Two cartoonists — Forsman (Netflix’s The End of the Fxxxing World) and de Radigues (Bastard, international prize winner), whose graphic novels star drifters, criminals, and outlaws — team up to tell the story of a prodigal mother’s return.

A cross-Atlantic collaboration, Hobo Mom was drawn simultaneously. Both cartoonists’ clean line styles fit together perfectly to tell the story of Tom, who lives a simple life with his pre-teen daughter, Sissy. Her mother, Natasha, who left to hop trains and has become a vagrant, shows up on the doorstep of the family she abandoned years ago. There, Natasha finds an upset husband (who is still deeply in love with her), and a little girl yearning for a mother. Can someone who covets independence settle down?
