Why Casanova Matters

Now that Casanova has reached the conclusion of its second album, I've spent some time rereading all fourteen issues. I'm more certain than ever that Casanova will be seen as one of the defining comics of this decade, if not the defining comic.

In celebration of this end-of-Casanova-for-now moment, I've written a lengthy essay on "Why Casanova Matters" for Comic Book Resources. The essay spoils the conclusion of the "Gula" arc, just to warn you. But if you've ever had any doubts about the greatness of Casanova, or you just want to see what I have to say about a comic that you already love, check out my exploration of the work HERE.
