On a Sunbeam

On a Sunbeam

"This book somehow managed to speak truly and profoundly to my day-to-day experiences while also involving spaceships shaped like giant koi fish, ancient fox-spirits at the edge of the galaxy, and the sentence 'No, I am not going to be defeated by these goddamn flying blueberries!' Sometimes life's just like that. On A Sunbeam is a love story, a family story, and a story about figuring out what the heck you want to do with your life, in SPACE, told through art like a vivid, soft-pillow dream. Tillie Walden is a rock star."

“Tillie Walden is the future of comics, and On a Sunbeam is her best work yet. It’s a ‘space’ story unlike any you’ve ever read, with a rich, lived-in universe of complex characters.” ―Brian K. Vaughan, Saga and Paper Girls

Two timelines. Second chances. One love.

A ragtag crew travels to the deepest reaches of space, rebuilding beautiful, broken structures to piece the past together.

Two girls meet in boarding school and fall deeply in love―only to learn the pain of loss.

With interwoven timelines and stunning art, award-winning graphic novelist Tillie Walden creates an inventive world, breathtaking romance, and an epic quest for love.
