Pictures of Dorian Gray, Images of Oscar Wilde; Part Seven: Victorian Cameos

Posted by on May 25th, 2010 at 12:01 AM
Dave Sim's Wilde is a sympathetic figure — intelligent, amusing, affectionate and pitiable. He is also physically gross in both senses of the word: he is very fat, and his body is producing symptoms that are undeniably disgusting. As Sim draws him, Wilde's face is so massive and slack that it seems almost to melt onto his shoulders. But the real masterpiece of this book is the haunting, yet strangely noble, portrait of Wilde on the cover. The image shows an open bottle of wine and a near-empty glass in the foreground, ornamental wallpaper in the background. Wilde is in between, almost entirely in shadow. Half of his face — the half away from us — looks tired and gaunt. In the other half we see the outline of a skull.

As was the case last week, “Minis Monday” is again something of a misrepresentation. There’s nothing mini about Volume 1 of Breakfast at Mimi’s, Marek Bennett’s self-published compilation of his strip Mimi’s Doughnuts.
