But, being a book from Jason Shiga the brilliant-and-twisted mind behind Meanwhile , this is no simple Hollywood love story.
Life-saving love story reaches new heights with Valentine's Day wedding at Empire State Building
The title hints at that, but Empire State is a lot of things rolled up into one great package. It's part coming-of-age story, part love story, part comedy, part geeky reflections on the world. What it isn't is your traditional rom-com filled with hilarious hi-jinks that ends up with the guy and the girl overcoming outlandish obstacles to discover that they've been in love all this time after all.
Jimmy is an adult who doesn't really have any idea how to be a grown-up. His concept of New York is a mishmash of scenes from Sleepless in Seattle and rumors of how an interview at Google is conducted. Which, by the way, is a hilarious scene when he's trying to describe it to his mom. His friendship with Sara moves him along a little bit, but he's sort of like somebody who hasn't really lived life and has only approximated it by reading books and watching TV.
Empire State: A Love Story (or Not)
When she moves to Brooklyn, despite his objections, he feels unmoored. Eventually, he gathers up the courage to send her a long letter and boards a bus to New York, hoping to meet her on a particular date on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, just like in Sleepless in Seattle. Except that there are two observation decks.
No, the movie doesn't specify which. What we end up with, instead of that typical romantic comedy plot, is a collection of moments — some happy, some painful — that Shiga captures with his bubbly-eyed people and a keen ear for dialogue.
Indie Comic Spotlight: Empire State A Love Story (Or Not) – Leaving Home
His characters talk over each other and jump from subject to subject and sometimes have nothing much to say at all, just like real people. But they also have some hilarious and extremely geeky conversations, like the one that starts with science fiction and ends with a Fermi estimation about The drawings are stylized and look a lot like those from Meanwhile , but Shiga manages to convey a lot with few lines.
Just check out the characters in the few images here and you can see that although their facial features are very simple, there are very different emotions that come across. Another interesting thing in Empire State is the way that Shiga uses color. The book is entirely colored in reds and blues, and as you read you realize that the sections that the colors represent different times in Jimmy's life. The book switches between all-blue and all-red, with just a few scenes that have both colors. Shiga gives some hints so that you can piece together the chronology, but it's not immediately obvious when you start reading.
