Panels from final Middlemarch comic

These characters were designed for a comic adaptation of the marriage plot line between the characters Rosamond Vincy and Tertius Lydgate in George Eliot's novel Middlemarch. As portrayed by Eliot, Rosamond and Lydgate’s relationship, though initially founded upon good intentions, is ultimately characterized by a self-destructive cycle of dissatisfaction to which both parties contribute, founded in idealized desire and sustained domestic suppression. Throughout the novel, these two characters meet, fall in love, marry, fall into debt, endure professional scandal, and bear down for the final years of a tepidly unhappy marriage.
