The story taes a look back at Sorese and his history of pets, something that most of us will empathize with. If it’s not the goldfish that ate its bowl mate to the way that the love and trauma of childhood pets is very much part of what makes us adults; and living with pets is one of the defining elements of our adult life.
As he did with Curveball, a gorgeously illustrated graphic novel about romance and rejection in a SF setting, Sorese brings enormously appealing art to the project.
Like we said, have a tissue ready. Fair warning.
