In advance of Valentine’s Day, here’s a very short romance story by Linda Sejic called First Date. It’s a romantic-comedy comic about the budding romance between Hades, the god of the dead and the king of the underworld and Persephone, the daughter of Zeus and Demeter and Goddess of vegetation. First Date is a short comic you can read in only three(!) tweets. It’s a good showcase of Linda Sejic’s artistic skills, the characters are expressive and distinct, the layout informs the story and the colours, particularly in the vistas, are breathtaking.
