The Book of Hope is Now Digital

CoverAn exploration into quotidian moments and timeless humor, the Fantagraphics debut of Finnish artist Tommi Musturi The Book of Hope is now available digitally.

In a way that only the medium of comics can, The Book of Hope slows the reader down to the rhythms of the silent life of a retired couple living in a rural countryside. But behind the static, routine moments, something bigger takes shape — a flash of encroaching death starts to consume the husband leading to all-encompassing visions and important questions.

The strong presence of silence and nature reflect the arctic exotica of Musturi’s native Finland, while The Book of Hope contains a relatability, eloquence, and economy that will remind American readers of Chris Ware’s Jimmy Corrigan. The Book of Hope can be yours today through both comiXology and Sequential.
