Jeremy Knowles is a 17-year-old outcast who dreams of being a great artist. But when he suffers a severe mental breakdown brought on by bullying and other pressures at school, his future is called into question - as is his very existence! Can he survive the experience through the healing power of art? And just what does it mean to be "crazy," anyway?
Originally self published in 2013, Renegade welcomes Elaine to our roster of award winning graphic novel creators, with her breakout book Look Straight Ahead.
"Will's novel is deep, thought-provoking, and a delight for readers who enjoy introspective, character-driven stories that examine the meaning of reality and sanity."
- Library Journal
"An early sequence of his drawing, which descends into [the character's] own visions, is both startlingly accomplished cartooning and a disturbing foreshadowing of what's to come. [The artwork] makes his illusions seductively attractive." - Publishers Weekly
"Look Straight Ahead is the comic I didn't know I couldn't live without. It's a gorgeous dreamscape inside a perfectly realized gut-level reality, I love it. You'll love it. Read this book - you'll be haunted, amused, and quite possibly brought to tears." - Gail Simone
