In Life with Mr. Dangerous cartoonist Paul Hornschemeier explores what can be a tough terrain: early adulthood. The graphic novel focuses on a listless 20-something, Amy Breis. The reader follows her through a series of unsatisfying events: bad relationships, a dead-end job in retail and the ups and downs of long-distance love.
Amy’s escape from the mundane? The absurdist cartoon "Mr. Dangerous", which gave her tale its title.
Eight Forty-Eight recently spoke to Hornschemeier about his new novel and his approach to writing.
On Wednesday, May 25, Hornschemeier will sign copies of his book at Comix Revolution in Evanston.
