Sweet Child O’ Mine

scan0014The first sixteen pages of my uncompleted “graphic novella” set in eighteenth-century Venice can now be viewed in a larger, much more legible form: https://julianpeterscomics.com/sweet-child-o-mine-a-graphic-novella/

The least that can be said about this work is that it is very odd. I completed it over five six years ago, and I must hasten to add the same disclaimer that Petrarch placed at the opening of his Canzoniere:

“You who hear the sound, in scattered rhymes,
of those sighs on which I fed my heart,
in my first vagrant youthfulness,
when I was partly other than I am,
I hope to find pity, and forgiveness,
for all the modes in which I talk and weep”
