Sometimes, the only way we can face reality is by pretending it isn’t real.

The Cloven Book One stars James Tucker, the most successful Genetically Modified Human Organism ever created. Conceived in a privately financed, top-secret laboratory on Washington state's Vashon Island, Tucker is a cross between a human and a goat — a Cloven. Known to his friends as "Tuck," all he wants is to live a normal life as a university student; everything is going fine, until he shows a girl his hooves… Moody and mysterious and atmospheric as a fever dream, The Cloven Book One follows Tuck’s breakneck journey across the Pacific Northwest as he searches for his true home out there somewhere. Book One of a raucous, funny, fast-moving, and dynamic series of graphic novels by two bestselling and critically acclaimed storytellers. Book One of Three.

"This is a story about the manipulation of Truth that we live with constantly in our society, the fragmentation of reality. A world where facts are malleable; where genetic 'experiments' live in the margins while we look the other way; where billionaires and secret societies decide the fate of our world; where we believe the scripted television news over something we’ve actually seen; and yet where searching for one’s place in the world — searching for one’s home — is still the most powerful yearning of a person’s soul." — Garth Stein

"Wildly, dizzyingly imaginative, and grimly allegorical. It fairly 'bleats' with wry humor, and the art is spectacular. I can’t wait for the next two installments!" — Erik Larson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Devil in the White City
