About the book…
Boyce, a long-time friend of Dog-Ear, is a master craftsman. At first glance, his comics might appear simplistic, even childish – but through their stripped-back style they courageously convey complex emotions. What you’re witnessing isn’t rough – it’s raw, real. Boyce dares to draw about things others shy away from: isolation, anxiety, powerlessness, stress.
But at the same time the work is touching and playful – charming little characters push through borders to potter around the panels, and very often there are beautifully timed moments of kindness and union, small reminders to stay calm or smile.
Equal parts moving, mindful, and magic, this comic, in Matt’s own words, is “a bit nicer! Mostly hugs and positive things!”
“The greatest strength of Matt Boyce is his instinctive ability for conveying complex emotional states with the most economical visual clarity… His peculiarly expressive near-stick figures… remind us of the uniquely empathetic qualities of comics as a method of communication.”
Andy Oliver, Editor in Chief, Broken Frontier
