Our Mother by Luke Howard


Our Mother is a comedy about growing up with a parent who has an anxiety disorder. Luke Howard mixes genres to tell an utterly open personal reflection about his childhood and his relationship with his mother. Jumping between noir, giant robots, fantasy adventure, and even scientific animal research, Luke brings a very intimate story to life with humour and cartooning experimentation.

Luke Howard received a MFA in comics from The Center for Cartoon Studies, where he now teaches. He lives in Vermont. His work includes Trevor and All Coons Look Alike to Me: The Life of Ernest Hogan, Father of Ragtime. His other new comic Talk Dirty to Me was published by AdHouse in May 2016.

40 color pages, 7x9.5 inches (178x241mm), saddle stitch comic book.
