Al Davison is a man with something to prove

Al Davison is a man with something to prove. Compared to Al Davison, aged 30, who wrote The Spiral Cage, the artist now finds himself essentially the same - but more confident. As Davison points out in his follow-up book The Alchemist’s Easel, he couldn’t know then if he was constantly drawing on the same sheet of paper, or drawing invisible lines with an empty pen.

This book was put together very cheaply . The glue fails in the binding causing some pages to fall out on the first or second read.
I needed it for my English class and by the time I was done with it all the pages were held in with staples.

The Spiral Cage is the autobiography of the graphic and martial artist Al Davison. The story returns throughout to Al's struggle with a bout of ME, chronic viral fatigue, and spirals around to the other ways he's had to deal with prejudice and acute physical difficulty. He was born with Spina Bifida, was never expected to walk; faced skinheads, ignorant arrogant doctors and intellectuals, school bullies.
Reading a graphic novel, especially one told as masterfully as this one is, you come to forget that the whole thing is based upon repetitions: similar drawings appearing over and over again, relentlessly. The images establish a rhythm: your eye flicks from one to the next, registering the changes in posture, strength, seeing the main character's body not as something that can be easily described - as it might be in words - but as a being that has to be dealt with on its own terms, allowed to carry the story in its own way. The montages of prejudiced, angry faces (there's one terrifying bird-like school bully, his face clotted with prejudice), set against the precise sequences of martial arts work in front of the mirror, are like the mantra Al chants at one point to avoid a violent confrontation. They build up a sense of the way that an individual person's voice and breath and strength and skill can peacefully resist the circumstances which attempt to reduce him.
There are a variety of voices, many of them childlike, many of them lyrical. A book like this is a reminder that `disability' is as much the result of prejudice as of any difference in physical development. This book's technique and narrative are inseparable from each other - at the same time, they describe and perform the remarkable discipline and courage of their creator.

This is a landmark piece of literature and art combined; an autobiography executed as a graphic novel, and definitely one of the most important works in the comic book field.
It documents Als life from the day of his birth, and his refusal to allow the spina biffida he was born with, to dictate his life path. The reader is swept along on an odyssey as Al strives to walk, is bullied at school, finds a spiritual home through Buddhism and the martial arts, and meets the love of his life.
It's difficult to get hold of these days, but I would recommend this book to anyone. I normally buy comic books for entertainment and because each one teaches me something new about the sequential art artform.
This book taught me something new about life!
