Lebanese creator Fouad Mezher's Fragile is gorgeously illustrated and is only 6 pages. It feels like part of the ancient mythos, a Cain and Abel story, two brothers or friends or rivals, the attempt to please a god who remains aloof to their volatile and objectifying interests. There are no words but there are word balloons. The story is ripe for interpretations both textual and metatextual.
