    A nicely done short graphic novel of the Grand Inquisitor story from Dostoevsky's Brothers Karamazov in which the young monk Alyosha and his cynical brother Ivan discuss suffering and human freedom. The action in staged in a pub, echoing the great tradition of staging philosophical discourses in situations involving a group of guys imbibing alcohol.

The action in staged in a pub, echoing the great tradition of staging philosophical discourses in situations involving a group of guys imbibing alcohol. In this case Alyosha (dressed in a T shirt that says 'God is Light') and Ivan are joined by another character also drinking at the bar, the barman and, lurking in the background reading a newspaper, Dostoevsky himself. The other character at the bar has a crown of thorns on his T shirt and as the book unfolds and Ivan gets onto the telling of the Inquisitor story itself, the staging of it has this other character as the Christ figure. Actually I thought this other character was drawn to look a bit like Kierkegaard... but that was probably just my imagination because, for some reason, my imagination always wants to put Dostoevsky and Kierkegaard in the same room. Anyway, good stuff, accompanied by an excellent opening essay by Tolstoy and Dostoevsky scholar Gary Saul Morson.
