Wake – Full Script (6 pages)

This is a short comic that I wrote (well, re-adapted from a short play) after going to a lecture by Marjane Satrapi (author of Persepolis among others). Ms. Satrapi discussed about how in war people’s humanity is taken from them twice, once when they are killed and then afterwards by just making them a statistic or anecdote about the violence. It was a very interesting point, and was the inspiration for this short comic which is set at the wake of a henchman who was killed in battle.
