A stunning new graphic memoir of loss and grief. Tom Hart (Hutch Owen) and Leela Corman (Unterzakhn) are two cartoonists on the brink of financial ruin, planning a new start in Gainesville--until all their plans are blown apart by the abrupt death of their two-year-old daughter. This book wrecked me for days.

It's humorous and heartwarming, combining memoir, DIY, and criticism in one thoroughly enjoyable read -- especially if you're a 20- or 30-something with a mailbox full of invites.
