What’s beautiful, what’s trash, and is there an elixir to fix this human condition called suffering?
A woman body builder, Esther, and a caged butterfly, Mona, do whippets and look for an elusive elixir in a Gen-Y Fantasia. Comfortable in their despair, they set out on a journey for beauty and truth. They encounter an assemblage of characters that are a concoction of poetic melancholia and destructive tenderness.
Poet and printmaker, Jon-Michael Frank, makes the bold transition to long form illustrated storytelling in this bizarrely humorous and unexpectedly charming graphic novel.
