STICKS AND BONES: Home Is Where the Hearth Is (Issue 1)
Valya Dudycz Lupescu & Madeline Carol Matz

Home Is Where the Hearth Is is the first chapter/issue in the graphic novel STICKS & BONES. Issue 1 tells the story of Yaroslav, a displaced house spirit in America looking for a new home. At its heart, this is a fairy tale about love and transformation, and the sacrifices we make to find our place in the world. The 24-page comic will be beautifully illustrated with fully painted pages by Madeline in a style that echoes the art of Czech Art Nouveau painter Alphonse Mucha.

Fully funded by kickstarter supporters, Sticks and Bones will debuted at Chicon 7!
