Ci Vediamo

Hazel Newlevant's comic Ci Vediamo is appealing and serious.  It's wordless, except for the dedication.  It's about loss and longing.  Two characters miss one another and think of one another.  They romantically pine.

The drawing is beautiful, and the ideas are strong.  The pace is generous.  There's a gorgeous simplicity at play.

It's simple, but the feelings are deep.  Obviously it's hard to talk about--maybe the wordlessness has to do with that.  But see it for yourself.
