pag1Cristina Daura’s work reminds me of early Top Shelf comics. Her use of color, especially her work in Rojo Putón and Colibri, show her masterful control power of a desaturated, flat palette. Her graphic style is remarkably flexible, always with a meticulous sense of design, and though her subject matter has moved away from more shocking imagery to more pure explorations of rhythm and hue, I always admire it highly. It’s quite beautiful and tends to be more lyrical than most Spanish comix.

Here is a four page story Ms. Daura did for London’s Noborow Press, on the theme of Brave New World. It is a good introduction to her work, which you should most definitely track down at Ms. Daura’s own website.
