The determined

The Determined is a comic based on a text by the poet Nazim Hikmet (translated by Peter Markaris). It is a poem titled 8-10-1945  written while the poet was in prison and was published in a collection titled "The poems of 9-10pm".

these poems. On the contrary, I would like these comic to be another reading proposal.

As for the illustration itself, my original intention was to digitize the sketches (and reverse the colors), as I did in the other two poems. However, because the result did not satisfy me, I finally kept it in only three pages, where it seemed to work.
