Ever since the days of his massive award-winning debut Box Office Poison, Alex Robinson has been one of the indie comics community's biggest stars — "A master cartoonist," as Publishers Weekly put it. Now, like Halley's comet, he's completed another lengthy trip around the solar system and come back with a powerful new graphic novel: Our Expanding Universe!
The award-winning author of Box Office Poison, Tricked, and Too Cool to Be Forgotten returns to his home turf, as a small constellation of city-dwellers take a frightening step into the unknown: parenthood.
Amid dinner parties, game nights, and hospital stays, a once-tight group of friends wrestle with the shifting shapes of their lives. Under the pressures of marriage and the passage of time, will they cling to the past, leap into the future, or self-destruct? Hey, not every implosion leads to a Big Bang...
