“Brilliant! Graphic literature at its best. This book leaves the comics ghetto far behind.” – Will Eisner

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 Hornschemeier’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.

“Hand me this book, and I’ll point to the exact panel that made me cry.
Mother is one of my favorite graphic novels. I’ve reread it several times, and each time this story of a boy dealing with his mother’s death makes my chest ache. The art looks like it belongs framed on your wall, and the pace is cautious and beautiful. Keep Kleenex on hand.” – USA Today
