      In a new world there may very well be different definitions of bravery this small but powerful book looks at one such definition and how it is interpreted by lovers, faced with harsh choices, that will impact them in their new world.

      Nominated for the Cartoonist Studio s Prize for Best Print Comic of the Year, The Oven is a wonderful example of character driven science fiction In what might take a typical reader less than one minute, author illustrator Sophie Goldstein quickly, yet carefully, establishes both the setting and a compelling story.From the very first page, Goldstein introduces the reader to a dystopian world in which futuristic cities are shielded from an ultra lethal sun by protective domes On the same page, on [...]

      The Oven is a post apocalytic graphic fiction about a young couple who want to make a baby as the earth is continuously heating up and forces people into smaller communities, and the population appears to have been devastated, so you have two ovens referenced here baby making bun in the oven and the Earth as it is increasingly becoming, for real, an oven Dov s review is one I highly recommend, as it names this sci fi book as speculative fiction versus other kids of science y fiction, a book that [...]

      A couple flees the safe but controlling cities to live in a commune in the wild, with the goal of having a child Living in a state of freedom is not all as promised in a world where contact with the sun can kill An itty bitty graphic novel drawn in reds and oranges about building up hopes and falling down dreams.

      This dystopian graphic novel reads like it was created for a final project in a MFA class.The basic premise is that the environment has deteriorated, and people have moved to cities as a way to survive However population control is strictly controlled in the cities, so the couple in this story decide to head to a wilderness, off the grid society so they can have a child Things do not go as planned.The art in this one is really good The flat colors wonderfully evoke the sense of heat and deadly r [...]

      I love Sophie Goldstein s work It s dark and engaging, and always leaves me with questions The Oven does not disappoint just as with House of Women Goldstein is able to build a very specific world through details that add to the story but that don t interfere with the central story The Oven is science fiction but it s also a story about a complicated relationship, and about navigating the complexities of desire This is a really fascinating book

      The Oven is a futuristic, post apocalypticy graphic novella, Shirley Jackson meets Dash Shaw meets Eleanor Davis in the fabular feel and eeriness and style, and then there is something wholly Goldstein An intimacy, an optimism, a hopelessness The quiet failure and triumph of connection sometimes it is hard to tell which is happening at any given moment The desire for escape that can lead one to a new land, and when that new land isn t far enough from existential woes and mundane realities, to ot [...]

      I ve discovered a new favourite in Sophie Goldstein Her work combines all that I love about minimalistic comics, speculative fiction, discussions of motherhood, and weird, otherwordly settings combined with realistic characters Visually stunning and highly effective despite the short format.

      Sophie Goldstein s The Good Wife BAC 2013 SOMEBODY S BEHIND ON HER READING CHALLENGE I loved this The style is simple and the colors are divine orange orange orange but the story is delightfully unique Part Mad Max, part Children of Men, part Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind A quick read but I adored it.

      A couple moves to an encampment on a distant planet, where laws about breeding eligibility won t apply But the heat, radiation and lack of familiar pleasures strain their relationship to the breaking point Reminds me of the adage Wherever you go, there you are.

      This is brilliant, amazing work People who only read hero based graphic novels might not read this, and those that don t read graphic novels at all certainly won t read this, and that bugs me, because people should read this.

      The best comic of 2015 took me ten minutes to read A short little dystopian story absolutely jam packed with relationship themes Sad, but hopeful Probably just sad.

      The Oven by Sophie Goldstein fell solidly in the it s okay category The art is clear with an emotive colour palette Unfortunately, the story doesn t live up the the graphics Our two main characters leave what seems to be a hyper modern society to rough it out among a small community because they want to have children together The woman starts finding her place, but her male partner ends up leaving, deciding that the life is not for him This isn t a particularly innovative narrative, even with th [...]

      Classic girl loses boy story, but set in a decidedly retro dystopian future An overheated world with a dominant reproductive scheme has its outliers who want to indulge in some old fashioned reproductive models, even if it means living free of the modern world in a sort of underclass The sacrifices needed to make a living there, and in fact what makes life worth living are interesting questions in dystopian fiction generally even as it is in the tragedy of struggling domesticity trope Goldstein [...]

      While the art was nice, I found that the story s pacing was too fast Seemingly just as they arrived at The Oven did everything fall apart I would have liked to get to know the characters , since I didn t care about anyone in the book The story had potential, but it s unlikely I ll ever think about it again.

      Media is just a tool to make us dull and complacent It produces fake emotions to mask the emptiness of modern life Every second filled so we re never alone with ourselves.

      So I don t really know why I m on such a graphic novel kick lately That s a lie there s a bunch of them at the local library and I like the sense of completion that comes from finishing a work in its entirety Latest work I worked through is The Oven by Sophie Goldstein, which I finished over the course of a bus ride Feels vaguely like the kind of dystopia Kim Stanley Robinson would invent.It s basically a slice of life from a dystopic, bordering on post apocalyptic, world of the future, where pr [...]

      I loved Sophie Goldstein s book House of Women so I began looking for other books by her and found The Oven First I loved that this title was science fiction which was just like House of Women It takes place in the future at a time when people do not use natural products like food, drinks, clothes etc The government makes all these things and apparently these items make people infertile But in this society you also need to have government approval to have children Syd and Eric are not eligible t [...]

      Having enjoyed House of Women, I decided to check out Goldstein s other work It was good, but not like House of woman The story was short and to the point a man and woman who have been together for 3 years, they move in order to have a child, and then the man decides that s not what he wants once the woman is pregnant I was slightly saddened by the ending, but I think it was empowering as with House of Women Though the protagonist was left alone in the end, she had what she wanted freedom and a [...]

      I am so enad of Goldstein s two major works to date, inclusive of this one I hope she keeps at this level of writing and illustration, as they are perfectly suited for my interests as a reader.

      A dystopic future where people are incentivized to not breed It was fine but too short for anything than a passing glance.

      This short graphic novel is set in a post apocalyptic world, but it could be set anywhere the line between life and death is a fine one The theme of the book is there are two kinds of people in world with respect to living day to day There are those that are willing to become worker bees in a large collective Their lives have no meaning outside of their contribution to the rulers of the hive and the continuation of the hive as an artificial human ecosystem For worker bees, the emptiness of their [...]
