Summary, etc. note: Homunculus is a thoughtful, beautifully illustrated story about a couple's attempts at having a child and their eventual foray into parenthood. Pentti Otsamo deals with themes of pregnancy, miscarriage, guilt, and superstition in a story told in a bold and direct drawing style. Homunculus, referring loosely to the alchemists' ambition to create life, showcases Otsamo's talents as both an artist and writer; his intelligent, understated storytelling and inviting graphic style is a welcome breath of fresh air in the graphic novel field.
Expansion of summary note: pregnancy, relationships, Finns, Finland
