Review on Broken Frontier

The third and longest review so far of 566 Frames. It appeared on the comic book and graphic novel news site Broken Frontier – written (beautifully!) by Conori Bell-Bhuiyan. 

"For a book that contains the harsh brutalities of war, fighting, bombs and rage 566 Frames is a surprisingly gentle graphic novel. The whole book is a reflection, a look back through the hazy mists of time."

"[...] a story of endings and beginnings, history and living in the moment, recognizing your past and looking forward to the future."

"566 Frames takes an approach to storytelling that is not only unique and innovative, but at the same time universal and timeless."

Review on Comic Book Resources

Second review of 566 Frames – this time in Sonia Harris' top 10 of weird biographical comics on Comic Book Resources thus placing it next to timeless books such as Persepolis by Satrapi, Buddha by Tezuka and Bechdel's Are You My Mother: A Comic Drama.

"Combining familial anecdotes with his own fractured memories creates a wonderfully organic glimpse directly into narrators life, and those of his ancestors too. Darting back and forth across time and space the book is rich with emotionally communicative imagery. Wojda’s story is delightfully warm and alive, sweeping the reader along in his dreamlike tales..."

Review on Now Read This!

The first review of 566 Frames in the UK – by Win Wiacek on his blog Now Read This!

"Mixing time frames and viewpoints – including many wise pronouncements and predictions from his own time as a foetus in the womb – the tale begins and ends with the birth of the author. [...] There’s a formidable amount of sex, death, struggle, fear, privation, terror, envy and heartbreak to season the surreal whimsy, diverted daydreams, folksy philosophy and chatty monologue… And music: everything from Polkas to Jazz to Jimi Hendrix"

Get the book!

Here it is! The English edition of my graphic novel 566 Frames. You can now buy it on my publishers' website (click)

"In his seductively sharp graphic novel Dennis Wojda takes the reader for a ride through Imperial Russia to Nazi-occupied Warsaw, ending up in Stockholm in the Swinging Sixties.
A bitingly clever and genuinely touching tale that includes witches, psychics and horse murderers.
Wojda has a gift for creating vivid characters; he goes straight to the heart of things in his graphic memoir, pitching his ancestors' stories in a variety of ways – funny, creepy, tragic, comedic and desperate.
566 Frames is a comic-book with a real heart."

The Book

What started as a blog has now progressed into a book. 566 kadrów (566 frames) was recently published by W.A.B. It'a a beautiful book and I hope there will be an English edition one day.

Have a look inside the book here.

BLURB | by Max Andersson

"566 frames" moves freely through time, space and human destiny, but never lose its thread or grip on the reader. A book that in a completely natural way defies the laws of nature. 

MAX ANDERSSON – Swedish comic artist and film director

This blurb will appear on the cover of the forthcoming book "566 frames".
