Disgusted and appalled with the today#xE2;#xAC;"s noisy and noisome world in whichall is spectacle and surface sensation, Nick flees into the solitude of the desert.But even as he manages to recover some sort of spiritual balance thanks toascetic regimen of fasting and meditation, Nick is seduced by the most spectacularand mesmerizing spectacle of all time: The procession of the Queen ofSaba. In Vapor, the award-winning Spanish cartoonist Max (best known for his2006 book Bard#xC3;#xAD;n the Superrealist) once again engages in delightful philosophicalmind games, starring another wildly stylized and endearing protagonist#xE2;#xAC;#x1D; this time deploying a striking, crisp black and white graphic style perfectlysuited for this desert-based fantasia.
