A huge thank-you to Dale Hom for sponsoring the site this week! Hom's new graphic novel, Walk Tall Y'all: Feeling Grumpy in Transmogrified Seattle, launches June 7 with a special event at the Wing Luke Museum. Before you go, stop by our sponsor feature page for a glimpse between the covers.
Hom's art belies the emotional weight he brings to chronicling the changes in Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood, through the eyes of Wallace, who's seeing the city after almost half a century away. What Wallace experiences is more than losing familiar family homes to condos — he's coming back to a Seattle whose economic, racial, and cultural fabric has essentially changed. It's a shock of several kinds, and Hom's clean lines and gentle but direct storytelling are the perfect vehicle.
