A screenplay that was never produced is brought to life in this beautiful graphic novel. This funny, surreal story from one of America’s great imaginations follows Mac as he crosses the desert, to run from an adversary he doesn’t know and reach a goal he doesn’t understand. By incorporating original text, using striking colors, and playing with the conventions of the genre, Perez’s interpretation of Henson’s story shows how powerful graphic novels can be.

Josh, Gordon and Cody are high-schoolers from a small town in Oregon. Intense watercolor and ink drawings tell their story: their fathers are all serving in Iraq, and each is struggling with being the "man" of their household in their fathers' absence. Ultimately, this violent and bleak graphic novel presents a powerful picture of the sons left behind, as each dreams of following in his father's footsteps and serving in the military.
