Kurzbeschreibung

15. Juni 2010
"Greendale" is based on Neil Young's critically acclaimed 2003 album and 2004 film of the same name. Many have referred to the album as a "rock novel" which explores the effects of crime, media, consumerism and environmental issues on the Green family in the sheltered small Northern California town of Greendale.

Even for politically active teenage girls, Sun Green has always been different. There's been talk that the Green family women had great powers in concert with nature, but Sun herself never really wondered too much about it. Then, in the fall of 2003, as the nation gallops blindly into war, a Stranger appears in her hometown of Greendale, and everything starts going to hell. In an effort to overcome the pain the Stranger brings, Sun unearths the mystery of the Green family women, and in doing so, finds her own inherent power, not just to confront the Stranger, but to confront the mounting injustice of the world outside of Greendale as well.

Pressestimmen

"Chiang's subdued, surreal art delivers an arresting visual dimension to the rock legend's spiral narrative that's as whimsical as it is fearsome."—WIRED/Underwire

""Greendale" the graphic novel is completely satisfying as its own, singular animal. . . . I enjoyed "Greendale" immensely, just as scenes from the Gulf reminded me how prescient it is."—Scripps Howard News Service

"An engrossing story of how every generation rediscovers its own coming-of-age journey, adapted from the rock opera album by Neil Young. . . . Dysart's writing ably builds the mystery of the story toward Sun's climactic discoveries about herself and her family that lead to life-changing decisions. Chiang's art excels at mixing the magical elements of the story with its foundation in reality and recent world events."—Publishers Weekly

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wie viel Neil Young "inside"? 19. August 2010
Von e-frogman
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Ich glaube Neil hat mit Greendale eine Geschichte musikalich erzählt, die sich mit dem Buch weiterentwickelt und teilweise verselbständigt hat. Das Buch ist, aus meiner Sicht, sehr schön und detailreich illustriert. Bei mir haben Geschichte und Darstellungen die Hoffnung geweckt, dass es vieleicht noch mal eine Fortsetzung von Neils Grenndale geben könnte.

3.0 von 5 Sternen The Green Woman and the Green women 26. April 2010
Von Zack Davisson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Depending on who you talk to, the "Greendale" project is either Neil Young's Magnum Opus and the most important thing he has done since "Ohio," or it is the self-indulgent sentiments of a once-great man whose creative powers have long since faded. Love it or hate it, it cannot be denied that "Greendale" is unique and an entirely new challenge for Young.

First released in 2003, "Greendale" was conceived as a 10-song rock opera telling the saga of the environmental-awakening of Sun Green and her standing up to the evil corporation "PowerCo" and their Alaskan oil drilling, along with some anti-mass media and general corruption protests thrown in for good measure. The story grew in the telling, which began with a simple acoustic set by Young, enlarging to include his band Crazy Horse and finally to a full-blown stage show complete with props and actors miming out the actions in the background while the band played on. In 2004, Young re-made his story as what he called a feature film, but at 87-minutes and with no dialog it is essentially a series of grainy low-tech music videos.

Wanting to bring his story to an even wider audience, Young brought his ideas to DC Comics and asked if they would be interested in a collaboration. Young worked with writer Joshua Dysart (who was no stranger to working with singers, as he also scripted Avril Lavigne's Make 5 Wishes), and the two put together a new take on the story that had dashes of Dysart, great big helpings of Young, and some twists and turns that readers have come to expect from the DC Vertigo imprint.

The story revolves around Sun Green from the town of Greendale, California. The Green family are sort of the town oddballs, with an out-of-work father who dreams of becoming a fine artist and a musician mother who had a local hit song several years ago. Together they live and work on the Double E ranch, nearby Sun's Grandfather and Cousin Jed, a low-level pot dealer with a penchant for firearms.

When sun turns 18 Sun begins to have strange dreams of a green woman who tells Sun to "Be the Rain," and some of the secrets of the Green family women begin to come to light as Sun searches for answers. Women born into the Green family have a tendency to wander off into the woods and never return, and Sun begins to fear for her safety and sanity. Into this town come two strangers, the boy Earth Brown who is instantly attracted to Sun Green, and the Devil himself, in the form of a red-eyed cowboy who has come to do battle with the newly-awakened Sun.

The main departure from Young's original opera is the introduction of supernatural elements into the story of Sun Green, who was previously just the voice of youth activism but is now the inheritor of a lineage of Earth mothers who can tap into a sort of elemental strength. The Green woman, is apparently the actual Green Woman, she of the foliage face seen in Neo-paganism. The timelines of Young's story are re-arranged as well, with Sun's climbing of the Golden Eagle being the climax of the story rather than the middle-point, and taking place after meeting Earth Brown and not before.

Considering its odd history, "Greendale" actually turns out to be a decent comic, but not an exceptional one. Joshua Dysart does his best wringing a narrative out of Young's music, going so far as to include the song lyrics as character's dialog from time to time. The introduction of Neo-paganism and supernatural elements works well, and definitely gives the story more of a "Vertigo feel" rather than simply being a political harangue of corporate America. Cliff Chiang (Doctor 13) does a stand-out job on the artwork, and the always wonderful Dave Stewart (Hellboy) adds the color that a project called "Greendale" needs. Chiang went out of his way to preserve Young's character designs, although he ditched Sun's camouflage skirt and mid-rift exposing top for something more practical.

I think my biggest problem with "Greendale" is that it just feels really dated, using imagery and politics more reflective of the late 1990s than 2010. Comics has already been through the Neo-paganism thing, back when the film The Craft made a brief witchcraft boom, and gave birth to series like Garth Ennis' Goddess and Chris Bachalo's The Witching Hour. And while Young has a lot of feelings and emotions backing up his music, that same intensity just doesn't translate here, and two many of the characters fall flat, being mere plot-devices rather than living characters with depth and story.

Ultimately, I think "Greendale" is going to appeal to those people who are already fans of either the genre or Neil Young. If your politics lean to the left, and you aren't opposed to dancing around a Maypole or reciting the Wiccan Rede, then you might enjoy this as a story that confirms to your beliefs. Alternately, if you already own the "Greenwood" CD and are familiar with the story and concepts, I think Dysart and Chiang did a fantastic job transposing the work and it stands as a nice supplement to Young's rock opera.

However, if you are just a curious comics fan than "Greendale" is likely to disappoint. There is just not enough story here, and too many of the political statements come off as trite and undeveloped.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Review from someone not familiar with the original source material 27. Mai 2010
Von R.Suarez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Neil Young fans will enjoy this the most...

A lot has been said about the story told in this graphic novel by other reviewers already. As someone not familiar with the album/movie this is based from, I did some research and have found that while based off the source material mentioned, this graphic novel does not follow the exact same story and is more of an adaptation from the original Greendale (Bonus DVD).

Having said that, I can tell I enjoyed reading this book. The characters are likable, the story about supernatural elements controlled by Sun Green as well as the Neil Young look-alike bad guy are quite entertaining. I agree though with those who feel this book is politically biased (story is told during the Bush years so you can imagine), but that does not seem to affect in the end the main story of the Green women, whose lives were as intriguing as fascinating.

The art is simply beautiful and so is the coloring.

I assume this would a more enjoyable ride if I were familiar with the source material. I have read some of the lyrics from the album are inserted in the graphic novel in the form of dialogue for example, something Neil Young fans will definitely enjoy, as this graphic novel is mostly targeted to them.

For those of us not familiar with the original album/movie, it is an entertaining story that fits quite well in the Vertigo line from DC comics.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Greendale as a Graphic Novel 2. Juni 2010
Von Thomas A. Holmes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I am not familiar with Neil Young's GREENDALE, the album, although I own a number of his albums from his days with Buffalo Springfield to CHROME DREAMS II. I approach this graphic novel on its own merits.

NEIL YOUNG'S GREENDALE offers a mystic, visionary experience of Sun Green in the first decade of this century, when the United States faces a number of challenges ranging from terrorist threats, environmental risks, and social schisms. Sun Green's understanding of family is shaken by the decline of her grandfather in his dimentia, her veteran cousin's inability to return to the way of life he enjoyed prior to his service, and the mysterious disappearances of women in her family. Sun comes to terms with these issues in this work.

Those familar with Joshua Dysart's writing for DC/Vertigo's UNKNOWN SOLDIER will find the same high consistency in his writing here. Cliff Chiang's art proves his great skill again--the characters' facial expressions and their postures reveal depth of feeling. And, as a fan, I have to say that Todd Klein's lettering (hand lettering!) meets his high standard once again--I have appreciated his work for years (just get a look at SANDMAN), and I am glad to see some more of it.

Some of the finer creators in the Vertigo stable have put together this project, and their combined talents make this book worthwhile.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful artwork! 27. April 2010
Von ChibiNeko - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I have to admit, I've never listened to the Greendale album, but this graphic novel makes me curious to listen to it.

Greendale covers a brief span in the life of Sun Green, starting with glimpses of her as a child. The meat of the of the book takes place over a few days, with Sun beginning to ask questions about her family's past. She's caught the notice of a mysterious & sinister man who seems to have some sort of supernatural powers. Sun has to figure out what exactly is going on as well as try to find her own place in the world as every she previously knew begins to shatter around her.

The artwork is easily the best part of this graphic novel. It is beautifully done & there's nice detail to everything. I really enjoyed pouring over the artwork in this book & reread it a few times just because the artwork was that nicely done.

Unfortunately, the weak point is the storyline. It really could have been fleshed out better- the graphic novel just seems to flash over some topics, spending little time on them when more definition would have been nice. It isn't difficult to figure out what's going on, but I really think that if the book had been better done it would have been a more satisfying read. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice read. It just isn't a great one.

Fans of Neil Young might like this because of the album, but I don't know if it will appeal to all graphic novel readers. It just doesn't bring anything new to the medium.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nice addition to Neil Young collection... 23. September 2010
Von Shakeyfan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
If you are a fan of Neil Young's Greendale then you need to pick this book up. It compliments the movie/CD very nicely. The illustrations are especially good. And the story gives a little more back ground information on the whole concept. I condsider Greendale one of Mr. Young's better projects and highly recommend this for any and all that feel the same way.
