This adaptation and analysis of ‘My Compleinte’ focuses less on Thomas Hoccleve’s metrical feet than on his physical ones. It reimagines – and redraws – Hoccleve as a comic book protagonist by condensing and adapting the fifteenth-century poem into a 14-page comic. The accompanying essay uses contemporary comics theory to think about the sensory aesthetics of Hoccleve’s anxiety, reads his feet and heart as key figures in the poem, and suggests parallels between scribal labor and comics drafting. The project was initially conceived as a creative experiment, an homage to the poem, and a teaching aid.
