Publisher Comments:

With his clean, distinctive art style and poignant storytelling, up-and-coming indie comics sensation Paul Hornschemeier has earned comparisons to and accolades from today's top graphic novelists. Mother, Come Home is Hornschemeier's graphic novel debut-the quietly stunning tale of a father and son struggling, by varying degrees of escapism and fantasy, to come to terms with the death of the family's mother. The story seamlessly weaves through the surreal and the painfully factual, guided by the careful, somber colors and inventive pacing unique to Hornschmeier's storytelling. Mother, Come Home extracts almost tangible drama from the most tranquil of moments, making that which is unspoken in each panel easily audible, and almost uncomfortably experienced.

Review:

"The plot is a real three-hanky weeper, but Hornschemeier leverages some of its heaviness into bittersweet absurdity. He's a talent to watch." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Each panel tells multiple stories, and multiple reads are required to appreciate their complexity fully. Highly recommended." Library Journal

Review:

"[E]xceptionally powerful." Booklist

Review:

"[T]he book's greatest strength is the story itself and the lessons it offers for life, loss, and, most importantly, how to move on." School Library Jounral
