Volume 1 - 1st printing. "Fugitive Days!"
Story and art by Veronica Post.
This debut graphic novel tells the story of the 2015 European "migrant crisis" in Budapest, Hungary through the perspective of Langosh and Peppi, a vagabond and his faithful dog.
Based on Post's own experiences, Langosh and Peppi escape the pressures of conformity by exploring out-of-the-way places, where they stumble on the vestiges of the war torn region's hidden past. However, Langosh and Peppi discover the stark difference between choosing a transient lifestyle, and being forced from one's home and country.
We meet people whose tragic personal struggles are enmeshed with the national struggles that continue to divide and destroy so many lives, see families torn apart due to ignorance and fear, and witness the disturbing global rise of nationalism.
Softcover, 240 pages, B&W.

Volume 2 - 1st printing. "Hot to Trot!" Story and art by Veronica Post. As Langosh and Yeva embark on an epic cross-country journey, they discover that old wounds-and differing personal experiences-have begun to threaten their close-knit friendship. As they explore big cities, small towns, prairies and mountains, Langosh opens up to Yeva about his experience of police brutality, and the stark difference between how they respond to the situation leads to deep reflection on how the past informs their current choices. The more they seek to influence each other, the more obscured their path becomes. As Yeva comes to understand the unjust act of violence that changed his life forever, she struggles with how Langosh decides to respond to what happened. Have the values that he formed in response to harm become barriers to his personal growth? Is Yeva callous to the realities that he faces? Veronica Post examines how we respond to structual harm, the power and limitations of personal agency, and the divide between individual freedoms and collective responsibility. Softcover, 350 pages, B&W. Cover price $25.00.
