Praise

Shortlisted for the 2020 Cartoonist Studio Prize, presented by The Center for Cartoon Studies and Slate

“[A] lush, innovative and important monument to loss.” — Hilary Chute, The New York Times “Best Comics of 2019”

“Santoro’s stupendously assured style is made to seem sketchy, preliminary, transient. . . . Santoro’s pans around the industrial vistas and timeless rivers are majestic as well as melancholy. . . . There are stories yet to end, and futures of uncertainty ahead. But art like Pittsburgh makes the world worth staying in.” —Adam McGovern, HiLobrow

“Examining his mother and father’s broken relationship, Santoro (Pompeii) expands their story into a superb combination of family saga, coming-of-age memoir, and tribute to his hometown of Pittsburgh . . . He simultaneously pays tribute and bears witness in artful detail, creating an origin story sure to move many readers to reflect upon their own beginnings.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
