by Damon Hurd and Tatiana Gill
Pictures of You is the follow up to acclaimed writer Damon Hurd and laureate artist Tatiana Gill’s graphic novella of teenage alienation, kinship, and romance, A Strange Day. In this prequel, both Miles and Anna experience the changes that shape them into the two misfits who skipped school looking for the latest Cure album, and found what was missing for them both. One year before their chance encounter, Miles and Anna lived parallel lives only a few miles apart. Miles is both jealous and overprotective when Sarah, his best friend since junior high, starts spending more time with her new boyfriend. Anna’s family is ending in divorce, her only solace is with the boy next door Ethan, a college bound musician who is growing apart from his younger sidekick leaving Anna’s romantic feelings for him unrequited.
“Hurd has always been skilled at storytelling through realistic dialogue, and here he continues to demonstrate that strength. Gill’s loose, black-lined art is an excellent choice for stories that depend on emotional resonance.” —Johanna Draper Carlson- Comics Worth Reading
