One year ago, New York Times bestseller Nate Powell (SWALLOW ME WHOLE) made history as the first cartoonist to win the National Book Award (for MARCH, the civil rights memoir trilogy written by Congressman John Lewis & Andrew Aydin), not to mention the Printz, CSK, Sibert, and YALSA Nonfiction Awards! Now he returns to solo work as the writer/artist of COME AGAIN, a full-color graphic novel for adults coming this summer. It's a haunting tale of intimacy, guilt, and collective amnesia, set in a fading Arkansas "intentional community" where hippie idealism has weathered into compromise… and the secrets binding two families threaten to awaken something monstrous. Don't miss the evolution of the man BOOKLIST called “the most prodigiously talented graphic novelist” of his generation.
