The Lost Sunday is an Eisner nominated comic book about working too much, told through stories and inspiration from old folklore, myths and tales. It’s a very dear project to me, and it was also based on my own experience with burnout.
Nina lives in a dusty town, haunted by the six angry wolves of the week – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day brings never-ending chores, and no one can rest until they are done. Legend speaks of a seventh, kinder wolf, but everybody knows an evil witch stole it and keeps it locked away. But Nina has had enough, so she sets on an ambitious quest – go to the forgotten realms, vanquish the witch, bring back Sunday and enough free time for everyone.
The print run for the first Romanian and English edition was funded through a campaign on Kickstarter, organized with the help of Pronoia (Laura Bularca) and Maria Surducan. You can see some elements used and you can check the whole campaign here.
