Sometimes, you have to escape your past to get to the truth. ComicsLit introduces another amazing talent with a deeply felt story about growing up in a northern New York State mill town. After years of being away and making a life for himself, Shane finally travels back home. On his way, his mind is flooded with memories of his blue-collar family under tremendous pressure and pushed to the breaking point by alcoholism and abuse. For a kid growing up in this, the pain can be tremendous. As an adult, resentment battles reconciliation. Beautifully evocative cover art.
