Short comic based on the first canto of 'Dante's Inferno'
Note; some things are changed, ex: Dante was about 35 when he wrote this but is drawn as a young adult for 'modernization' purposes.
Class Explanation: For my Inferno project, I chose to make a short comic inspired by the first canto of the poem. It is supposed to be a ‘modernization’ of the poem, explaining the root beer reference and Dante’s collared shirt (though Virgil still wears a toga). The purpose of this was really just to explain the message or intent behind the story; Virgil was sent to Dante for the purpose of leading him through Hell, conditioning him to sin, and getting him on the ‘’right path.’
