Moving Pictures is the story of the awkward and dangerous relationship between curator Ila Gardner and officer Rolf Hauptmann, as they are forced by circumstances to play out their private lives in a public power struggle. The narrative unfolds along two timelines which collide with the revelation of a terrible secret, an enigmatic decision that not many would make, and the realization that sometimes the only choice left is the refusal to choose.
Top Shelf is proud to welcome Kathryn & Stuart Immonen (Ultimate Spider-Man, Nextwave, Patsy Walker: Hellcat) to the Top Shelf family with this very intimate story set in World War II while the Nazis were pillaging much of Europe's great art collections.

So I read this and I enjoyed it but I was quite sure at the end that I'd missed something very significant. So I read it again (it's short) and that didn't help. So I had my husband read it and he was equally perplexed. So then I read a handful of reviews, relying in particular on Douglas Wolk. And my conclusion is that I didn't miss anything. The book simply disregards formula and has a misleading official description hinting at cliches that don't exist. So then I felt much better about both it and myself.I bought this because I buy most things from the Immonens. And everything that isn't Marvel. It was a given that I'd love the art. The writing is less certain but it was gorgeous as well. Immonen's writing seems to always jump around a lot, so it works better (for me) in stories where the scenes keep jumping as well. The alternative is irritatingly unfocused, hyperactive characters. But everyone was very deliberate here. With some very thought-provoking perspectives. This is a good discussion book. Once you accept where the action is.

The narration got a little messy in certain spots and I got a little lost but this was a good book. When someone asked me to describe the book I was reading the synopsis sounds a little dull so for the two authors to make a story out of what sounds like a boring premise shows their talent. Their illustrations were good as well as the framing they use for their characters really gives the story it's mood. However, I could see what themes and feelings they were trying to give their characters but I feel like they did not flesh them out enough.
