Gone by MariNaomi

10 Apr

Excerpt screen captured from The Rumpus.

I stumbled across this gorgeous literary nonfiction comic over at The Rumpus and had to share. MariNaomi‘s drawings enhance every scene, legitimizing the words and thoughts without over-explaining. We all have some doozy exes we look back on and wonder how the hell we dodged that bullet when we were willing to stand right in the line of of fire for so long. Many of us empathize with the gunman long after they’ve gone. We wonder “what happened to…” even after we stop wondering “what if we…”

MariNaomi captures that feeling here. The embarrassment of what we’ve put ourselves through, coupled with the hope and longing for the ones who put us through it.

Check it out.
