Pursuit is a comic is loosely based on the classic Mesopotamian story, ‘The Epic of Gilgamesh’ focusing on the friendship between the two main characters who bond over their shared love of fighting. This adaptation aims to make the universal themes of friendship and remembrance relatable to today's pre-teen audience. The story is told through anthropomorphic insects, particularly beetles, because of their nature as fighters in real life.
