From Cyril Pedrosa, a rising bestselling star of European comics comes Equinoxes, a unique ground-breaking work of rare intensity and narrative sensibility. In an equinox, day is as long as night, as if the world found perfect equilibrium between shadow and light, a fleeting equilibrium, similar to the stakes of our human destinies. Segmented into four tableaux for four seasons, unrelated people of all social backgrounds seeking equilibrium cross paths with other solitudes, weaving in and out of one another's lives- all captivated and tormented by the enigmatic meaning of life. Every season has its visual identity and its individual voice, culminating in summer and, possibly, an answer.
Arriving to the direct market on 8/31/16 and in stores everywhere in September.
