Diagnósticos, de Lucas Valera & Diego Agrimbau
Ed. La Cupula, 2016 | Spanish | CBR | 76 págs. | 43.5 MB

Diagnósticos reúne seis historias cortas que revisitan la tradición del género de la narrativa: seis trastornos mentales sirven de hilo conductor para la exploración de los códigos del noveno arte. Las protagonistas de estas historias sufren de distintos trastornos sensoriales que se ven reflejados en una apropiación indebida de los mecanismos tradicionales del cómic; así, los poderes sinestésicos de una investigadora le permiten descifrar las onomatopeyas que flotan en el espacio de la página, una joven sufre de claustrofobia encerrada en los límites de una viñeta o una estudiante en letras, aquejada de afasia, sólo comprende el lenguaje cuando lo ve escrito sobre algún soporte.

The thing that sets Latin jazz apart from other forms of jazz is that it's fundamentally a music for dance. The artists who create this music are expected to move gracefully back and forth between the worlds of jazz and salsa, sometimes in a single tune. Though it's overtly intended to get our bodies moving, Latin music richly deserves our respect. No one's crying "sellout" when the dance floor fills. Always rhythmically sophisticated, full of unexpected syncopations and crowd-pleasing acrobatics, its appeal is cross-cutting. There's also a rich vein of intellectualism in the Latin music world, and the past couple of decades have seen an increasing number of Latin American musicians moving into the "serious" side of jazz.
