Expectation_cover

Expectation is a story of hope and tragedy inspired by the life and work of the early-twentieth-century Expressionist artist Egon Schiele, whose tortured, attenuated forms are instantly recognizable. Wordless and rendered in pencil, this thread-bound mini-comic by Amy Peltz explores how narrative can be conveyed with a minimum of means. In some respects continuing the style of her previous comics Shopping and Houses, Expectation also takes this approach in new directions, finding in pencil smudges, erasures, and traces a visual analogue for memory and loss.
