Ezequiel Garcia

Growing Up In Public

On sale date: August 9, 2016

A 30-something Argentine cartoonist copes with gentrification and uncertain finances in this graphic novel.

Ezequiel García explores the trials and tribulations of transitioning into his 30s as a working artist where the only thing more uncertain than the source of his next paycheck is the future of his hometown — Buenos Aires. Garcia’s visual storytelling alternates among finely crafted, architecturally breathtaking depictions of Buenos Aires, revelatory, intimate self-examination, and phantasmorgical metaphorical flights, drawn in nuanced, expressive, grungy brush strokes.

Praise

"Garcia’s work reveals his passion for art, architecture, rock music, and the culture from which he comes while at the same time telling a unique tale of the bigger picture of Argentinian society – hallmarks of a memoir with long-lasting appeal for readers interested in comics that reach beyond the norm." — Broken Frontier

"Virtuoso one person anthology." — Slings & Arrows
