Asterios Polyp was artist David Mazzucchelli ’s (Daredevil “Born Again,” Batman “Year One”) near decade in the making, masterful return to comics. Epic in myth and metaphor while deceivingly simple in style and scope. A story about a ruined academic fleeing far a field to ruminate about his failed life and marriage. Its true themes question the implied false dichotomy of classical duality, the interconnectedness of humanity and our failure to empathize or understand the lives of others.
