Vivès simple but elegant line takes this comic to another level not seen in most comics.Since Polina deals with ballet, you need a cartoonist that is able to fully express it in all its motions and emotions; Vivès does this flawlessly. Vivès has the eye for motion and being able to express that in the least minimal lines while making it look elegant and full of motion. When Vivès not drawing characters in motion, he's able to express the inner emotions and conflicts within his characters and between with just with lines; it's breathtaking to see.
Vivès does an amazing job creating Polina, the characters around her and the world she inhabits and making them fully complex and alive. Polina is available in English but only in the UK. The best way to get this without the heavy import prices is through Kindle. You'll have to go through Amazon UK and change you kindle address for the UK. It'll only take few or more minutes but after you done, you can purchase Polina. It may sound like a lot to do, but it isn't and this comic is more than worth it.
