Widely acclaimed comic creators Thanassis Petrou (illustrator) and Dimitris Vanellis (script) bring to life a short story “The Junkie’s Holly Week” written in the ’30ths by the well-read modern Greek novelist M. Karagatsis. The plot of this superbly illustrated story is that of a drug addict who wanders aimlessly and bemused in the port of Piraeus, steeped in an ominous Holy Week atmosphere. His subsequent journey to heaven and hell, vivid with symbolism and humour, exalts the comic book to a persuasive allegory of the common folk's quest for redemption.
