"A holograph is a document written entirely in the handwriting of the person whose signature it bears."
Inio Asano’s Nijigahara Holograph is a very powerful comic. Asano also did Solanin, which I liked very much; that one is relatable and Solanin as a character is very likeable, but this one (Holograph, which came out in Japan in 2006), is stranger and more disturbing by far and also more powerful. If you are tempted to think that comics are for kids, think again. This is an artistic accomplishment of the first order: enigmatic, troubling, moving, and at times difficult to read--in its subject matter, but also it is not a straightforward narrative. It can at times be difficult to follow. Arie Kimura is the main character, who has suffered much and who is often rather silent, but many other characters in the book also seem to have suffered abuse of various kinds. This tale is for me about the need for art to express the inexpressible. In this case, too, the horror. And those images do and do not quite suffice in that process, either for coping or the failure to cope.
For instance, featured in the book are several key images, largely unexplained, and evocative:
*Glowing butterflies proliferate (I was reminded of the manga horror Uzumaki’s proliferating spirals a bit, but the butterflies work another way than the spirals)
*A magic tin box is an important part of the story
*The windows of tall buildings (for pushing people out, or jumping)
*A dark tunnel
As with all the serial murders and classroom shootings and racial killings in this, one of our disturbing periods in the U.S. (or is just a continuing nightmare?), it is tempting to wonder if some Monster or Figure of Evil has descended upon us. Asano is not an essayist, though, and doesn't answer that question. He’s a kind of poetic comics artist with his own views on the matter, maybe, but they can’t be summarized adequately in analytical terms. He’s more interested in psychological horror, or in what we make of the trauma we experience, than sociological explanations. But a Monster IS one theory posited in this story. Is Nijigahara haunted by something terrible? Things keep happening there. Some of the tale takes place in a kind of nightmare dream-state. It's horror as it relates to the everyday, the real (and maybe much horror works that way).
The drawing is wonderful and the juxtaposition of images and enigmatic dialogue creates a kind of mesmerizing effect. For me, anyway. I see later some people are bored by it, or just confused. I can see that, but I liked the mystery in it. There’s a lot of space to reflect, too, on the various situations, instead of just some really dark and densely drawn experience. But that I mean literal white space, in many panels.
This is not a book about plot. It’s about trauma of various kinds and how it is experienced psychologically and over time, through memory. Never past. Always present. And there’s a lot of silence, when you might hope for more Solanin-like zest or even rage. But sometimes, as you know, terrible things are difficult to overcome.
This is an amazing comic, a work of art about sexual violence against women, about various kinds of violence we inflict on each other, and comics as one central way to reflect on/refract experience.
I thought of filmmakers such as David Lynch, Ingmar Bergman and Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Uncle Boommee, which I had just watched).
Here’s a Comics Alliance review I read after I had written my review, initially, which sheds more light on the horror from the perspective of sexual trauma:
