Marcel is a shell.  He wears shoes.  He eats salad.

“Marcel the Shell with Shoes On,” is from director Dean Fleischer-Camp and Saturday Night Live‘s Jenny Slate.  Thank you both.

Dante’s Divine Comedy, the Graphic Novel

by Matt Forcey

By Seymour Chwast

I took on this project with great trepidation because so many great artists have already interpreted this important work.

Never mind, I took advantage of the form to interpret the material in a contemporary manner. I changed scale and emphasis to fit the situation in opposition to the static, uniform boxes of most graphic novels.

Dante plays himself as he travels to the other side with classical poet Virgil.  They, and the other characters are depicted in 1930’s dress.  I meant Dante to look like a Dashiell Hammett detective, searching for the truth.  The Dante character looks for answers unseeable to mere mortals, by traveling respectively, to Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.

The following images are taken from my translation of Dante’s “Divine Comedy.”
