“PILGRIM” – the graphic novel by Stephen Michael Barnes
Pilgrim: A graphic novel about a man on a pilgrimage, for reasons unclear, and to a destination unknown. Prompted by a dream of freedom, he leaves his job and home only to find himself in a pathless desert. He longs for something that he can’t quite define, and finds himself in a world of dreams, on a quest that leads him through mysteries and enigmas. Where is he going… and why?
What people are saying about Pilgrim:
“Fabulous” – Cile S.
“… mysterious, soulful, and playful.” – Abigail R.
“After I had been reading for awhile, I began to feel that the book was reading me” – James F.
“…and then I cried. Very surprising. Very beautiful.” – Lisa L.
“It’s a meditation. I find myself caught up in particular pages at different times.” – Steve F.
“Pilgrim” received a review on Lulu.com:
“This graphic novel is like a guided meditation. I just finished this book and I loved it. Very different from other graphic novels. More than just a simple story, the tale is told almost exclusively in images rather than words. Very unique, and a book to be read again and again, almost like poetry. I can see why this book is described as both “art” and “spirituality.” I recommend “Pilgrim” for anyone who might enjoy poetry and mysterious, mythical tales.”
