A new comic about legacy, loss, human curiosity and the economics of failure -- adapted by illustrator Lizzy Stewart and writer Molly Naylor from Naylor's play of the same name.

"This is a wonderful, a profound, a real work that explores so many things. I read it in one sitting, adored it for what it was, absolutely loved Lizzy Stewart's artwork, was drawn in by Molly Naylor's words. It is vital, it is beautiful, it is powerful. It's a wonderful read." -
