Sammy Harkham is one of the most regarded and influential cartoonists of his generation.
This collection of his short stories condenses a decade of ground breaking work. Harkham’s genius is his ability to infuse vast amounts of emotion and information into nuanced cartoon narratives, his style is both articulate and expedient. At the centre are two vastly different narratives: ‘Poor Sailor’, a sea faring myth of a man gone to find wealth for his love; and ‘Somersaulting’, a kind of fever dream of teenagers in love, whiling away the summer.
