most of the time. Will try this again later.

    14. I had a bit of a hard time keeping all the characters straight, but I loved the interconnected, cyclical storylines! I feel like I need to read it a few more times to experience this story fully. Very inventive with beautiful, realistic art.

    15. I got so wonderfully wrapped up in this book one evening I ended up reading it twice in one sitting. A worthy place to get lost. A perfect piece to read right before or after a book like Daytripper.

    16. Awesome twist!! Nothing special with the artwork but the colors playing to showed different times are amazing.*Got it from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    17. At first, I was like, "hm." Then I was like, "ok." Then was like, "whoa, no, dude!" Then I was like, "MIND BLOWN."
