This graphic biography of Oscar Wilde focuses on perhaps the most important phase of the Irish writer’s life: his two years behind the iron bars and stone walls of the brutal Victorian prison system.

With two plays running in London’s West End and at the height of his success, Wilde was convicted of gross indecency and sentenced to two years hard labour.

There are many biographies of Wilde, but The Season of Sorrow is the first in comics form. It tells the story of Wilde’s suffering under the cruel “silent system” in his own words, taken from his letters and from the memoirs of friends, prison guards, governors, inspectors, and chaplains.

My research on Oscar Wilde has been published in “The Wildean”, the journal of the Oscar Wilde Society.

Printed in black and white on 300gsm silk and matt card (covers) and 115gsm uncoated paper (interiors) by the lovely people at comicprintinguk. 124 pages. 123x177mm / approx 5x7in.

    These mini comics are beautiful and tragic, so you're gonna suffer but you're going to be happy about it. The research that would have gone into the comics is impressive. Between that, the composition, and the illustration, the end product is a collection of truly wonderful art - and a great homage to Wilde - that I am so proud to own.

    I am so happy with this book! Marland's series The Season of Sorrow is a must-have for anyone with an interest in the life of Oscar Wilde, or just great graphic storytelling. I loved the artwork and panel layouts. Marland's compilation of series 1-3 into a single volume is a solid piece of work, so if you can get that edition, definitely do...well done, Mr. Marland.

    My Sister's Birthday is a sweet and beautiful little comic, so I was very happy to see Marland following up on the family adventures...I loved The Longest Day, and I'm hoping there will be a 3rd in the series.
