THE ZABIME SISTERS
It is very rare when an author/artist takes the time to focus on the motivation of his characters rather than the adventure itself. Aristophane has produced a significant testimony to the discovering the mind's inner workings in The Zabime Sisters.
Three young island girls, Celina, M'Rose, and Elle, share a day in their life on Carribean Island of Guadalupe. On their way to see a fight between two boys, together the girls explore the dark and scary forest, steal mangoes from an orchard and taste a sip of rum. During their adventure, they face moral dilemmas as the journey takes them further into their own psyches than on their physical path of excursion and adventure.
