To Not See the Sky for the Sorrow by Yuan-yuan Wang is a poetic meditation on loss. Evoking the hot, cicada-filled day her own grandmother passed away, Yuan-yuan investigates ideas of death, mourning, and letting go. Yuan-yuan takes comfort in knowing that the world continues to spin, and that life will go on even when we lose someone.
Yuan-yuan mixes humor, empathy, and sadness in this short-yet-potent comic!
