  • Map of My Heart


In this collection, while Porcellino is living in isolation and experiencing the pain of divorce he crafts a melancholic, tender graphic ballad of heartbreak and reflection. Known for his sad, quiet honesty rendered in his signature deceptively minimalist style, Porcellino has a command of graphic storytelling as sophisticated as the medium's more visually intricate masters. Few other artists are able to so expertly contemplate the sadness, beauty, and wonder of life in so few lines. "[KING CAT COMICS] swell with passion and heart." -USA TODAY'S POP CANDY "Since 1989, John Porcellino's simple, and simpy beautiful, comics (along with letters, lists, and a few photographs) have been self published to growing acclaim." -MINNEAPOLIS CITY PAGES "Porcellino is a master at miniature poignancy." -ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
