I finally, finally, finally gave Casanova: Avarita my first complete read through last night. It’s some delicious hypertextual insanity, at times sacrificing coherence and character development for kinetics out the fucking ass. That’s fine with me. It does some really interesting things, especially when it gets metatextual. Sometimes the ponderings are centered around the act of creation, and sometimes the ponderings take such a form as the image above. It’s the sort of effervescent insanity that Fraction has to staple down for the most part in his Marvel marvelings, which is unfortunate because it is here where he really hits his stride. He’s been able to channel it in the (sadly nixed) Defenders, and I’m anticipating his collaboration with Allred on FF will continue in such a spirit.
