This winter, The Sorrowful Putto of Prague will be published in print form in the Czech Republic by Argo. The first published edition of our work will contain several stories not online and exclusive to the print edition.

The Sorrowful Putto of Prague : Rusalka at the Opera in Prague (comics)

One such tale is ‘Rusalka Rises (and partakes in a rare and dramatic outing to the opera)’. In the coming weeks we will be posting a short preview of the first third of this tale, based on the Czech legend of Rusalka and made famous globally via Antonín Dvořák’s opera.


The incredible art in this preview is by Lenka Šimečková of The Republic! (All hail The Republic!)

As these exquisite images show, it’s going to be quite the visual treat.

Skoda in Prague, Czech Republic

Lenka was the genius behind our ‘The Eyes of Mother Prague’ preview from last year (which will also be in the Czech print edition).

Prague in peril! Wonderful view of Charles Bridge in comic form.

We’ll be publishing the preview over the coming weeks and you can start to read by clicking here. We hope you enjoy and please, if you do, spread the word.

Here’s a more than suitable piece of music to go along with your reading, dear reader.
