Review: Tango – An Ocean Of Stone

He used to play a dangerous game, running cash for the mob. Now he calls himself Tango, and he lives in a little village rising like a small island out of the rocky sea of the Andes. He’s made a few friends since he arrived, with whom he’s got a lot in common: they’ve all got secrets from their past, and they’re not exactly who they say they are. One by one, their secrets are revealed in a storm of violence when old friends come knocking, demanding past debts be paid. High up in the Bolivian hills, a mountain community is once again upended by the arrival of strangers and the troubles they seem to bring with them.

Script by Matz – Art by Philippe Xavier

The first thing that strikes you in this comic is the art. Rolling vistas of mountains and it all looks amazing. This scenery could be stills from a western!
The quality of the art continues throughout the story, with some amazing colouring to match. We not only get the feel of the dry, dusty desert, but also the highrises of some posh hotels, the sea and even the salt flats. These are all excellently rendered, with some amazing layouts. Even the fight scenes are well done.

The story itself is excellent. Done in one, with some excellent twists and turns. The characters are well told, with some interesting flashbacks – everybody has a secret it seems.

The story feels like a western – ‘Tango’ could just as easily be ‘The Man With No Name’ and I enjoy the feel of it all.
There’s some attempted learning here, with history of the ancient type, as well as some more recent in the shady past.

The characters get you connected well and there is some excellent dialogue between them – well worth checking out as it draws you in.
