Reading: The Last Unicorn

Pre-ordered the comic adaption. I wasn't completely convinced at first, despite the lovely sample page up on Peter's website. The cover also looks fantastic, but still, I held back.

Then I saw the artist's deviantart page where she had uploaded a sample page in pencils.

For such a tiny, insignificant passage in the novel, it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

I want!

Also, best quote in the book: "I was born mortal, and I have been immortal for a long, foolish time, and one day I will be mortal again — so I know something that a unicorn cannot know. Whatever can die is beautiful, more beautiful than the unicorn, who lives forever, and who is the most beautiful creature in the world. Do you understand?"

It plucks at my heart strings the same way Le Guin does.
