The Fall of Homunculus

Front Cover
Drawn & Quarterly, 1998 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 58 pages
Homunculus is a thoughtful, beautifully illustrated story about a couple's attempts at having a child and their eventual foray into parenthood. Pentti Otsamo deals with themes of pregnancy, miscarriage, guilt, and superstition in a story told in a bold and direct drawing style. Homunculus, referring loosely to the alchemists' ambition to create life, showcases Otsamo's talents as both an artist and writer; his intelligent, understated storytelling and inviting graphic style is a welcome breath of fresh air in the graphic novel field.
