Melissa Mendes

Emergencies in Central New York

We’re always thrilled to add a new chapter of Melissa Mendes’ historical fiction comic, The Weight to our catalog! Issue Nine does not disappoint, as it mixes the urgency of a farming accident and the quiet solitude of a night time walk among fireflies. Melissa’s ability to capture small moments continues to shine in this deep and satisfying series based on her grandfather’s memoir.
