Description

NOW IN PAPERBACK!

Two unlikely friends skip through dimensions and encounter weeping giants, alligator islands, and a topsy turvy 2D world, learning to find strength in each other. For fans of Station Eleven and Black Mirror.


"Skip is a flurry of bold and vivid cartooning that pulls you through this tender story of friendship at heart-wrenching speeds. Molly layers every page with such a dense whimsicality that it left me wanting to go back and re-read so I could sink my eyes into the details again and again."
--Sloane Leong, creator of Prism Stalker

"Skip isn't a travelogue -- it's a trip. The point isn't to vicariously explore imaginary worlds, but simply to let your eye float along the stream of fantastical visions Mendoza spins out... A creation this idiosyncratic deserves to find a niche -- or, perhaps, to make one."
--Etelka Lehoczky, NPR

"From the first spread to the last image, Mendoza's gorgeous, surrealist artwork presents imaginative depths both refreshing and disorienting. Poignant catharsis surfaces through tearful declarations and emotional strife as Bloom and Gloopy reflect on their strengths and weaknesses amid unusual environments... An exceptional road taken."
Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW

"Molly Mendoza is a master illustrator. Skip speaks to the universal experience of feeling adrift and out of place, mourning what's past while looking curiously toward and unpredictable future."
--Outsider Comics


A colorful, unpredictable postapocalyptic world comes alive in Skip when two unlikely friends, Bloom and Gloopy, find themselves tossed from dimension to dimension. Gloopy is running toward adventure, and away from their home and friends who don't understand their creative talent. Bloom is desperately trying to return home to their lake, and avoid the terrible violence of the city. Instead, both Bloom and Gloopy find what they need in each other, and bravely return home to challenge their fears and create beauty in their own worlds.
