After the acclaimed indie film "Save the Date "and the bestselling all-ages humor book "Darth Vader and Son," graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown ("Clumsy," "Unlikely") returns to the autobiographical work that first made his reputation. In "A Matter of Life," Jeffrey Brown draws upon memories of three generations of Brown men: himself, his minister father, and his preschooler son Oscar. Weaving through time, passing through the quiet suburbs and colorful cities of the midwest, their stories slowly assemble into a kaleidoscopic answer to the big questions: matters of life and death, family and faith, and the search for something beyond oneself.
