A great cartoonist. Parkinson's. A graphic novel. Brilliant.

Peter Dunlap-Shohl is an artist, thinker, philosopher — and the best cartoonist Alaska's ever produced. The onset of Parkinson's Disease, slowly robbing him of the muscular control that made his drawings, seemed especially perverse and cruel.

Well, of course it is. But that's not *all* it is. It's also fueled a multi-year creative burst unmatched in his career before disease. And now it's flowering into a spectacular graphic novel.

You can preview the first 11 pages here. I couldn't stop reading.
