Two cartoonists — Forsman (Netflix's The End of the Fxxxing World) and de Radigues (Bastard, international prize winner), whose graphic novels star drifters, criminals, and outlaws — team up to tell the story of a prodigal mother's return.

A cross-Atlantic collaboration, Hobo Mom was drawn simultaneously. Both cartoonists' clean line styles fit together perfectly to tell the story of Tom, who lives a simple life with his pre-teen daughter, Sissy. Her mother, Natasha, who left to hop trains and has become a vagrant, shows up on the doorstep of the family she abandoned years ago. There, Natasha finds an upset husband (who is still deeply in love with her), and a little girl yearning for a mother. Can someone who covets independence settle down?


"An extraordinary story by two giants of the genre." — The Guardian

"An understated, satisfying graphic novella." — Publishers Weekly

"A short but unputdownable slice of heartbreak." — Grovel

"A tale of fractured family and personal freedom that you won't want to miss." — Broken Frontier

"A quiet but powerful story... Forsman and de Radiguès are astute, emotionally observant writers." — Sequential State
