Peter Kuper is in my opinion one of the best comic artist creating today. The System is a wordless story about a live in a big, ugly, sleazy city. In The System, Kuper creates a complicated story of many lives and how they interact whith each other, all told in pictures with hardly any words, and the pictures are fabulous, Kuper has a very individual style which I think is brilliant. This is not a comic book for kids it touches on themes of racism, violence, love, sex, organised crime, corupt cop's, injustice and of course the endless search for freedom from all this.
Many people seem to think that comics are just for kids and not a serious art form which can say anything to adults, this is just one of many comic books available today that totaly demolishes that bogus view, if you have not read a comic book since you were a kid, give this a try I dont think you will be disapointed.
