We're proud to soon be releasing Today Is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life, a major work of comics autobiography by Austrian cartoonist Ulli Lust and winner of the 2011 Angoulême "Revelation" prize.
In 1984, 17-year-old Ulli and her friend Edi spent several eventful months on a trip from Vienna to Sicily. By turns exhilarating and harrowing, their journey is told with uncanny recall, lucid observation, and emotional honesty. Lust's cartooning is evocative, detailed, and punctuated with expressionistic outbursts.
"Ulli Lust really nails my favorite part of storytelling. Bumming cigarettes, learning how to hitchhike - the small details that create great character." – Jaime Hernandez
The 464-page book will debut at MoCCA Fest next week, and we'll also have copies — and Ulli herself! — at TCAF in May! It should be on shelves in stores about 2 months from now. You can get it a bit sooner by pre-ordering direct from us, and in the meantime you can take a test drive with our 30-page excerpt.
