9781907704178: Everything We Miss

On the dawn horizon, a pine tree all too briefly uproots itself. It dances . . . and nobody sees.
The low drone of the car's engine is heard and ignored from sleepy bedroom windows for miles around.

Have you ever wondered what goes on in your life when you're looking the other way? Perhaps you're so drawn into what's going on with you that you fail to notice the events taking place in your periphery—or even right under your nose? In Everything We Miss, Luke Pearson explores the dying days of a failing relationship through the infinitesimal unseen moments that surround it—and us. Pearson's most ambitious project to date is a poignant and empathetic graphic novella from one of the most exciting young creators in British comics. As well as an essential showcase of Pearson's astonishing visual storytelling ability, this is a book for anyone who's ever experienced loss, or agonized about what they have yet to find.

Luke Pearson, a comic book artist, author, and illustrator, lives in Tamworth, United Kingdom.

About the Author:

Luke Pearson, a recent graduate of Loughborough University, UK has contributed to a number of comic anthologies in the UK as well as self-publishing a number of small-run homemade comics. Everything We Miss is his second book for Nobrow Press.

Review:


"A gently elegiac exploration of our many blind spots..."
The Hooded Utilitarian

"A devastating story that resonates in the subconscious"
Publishers Weekly

"As well as creating a darkly comic, moving and well-observed narrative, Pearson’s drawing style is sometimes familiar and cute but at others deeply unsettling."
Design Week

"Everything We Miss is Luke Pearson's breakthrough graphic novella, in which he brilliantly wrong-foots your every expectation, fluttering between surreal humor and deep pathos and proving the unique visual-verbal alchemy of comics to capture the ephemeral and symbolize the rawest emotions."
Paul Gravett, editor of 1001 Comics To Read Before You Die

This mix of fantastical and real, of frivolity and heartbreak, that’s what gives Everything We Miss that little bit more. Without them, it would still be an excellent but downbeat read. With them, it becomes sublime, pitch perfect heartbreak and a smile, surreal yet grounded, poignant and absolutely true it captures everything you’ve ever felt about love and loss, about everything you’ve missed.”
Forbidden Planet Blog

"Luke Pearson’s Everything We Miss from Nobrow is a remarkably mature follow-up to his all-ages debut, Hildafolk."
John Martz

"Pearson, it turns out (as it was meant to turn out, Bokonon reminds us!), is a magician. He’s the kind of illusionist who pulls back the illusory veil of reality to show us what we might have seen for ourselves if only we were awesome."
Good Ok Bad
