Reviews

"Engrossing piece of comics reportage. The sheer amount of foresight and raw faith that goes into making wine as a commercial proposition is a wonder to behold, and Davodeau does his best to capture every step and draw every esoteric piece of equipment that Leroy deploys." --AVClub.com ..". article on wine and comics, Initiates is excerpted, Davodeau quoted, book presented. Wine Spectator is the leading publication for wine enthusiasts!" --Wine Spectator "This comic book may be one of the best ever written to understand wine, it does the same for comic books. A masterpiece." --Gourmand Magazine "As Davodeau notes early in the book, 'Here's something that counts: feeling the devotion and pleasure felt by the guy who made the wine . . .or the book.' It's a simple point, but one that is frequently lost in our commodified world." --Bill Sherman, Seattle PI "Etienne Davodeau spent a year teaching a winemaker about graphic novels while the winemaker showed the artist his craft in return. The exploration of what it means to make art, told through different fields with more similarities than suspected, is enlightening and inspiring." --Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading "A compelling, entertaining and educational tale that takes full advantage of the graphic storytelling medium." --Richard Pachter, Miami Herald "Davodeau's lines are clean and economically sparse, but powerful enough to forge the bonds that tie both professions together." --Nancy Powell, Shelf Awareness "I'm just going to come out and say it: The Initiates is one of the best books about wine I've ever read, period. For anyone looking to break out of their personal and professional comfort zone, The Initiates is a well-illustrated inspiration." --www.JamesonFink.com "Davodeau spent a year teaching a winemaker about graphic novels while the winemaker showed the artist his craft in return. The exploration of what it means to make art, told through different fields with more similarities than suspected, is enlightening and inspiring." --Publishers Weekly
