Le Boucher’s earlier work consists of the graphic novel Ces Jours Qui Disparaissent (Those Days that Disappear), a few younger man discovers he solely lives on alternating days… with the different days being lived by a lookalike who possesses a really completely different character.
The Locker Room begins when the scholars uncover that their college’s locker room has been renovated – and the dividers between urinals and showers alike have been eliminated.
The Locker Room retains the motion centered solely on the eponymous room, with each scene going down inside its partitions (even within the panels that function the scholars taking part in outdoors, the angle of the reader stays inside the boy’s locker room). But it surely isn’t simply the brand new setting behind the frosted glass that bears investigating: because the boys get used to the brand new atmosphere, additionally they check the boundaries and foundations of their social hierarchies.
Emphasizing authenticity over teenage melodrama, The Locker Room is described as The Lord of the Flies meets Degrassi Excessive, with the scholars being pressured to navigate hormones, hierarchical social positioning, and communal showers. The outline from the writer emphasizes that there’s no grownup supervision within the locker room, however given what I keep in mind of William Golding’s novel, even when the lecturers have been in a position to rescue the scholars from the locker room, the query stays: then who would rescue the lecturers?
