Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete Soulwind?

This makes me wish Mr. Morse was a more prolific comic book creator  Aug 24, 2008
I love these "complete" volumes that collect an entire comic book series (complete bone, "" grease monkey, etc...) and it's for that reason that I picked this one up. It's encouraging to think that you can pick up a complete anything in literature for about $25.

I loved everything about this book: the art, the multiple plotlines (and how they are resolved), and the storytelling. It's ridiculous to talk about the scope because it sounds like something a third grader would think of - child becomes a hero, spans time and space - only that this has been executed by an obvious master of the medium. I'd like to read more about this series but haven't been able to find much on that there internets.

The author does have a website:
Interesting, but not great  Jan 1, 2006
I wanted to like this book more than I actually did. The story shifts between very different stories, that all eventually get connected. The art style changes as the story shifts. I felt lost in the beginning, but it does all tie together. It's got a lot of interesting elements: a cool, legendary sword; Celtic myth; Arthurian legend; a young boy questioning his life at a Japanese monastery; aliens and robots.

In the end though, I wasn't a huge fan of the art (although I loved Poke) and the story didn't grab me.
Strange,... But Great.  Aug 27, 2005
Soulwind is a book that should be read with an open mind and patience. Have an open mind about different story telling techniques and have patience and know that even though you don't quite understand what the heck is going on in the book now, you will later on. Mr. Morse tells a very rich story and, I believe is best enjoyed in one volume, due to the many threads that one is asked to follow.
I also really loved the art in this book and how it changed for the different story threads. It really seemed to fit in this book and shows of Mr. Morse artistic skills.
I have given this book to several of my friends who like comics (mostly mainstream) and have asked them what they thought. Pretty much the same response each time, "It is strange... but great!" That is Soulwind in a nutshell.
Deserves much wider exposure  Feb 26, 2004
I'd place this on the same level as Neil Gaiman's work with Dave McKean, both in terms of story and art. However, unlike McKean's patchwork surrealism, Morse relies on a minimal, flowing style, often using blank space and page layout to their own ends. It might be disconcerting to some that the artistic style shifts according to each story's perspective, but it's all part of a greater whole.

The groundwork is laid in the first chapter, which is told through the eyes of a boy in a Japanese monastery as he finds an odd sword in the river. Things then shift to the view of a young boy in 1947 who is transported by aliens to a planet inhabited by talking marsupials (who expect him to be their savior). In the middle, it shifts to present day, in which an elderly woman is reminiscing about her missing son.

Lost yet? Don't worry. Though the book jumps through time and vision, that's the point. This is a story about the beginnings of things and how everything's tied together. It manages to cover a complete rebuttal of the King Arthur mythos *and* the story of creation, all without becoming the least bit ponderous or self-important.

I'd place this among Gaiman's "Mr. Punch" and the "Watchmen" in terms of something that completely realigned my view of what the comics medium can do.
