Review: “Inverso” @ Serienett (Norway)

By Kristian Hellesund.

"Berliac is an author who likes to suggest. He gives the reader hints of action, and he is very selective in what he delivers. Thus, it is the reader who must assemble the parts into a whole".

“Berliac es un autor que prefiere aludir. Brinda al lector retazos de información, y es muy cuidadoso en lo que nos muestra. De esta forma es el lector quien debe ensamblar las partes en un todo”.

Review: “Playground” @ Revista Laraña (Spain)

By Miguel A. Pérez Gómez


"… (Playground) seeks to digress, but with no intention of lecturing us or becoming a landmark in the medium, but to state comics as a big empty space in which a lot is yet to be done, all sketched through (…) a discussion with himself, displayed for us readers, who must come to our own conclusions, or rather we are put between a rock and a hard place and forced to decide between immobility or towards broadening comics’ narrative posibilities"


“… (Playground) busca ruptura, pero sin la intención de sentar cátedra ni convertirse en un hito dentro del medio, sino que se plantea el cómic como un gran espacio en blanco en el que todavía queda mucho por hacer, todo esbozado a través de (…) un debate consigo mismo que desea exponernos a nosotros los lectores que debemos llegar a nuestras propias conclusiones; o más bien poniéndonos contra la espada y la pared haciéndonos decidir a favor de un estatismo o en pro de la apertura de la narración en la historieta”.

Review: “Inverso” @ Just Indie Comics (Italy)

"It’s remarkable how Berliac manages, in only 24 pages, to describe emotions in a very authentic way (…) through ever changing graphic techniques that alternate red, black and green tones, providing with a good sample of an author to absolutely keep an eye on".

“Es notable como Berliac consigue, en sólo 24 páginas, describir emociones de forma tan definida que resultan auténticas (…) con recursos gráficos siempre diferentes, alternando tonos rojos, negros y verdes, en una espléndida prueba de un autor a tener absolutamente en cuenta”.

Review: “Inverso”, “voyeur/rêveur” and “Love was a meteor…” @ Little Nemo’s Cat” (Spain)

"…los dibujos no ilustran, ni acompañan a las palabras (o viceversa), sino que unos y otros (imágenes y textos) amplifican su carga significativa, en muchos casos, gracias a un ejercicio de yuxtaposición más que de secuenciación".

"… the drawings don’t illustrate, neither go together with the words (or viceversa), but instead, both text and images amplify their meaning, in many cases, through an excersise in juxtaposition, rather than sequencing".

Review: “Playground” @ La Cárcel de Papel (Spain)

"Playground" ranked 8th among the best comics of the year, according to spanish critic Álvaro Pons:

Playground was quite a surprise, a daring and aggressive discourse that forces us to re-think the dogmas in comics, from a paralel reflection that takes John Cassavetes as inspiration and connecting thread. I was left stunned by its audacity and its power.

Playground fue una sorpresa, un discurso agresivo y descarado que obliga a repensar los dogmas del tebeo desde una reflexión paralela que toma a Cassavetes como inspirador e hilo conductor. A mí me dejó bocabierto por su atrevimiento y fuerza.
