Comments Superzelda: The Graphic Life of Zelda Fitzgerald

  • Ayrinne

    Lei dev'essere stata una persona veramente interessante anche se da queste pagine non esce come fu, ma più che altro come venne vista. Ho il suo libro da un bel po' e davvero voglio leggerlo, purtroppo tra il migliaio che vorrei leggere, sono un centinaio quelli "urgenti". Sto messa peggio del Servizio Sanitario Nazionale in quanto a tempi d'attesa.La graphic novel non è destinata a mio avviso a rimanere nella leggenda (nonostante appunto il soggetto interessante), i disegni non sono un granch [...]

    Tiziana LaPorto and Danielle Marotta do graphic reviews of books for La Repubblica. This is their first graphic book, a graphic biography, and doesn't add much to what we know of her from the excellent Nancy Milford biography of decades ago and many of the recent books about her I am sure do so much more with her life. I had read her Save the Waltz and about every biography of both Scott and Zelda I could get my hands on in addition to Scott's fiction, just obsessed at one time, and though this [...]

    I commenti a questo libro mi sembrano ingiusti, troppo severi. Ho letto con piacere le vicende di Zelda e Fitzgerald e la narrazione ha il ritmo dei roaring twenties. I disegni non sono interessanti quanto la sceneggiatura, ma alla fine ammetto di aver letto con avidità questo libro e mi sento di consigliarne la lettura.

  • Simona

    Il mio approccio con il mondo delle graphic novel comincia con la vita di Zelda e il suo mondo davvero unico. Superzelda parte raccontando la vita di Zelda Fitzgerald, la moglie di Francis Scott Fitzgerald, autore di libri quali Il grande Gatsby o Tenera è la notte, solo per citare le sue opere migliori. La graphic novel racconta la vita, l'adolescenza di Zelda. Quello che si scopre sin da subito è la determinazione di una adolescente che decide da sola del suo destino. Con SuperZelda ripercor [...]

  • Sharman Egan

    Just to be clear, this is not a graphic NOVEL; it's a graphic biography. I'm sure most people understand that when they read it but still, it's an important distinction. With all due respect to the challenges of the graphic genre, this was a disjointed and not very interesting account of Zelda's life. My sense was that the authors read a couple of the Zelda bios and Dear Scott, Dear Zelda, picked out the most interesting quotes, glommed it all together and added the graphics. The result was a th [...]

  • Raina

    I didn't realize this was a translated work until the end. But when I did realize that, I went "Ohhhhhhh!"So I guess the perspective was just a little not-amerikan. It felt like a strict "just the facts" telling of Zelda's life. We never get under her skin. Which is kind of torturous, as she was a fascinating character. Granted, it's safer this way - more true. But less interesting, less real. Less gratifying.It did help me reflect, though. About how she broke through boundaries, broke rules. Ab [...]

    biografia di zelda sayre fitzgerald raccontata con deliziosi disegni in bianco, nero e azzurro. ben documentata, appassionante come un romanzo. (antipaticissima zelda)

  • Manuela Cavallaro

    Splendore e declino di un'icona flapper.

  • Erin

    Zelda Fitzgerald is the talk of the town again with the upcoming release of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby movie and the publication of Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, as well as the forthcoming publications of Call Me Zelda and Beautiful Fools: The Last Affair of Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald.Superzelda is the only graphic novel (biography) available about this Jazz Age icon. This book cleverly plays with Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald’s own words, extracted from novels, stories, letters, and inter [...]

  • Fancesca Ivy

    Biografia a fumetti di Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald! Mi piace la tonalità pastello che percorre tutta la graphic, coinvolgente e straziante la vita di questa donna meravigliosa! Sicuramente approfondirò la sua biografia!

  • Erika Robuck

    My first graphic novel, and I loved it!

  • Harris

    A pretty spare, bare bones graphic biography of Zelda Sayre written and illustrated by two Italian comic artists, this may be an adequate introduction to her life, relationship with F. Scott Fitzgerald, and general influence on the culture and ethos of the Roaring ‘20s in the US and Europe. However, in spite of this, I feel like there is a lot left out, if only in light of conciseness.The translation is pretty nice (though Zelda and Scott’s dialog was published originally in English, of cour [...]

  • Intortetor

    un omaggio ad una donna rivoluzionaria e ad un'epoca irripetibile, ecco cos'è "superzelda". qui zelda fitgerald perde un po' della sua figura di eroina proto-femminista e un po' del suo status di musa del marito francis scott fitzgerald per tornare a noi più umana, tanto che alla fine ci resta tra le mani anche una storia d'amore intensa che neppure la follia di zelda e l'innamoramento di scott per un'altra donna potranno fermare. consigliato tanto agli amanti di fitgerald (che potranno giocar [...]

  • Vittorio Rainone

    Ho preso questo fumetto più per la curiosità di leggere una graphic novel pubblicata dalla Minimum Fax. Non me ne sono pentito. Non che i disegni siano eccezionali, tutt'altro: è uno stile volutamente indie senza averne le palle. Insomma invece dei disegni artistici, ci troviamo di fronte a tavole bruttine con volti fatti quasi a casaccio. Però la storia e l'idea di narrazione, con quella struttura a reportage in cui tutti i personaggi, anche i due protagonisti, si raccontano rompendo la qui [...]

    SuperZelda, L'incroyable histoire de la femme de Francis Scott Fitzgerald.L'histoire de la femme qui a donné son nom à la princesse (et au jeu).Qu'il s'agisse de Scott ou de Zelda, difficile de saisir l'essence de leur personnalité individuelle ou de leur couple. Ils semblent, par ailleurs, avoir vécu ainsi : insaisissables. Cette bande dessinée autobiographique tente néanmoins de nous donner un aperçu de qui fut Zelda (outre sa folie) et ce que fut leur couple. Une lecture à l'image de [...]

  • Deborah Bancroft

    Critics have said there is nothing new revealed in this graphic novel biography. For me there was and learning it through images was powerful. Very sad story.

  • Camille

    I’m a bit disappointed with the read. I’m still very interested in Zelda though and I will definitly try to read more about her.

  • Elisa


  • Sarah

    Beautiful and compelling, but I found the art disorganized and confusing at times

  • Constance

    This clever cartoon biography of Zelda Fitzgerald uses quotes from the writings of both Fitzgeralds as well as the words of many of their friends and contemporaries to create a series of snapshots of Zelda's life. It's readable and interesting, but the down side of using of actual quotations, sometimes lacking context, is an occasionally distorted, even erroneous, picture of who Zelda really was. For example, during the portion of Zelda's life spent in her husband's home town of St. Paul, this t [...]

  • Tiffany

    Necessarily there must be a certain brevity to graphic novels, but this one didn't feel complete. It was disjointed and at times confusing, such as when we find Zelda suddenly living with her sisters: hold up, when did they move in? Things like that make the brain lurch in a rather unpleasant way.Having said that, I can identify with so much of Zelda's struggle with mental illness, particularly the part of needing to flirt with the edge of relapse to feel that one is writing or creating well. I [...]

  • Emilia P

    Here is why this book was good for me -- it was about a person I had no particular interest in, by cartoonists who one might think have little business writing about a thoroughly American character. But it seems like, knowing that their subject and their lack of connection to it was kind of a hard sell, they went all out to make it interesting, and their narration and in particular their intricate, emotional, lively illustrations infuse a subject that is only sort-of-baked with a real fascinatin [...]

  • Taylor Wallace

    I knew nothing about Zelda Fitzgerald (except who her husband was) before reading this, which is exactly why I was moved to check it out from the library. Having read it, I'm intrigued to read more (and read Scott's THIS SIDE OF PARADISE), but I can't really say I find the "OMG" appeal to her. Entitled and lazy (not sure how much of this can be blamed on her Schizophrenia), she seems to have just become a celebrity by proxy and is like the original Kim Kardashian or Jenner spawn. That being said [...]

  • Brianna

    Though it seems fairly thorough in its charting of the tumultuous relationship between Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald I found the amount of detail in this graphic novel a little overwhelming (as they did manage to pack a great deal into their lives). Perhaps it would have been better to have been two volumes as the last few chapters dealing with Zelda's declining mental health and including excerpts from the letters between Zelda and Scott were absorbing and sad and beautiful all together.

  • Kari

    After reading about how The Great Gatsby was inspired, I was drawn to this graphic novel of Zelda's life. I found the information interesting but the all blue distracting and the font sometimes hard to read. This took away from the experience for me as usually in a graphic novel these things enhance the information. The illustrations were beautiful. A good read for those interested in the Fitzgerald lifestyle and Zelda.

  • Kricket

    a rather rushed, disjointed trip through zelda fitzgerald's life. i'm not sure this would have made much sense if i hadn't just finished "z: a novel of zelda fitzgerald" by fowler. to be fair, much of zelda's life was spent zipping to and fro across europe, the U.S and various sanatoriums, which helps explain the disjointedness. it's difficult to do her life justice with such a brief work, but this is still a fun read in conjunction with other sources.

  • Allie

    Normally I would give this 3 stars, but they did a total crap job at citing sources. There was just a tiny (TINY) vague blurb about the sources they used, but it basically said they used all their letters and a bunch of other books. WHAT. There was so much text in this graphic novel and I have no idea where it came from! Ugh. Unacceptable.

  • Alejandro Morales

    Una maravillosa novela gráfica y una belleza editorial que permite al lector conocer más la vida, intensa a más no poder, de esa gran mujer que fue Zelda, no solamente como la musa de Francis Scott FitzGerald, sino como una persona que quiso vivir y vivió su vida al máximo. Recomendable y agradable lectura.
