“The Widow Reminisces” Reviewed on TCJ.com

The Widow Reminisces Over a Plate of Vegetables, illustrated by Stephanie Smith, nee Brown, is the oldest of my comics, but one that I’m still immensely proud of, in part because it’s so different from most of my other work.

On Monday, Rich Kreiner of The Comics Journal posted a short but lovely review of “The Widow Reminisces.”  I particularly liked his eloquent articulation of the story’s central themes: “It’s a graceful arc of triggered thought and pained reflection, of loss and the reconfiguration of prior resentments.”

There’s some criticism as well, as is only appropriate.  Kreiner has previously reviewed my first collaboration with Grug, Bring Your Daughter to Work Day.
