Growing Up In Public

by Ezequiel Garcia


Usually ships within 6 days


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.
