"Cages tells the story of three artists: Leo Sabarsky, a painter in need of inspiration; Angel, a nightclub musician who seems oblivious to the adulation of his fans; and Jonathan Rush, a writer whose novel Cages so enraged his readers that he now lives in captivity. How these characters break free of their mental cages forms the central conflict of this book, which evolves into a meditation on creativity and godhood."--Library Journal.

A very diverse story and graphics.
The story is, at first, chaotic and disjointed but it all comes together in a unique and wonderful way.
The graphics are varied, from starkly detailed photographs to sparse, minimalistic line drawings. They merge from one form to another in a seamless manner, bringing focus and understanding to the story.
The end story is wonderful.
The story of these people, each alone in their own apartment, yet each living lives that intertwine and influence each other (and others) is well done.
I loved the cat that meandered through everyone's lives.

A massive tome of a book. Large and heavy. Find a comfy chair and enjoy. This one will rest on your knees.

Enjoyable, but this title gets pretty insufferable at times with respect to how it assumes everyone is an "artist" (said with appropriate sneer). Not being an artist, this left me feeling alienated often.
Also, this is definitely an unwieldy book to hold and read.
