This graphic novel is just plain beautiful. The story of an event in which most of the people on the earth instantly disappear follows the thread of three people in different parts of the world that remain. The story is pretty simple and there isn't a ton of dialogue, but enough for a plot in each of the threads of story line. And the art is stunningly gorgeous. ( )

Suddenly several people around the world find themselves alone, the world has gone and they're alone, what they do and how they react is interesting.

One minute Ray is talking to a policeman about his wife in LA, two commuters meet each other's eyes in a crowded underground in London and in Japan, comic artist Yoshi who has some to the Aokigahara Forest in Japan, fails to hang himself when suddenly there's no-one else around them. Ray is surrounded by cars, Aaron and Lilly talk about everything and nothing and it's very sweet and Yoshi is chased by demons.

I cared about the different characters and what was going on with them ( )

In Los Angeles, Ray is sitting in gridlock when he receives a call from an LAPD officer with news about his wife.

In Japan, comic artist Yoshi has come to the Aokigahara Forest to hang himself. But when the attempt fails and he slides free, the forest comes alive with mythological creatures. Taking us through the empty freeways of Los Angeles, the deserted streets of London, and the dream world of the Aokigahara Forest, Celeste is an ambitious and profound graphic novel that explores what it means to be alive.… (more)
