”Dodging” is a graphic novel for young readers about twelve-year old aspiring photographer Sam Pearl, who’s just discovered that his father is gay. This time it’s a personal creative process between the partners of our studio, Sharon and Stephen. The project is seeking a progressive publisher… wish us luck. We’re ready to continue with Sam’s story. He has a lot to accomplish by the story’s conclusion and his one-man show. Graphic novels are rich crossbreeds between picture and novel. They deftly bridge literature forms (novels, poetry, plays and the interactive medias), create bridges between countries, audience and genres. One of the most successful and defining publishers has been First Second Books.

From the point of view of Sam, he wonders what a non-tradtional family means. Have they always been around him and is he just recognizing his too?
