Every year, nearly one million people die from suicide... More than 20 times as many people attempt... What if they had waited just one more day? The Next Day is a groundbreaking graphic novella constructed from intimate interviews with survivors of near-fatal suicide attempts. In this poetic and profound philosophical exploration, four seemingly ordinary people each offer haunting personal insight into life, the decision to end it, and what comes after... The Next Day graphic novella is an exciting hybrid of documentary film and comic book, co-written by former social worker Paul Peterson and filmmaker Jason Gilmore, and illustrated by acclaimed cartoonist John Porcellino.

About the Author:

Produced and Published by Pop Sandbox Written by Paul Peterson and Jason Gilmore Illustrated by John Porcellino Directed by Jason Gilmore Edited by Richard Poplak Written by a social worker and playwright, directed by a filmmaker, illustrated by an acclaimed fine artist and cartoonist, and simultaneously developed for the web by an award-winning animator and technical production team with the National Film Board of Canada, The Next Day is an exciting hybrid of documentary film, animation, comic book and interactive storytelling planned for release in May 2011. Acclaimed illustrator John Porcellino was born in Chicago, in 1968, and has been writing, drawing, and publishing minicomics, comics, and graphic novels for over twenty-five years. His celebrated self-published series King-Cat Comics, begun in 1989, has inspired a generation of cartoonists. Diary of a Mosquito Abatement Man, a collection of King-Cat stories about Porcellino's experiences as a pest control worker, won an Ignatz Award in 2005, and Perfect Example, first published in 2000, chronicles his struggles with depression as a teenager. King-Cat Classix and Map of My Heart, published in 2007/2009 by Drawn & Quarterly, offer a comprehensive overview of the zine's first sixty-one issues, while Thoreau at Walden (2008) is a poetic expression of the great philosopher?s experience and ideals. According to cartoonist Chris Ware, "John Porcellino's comics distill, in just a few lines and words, the feeling of simply being alive" and Entertainment Weekly proclaimed that "Porcellino is a master at miniature poignance." Porcellino's work has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Swedish, Italian, and Korean. Pop Sandbox is an award winning multimedia production and publishing company. Their inaugural release, KENK: A Graphic Portrait, is a ground-breaking 300-page journalistic comic book surrounding "the world's most prolific bicycle thief" (The New York Times) built from more 30 hours of documentary footage taken over the year leading up to his high-profile arrest. KENK was officially released in Toronto, Canada on May 6 2010 at a packed event that attracted more than 500 people during the Hot Docs International Documentary Film Festival and Toronto Comic Arts Festival. It was the first graphic novel ever excerpted nationally by the Globe & Mail and the first graphic novel ever featured on the cover of Now Magazine, Canada's biggest weekly newspaper. KENK's release was prominently covered by more than 50 media across the country, including lead features on CBC Television's The National and CBC Radio's Q with Jian Ghomeshi. One month into release KENK entered second edition and was midway to becoming a national best seller. Most recently, KENK was a special presentation at the International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam. It has been named a Best Book of 2010 by Quill & Quire, Canada's top literary magazine, and has been adopted for course curriculum by Ryerson University.
