Don’t Go Without Me is the latest graphic novel from Ignatz and Harvey award-winning artist Rosemary Valero-O’Connell. It features three deeply imaginative and beautifully illustrated stories, which bring together themes of love, loss, longing and connection.
The stories are a challenge to describe without diving into detail. In the first, two lovers are separated while trying to enter an alternative dimension. The second sees a spaceship that runs on memories malfunction in the depths of space. The last is about a giant who, it is prophesied, will soon wake from its centuries-long slumber beneath the sea.
The illustration has to be seen to be believed, so check out publisher ShortBox’s preview pages.
