Eliot’s “Prufrock” Gets Comic Book Makeover


Let us go then, you and I… Montreal illustrator Julian Peters has just released the first nine-pages of his comic-book adaptation of T.S. Eliot’s classic poem, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.”

The poem, one of the canonical works of modernism, was written in 1910 and published five years later. Julian Peters, who has also released comic-book adaptations of Poe, Keats, and Rimbaud, says he intends to make the piece available as a limited edition zine. In a minute, there is time!
