There isn’t a role Francis has played well. An actor well past his prime, he barely has an acting career to speak of. His ex-wife, Claudette, finds him pathetic and he routinely disappoints his precocious young son, Courtney. When an opportunity to play the dying father of a teenage pop sensation chasing indie film credit comes along, Francis must sacrifice his ego and heightened self-importance for this one last shot at legacy. The mortality of his on-screen character is a stark reminder of his own end that day by day feels closer than ever before. In the end, what will Francis have to show for the life he has lived?
From writer John Dermot Woods and artist Matt L. comes Mortals, a deeply meditative graphic novel about aging and posterity.
