Ithaka Comic by Zen Pencils

Ithaka by Zen PencilsThis web comic translation of the poem Ithaka by Constantine Cavafy is brilliant. Zen Pencils is drawn by Gavin Aung and he has done quite a few challenging interpretations. His interpretation of Bill Waterson’s advice took some heat for being too one sided, but his take on Robert Frost’s Road Not Taken shows a pretty even hand. I like that he tries challenging material, he may miss sometimes, but even when I think he is missing he is still interesting.
