Donald Robert's graphic novel 'Verissimus' reimagines the life and philosophy of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. Based closely on historical sources and weaving them into a thrilling historical epic, 'Verissimus' teaches readers a philosophy of life through illustration. It opens with Marcus' death and tells the story of his entire journey: his education, relationships, wars, plague, and civil war - all leading up to his remarkable death. 'Verissimus' illustrates key Stoic ideas, and focuses on developing love, empathy, and overcoming anger - all emotions with which Marcus struggled. Robertson highlights several key relationships, and through them tells the story of the famous philosopher's intellectual journey and emotional transformation.
