BeschreibungThe book tells the story of a young boy and his relationship with his father. It covers the period from the 1939 New York World's Fair to the last Apollo space mission in 1975. Told through the eyes of the son as he grows up in an era that is optimistic and ambitious, fueled by industry, engines, electricity, rockets and atoms, presenting the story in a way that only comics and graphic novels can. Brian Fies is a writer and cartoonist whose widely acclaimed first graphic novel Mom's Cancer won the 2007 German Youth Literature Prize.
PortraitBrian Fies is a writer and cartoonist whose widely acclaimed first graphic novel Mom's Cancer won the 2005 Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic (the first Web comic to win the award in this new category), the 2007 Lulu Blooker Prize for Best Comic, the 2007 Harvey Award for Best New Talent, and the 2007 German Youth Literature Prize, among other awards and recognition.

PressestimmenThe clean, simple comic-strip quality of Fies's art fits the story perfectly, highlighting the gravity of the situation while cutting away undue sentimentality. Mom's Cancer is a quiet, courageous account of one family's response to a universal situation." - Publishers Weekly starred review.
