Lulu, by Frank Wedekind (as comix)
Just today, I came across a new version of Frank Wedekind's Lulu as told in comix form.
This retelling is by John Linton Roberson, an artist based in Seattle, Washington. As Roberson readily admits, his Lulu is not quite drawn from the character played by Louise Brooks in the 1929 film, Pandora's Box. Though she did inspire him. Lulu, both the play and the character, remain an endlessly adaptable archetype. Check out this new Lulu here.
