I stayed up until 2 in the morning working on a script re-telling Antigone. Since I've taught this tragedy to my students for the past four years, I'm already fairly familiar with the content. I want to create a "goth surrealist" vision of this myth. It's been a lot of fun (and a real challenge) to twist and obscure everything, to plot out a visually compelling script.

Technically speaking, Antigone is an easy story to convert to a comic book format. Since not a lot of action takes place within each scene, any given scene can be condensed to 4 to 6 pages. Sophocles' work has a beautiful sense of word and image economy.

I will post the script for the prologue on the website soon.
