Two Missing Comics Responses.

Here are two comics; the first, a sample of what my own ‘coming of age graphic narrative’

 

Close Reading

I drew this to represent my own analyzation of Craig’s need to believe in God and immerse himself in the comic medium as providing him with solace and purpose, respectively. However as the story progresses Craig begins to find these things within Raina, thus he must cope with the realization that comfort and purpose in life may not be as simple as his religious upbringing had taught him. Here, a strange man known only as “the Close Reader” harrasses local children with discussion focused on graphic texts, in manner which neighborhood parents describe as ” unomfortable”.
