"One wild and wooly adventure, it's like Alan Moore and Gary Panter had a love child, rivaling 'Stranger Things' for its beautiful thrills. This is a treasure." -- Toby Barlow
"Tsu and the Outliers" is a graphic novel about a non-verbal boy whose rural existence appears unbearable until rumors of a monstrous giant upend his mundane life. Tsu finds himself at the center of the mystery, as his strange metaphysical connection with the creature is revealed. As the dragnet closes in, Tsu is forced to choose between a dangerous path leading beyond the periphery of human perception or a life without his only friend.
