“Totally absorbing and technically brilliant.” – Dave Gibbons, artist of Watchmen

David Smith is giving his life for his art - literally.

Thanks to a deal with Death, the young sculptor gets his childhood wish: to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. But now that he only has 200 days to live, deciding what to create is harder than he thought, and discovering the love of his life at the eleventh hour isn’t making it any easier.

This is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and a gorgeous, street-level portrait of New York City. It’s about the small, warm, human moments of everyday life... and the great surging forces that lie just under the surface. Scott McCloud wrote the book on how comics work; now he vaults into breathtaking, funny, and unforgettable fiction.

REVIEWS

Neil Gaiman

•Author of Sandman and American Gods

The best graphic novel I’ve read in years. It's about art and love and why we keep on trying. It will break your heart.

The Daily Telegraph

•British newspaper

Everything in these delicate monochrome panels has been considered; every angle calculated, every expression caught… There’s a master at work here, and you can feel it on every page.

The Observer

•British Sunday newspaper

What a brilliant and gripping book. As absorbing as a Victorian novel in terms of character and moral ideas, it somehow manages to be both an inquiry into the subjectivity of art and a zippy portrait of 21st-century hipster urban life. Graphic Novel of the Month.
