Sand Castle

by on May.18, 2013, under Comics

In Sand Castle a family, a couple, and a group of American tourists happen to come to the same secluded beach, where they find the body of a dead woman and a North African man who swears he didn’t kill her. What you think is going to be a story of racial scapegoating turns out to be something else entirely as things slowly begin to go wrong for the group over the course of a long day.

I don’t want to give away what goes wrong, because author Pierre Oscar Levy introduces and builds it quite subtly, but I will say that it presents an enormous challenge to artist Frederik Peeters, and that he completely pulls it off. He has a simple style with a heavy line, all in black and white, with either very heavy shading or none at all (reflecting the light at the seashore). He has to choose his details carefully and they are all pretty much perfect.
