Emma G. Wildford by Zidrou & Edith. Translated by Marc Bourbon-Cook. Statix Press / Titan Comics, 2018. 9781785869280. 104pp.
Emma, an English poetess, tired of waiting for news of her fiancé, defies the stuffed shirts at the Royal Geographic Society and sets out to find him. She picks up the trail of his expedition in Tromso, Norway, and heads to the shores of Finland’s Lake Inari with a guide. Things don’t go well, and while it was occasionally bruised, she never loses that free spirit. My favorite moments in this were unexpected like when Emma puts her brother-in-law in his place, and when she plays rugby in the snow with her guide.
