In an equinox, day is as long as night, as if the world found perfect equilibrium between shadow and light, a fleeting equilibrium, similar to the stakes of our human destinies. Segmented into four tableaux for four seasons, unrelated people of all social backgrounds seeking equilibrium cross paths with other solitudes, weaving in and out of one another's lives- all captivated and tormented by the enigmatic meaning of life. Every season has its visual identity and its individual voice, culminating in summer and, possibly, an answer. Equinoxes is a unique ground-breaking work of rare intensity and narrative sensibility by a rising bestselling star of European comics.


"Cyril Pedrosa's Equinoxes is an impressive feast of a book." —Scott McCloud, author, Understanding Comics and The Sculptor

"Each and every page of this pageant is worth lingering over: A lavish tribute to the power of sequential art. At its best—and it is frequently at its best—Pedrosa's work borders on magic." —Publishers Weekly

"Ambitious and beautifully drawn. Worthy of recognition for comics as literature." —Foreword Reviews

"Thoughtful and well executed. The color work is exceptional." —Summer Hayes, Booklist

"Works as a piece of art, so beautiful are the contents." —John Seven,
