Kate Schneider

Headland

On sale date: February 22, 2022

In Headland, artist Kate Schneider pays tribute to her departed grandmother. A quietly powerful work of graphic medicine by a promising new comics talent.

Following a stroke, 95-year-old Ruth wakes up in a cold, unfamiliar hospital. To escape her grim surroundings, she retreats into a wilderness within her mind. In this interior world she befriends a tortoise who accompanies her on a journey into the unknown. As the days pass, Ruth’s hold on the material world wanes and she moves deeper into her own landscape.

In Headland, artist Kate Schneider pays tribute to her departed grandmother, presenting with deeply felt empathy a perspective little represented in popular literature. Drawn with soft pencils and lush colors, this graphic novel explores the tensions between safety and autonomy, language and silence, holding on and letting go.
