Poor Sailor by Sammy Harkham 24 April 2012
Originally seen as a mini-comic and then as part of the revolutionary anthology Kramer's Ergot #4. Harkham's inspiration for this haunting tale is Guy de Maupassant's short story "At Sea," which tells of the tragedy that occurs when property protection prevails over human suffering and loss.
   With a quiet tone that's eerie, emotional, honest and moving, Poor Sailor uses few words to tell a similar tale of a woodsman who trades a simple but contented life for adventure at sea.
