about

"Tillie Walden is the future of comics, and On a Sunbeam is her best work yet. It's a 'space' story unlike any you've ever read, with a rich, lived-in universe of complex characters." -Brian K. Vaughan, Saga and Paper Girls

Two timelines. Second chances. One love.

A ragtag crew travels to the deepest reaches of space, rebuilding beautiful, broken structures to piece the past together.

Two girls meet in boarding school and fall deeply in love-only to learn the pain of loss.

With interwoven timelines and stunning art, award-winning graphic novelist Tillie Walden creates an inventive world, breathtaking romance, and an epic quest for love.

Editorial Reviews

"Walden creates the intoxicating effect of a universe as mysterious as our real one." -The Atlantic"Phenomenal . . . Utterly mesmerizing . . . A remarkable, stunning comic." -Booklist, starred review"This masterful blend of science fiction-inflected school drama, road trip, and adventure is nothing less than marvelous." -Publishers Weekly, starred review"A stunning interpretation of interstellar life . . . Bound to be a sci-fi favorite, especially for teens who also appreciated Nina LaCour's We Are Okay." --School Library Journal, starred review"Both gently romantic and heartbreaking, the story ultimately celebrates love and the importance of chosen family. An affirming love story." -Kirkus"Watching Mia and Grace rekindle their love against the backdrop of a bleak, mystifying universe is deeply satisfying." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"[A] pageturning and profoundly moving read." -Horn Book"Tillie Walden is the future of comics, and On a Sunbeam is her best work yet. It's a 'space' story unlike any you've ever read, with a rich, lived-in universe of complex characters." -Brian K. Vaughan, Saga series and Paper Girls"On a Sunbeam is a rare treat. It's both a slow-burn romance and a found-family space opera adventure with an engaging cast of characters. But it's the world building that really stands out, with a blend of SF and fantasy in a gloriously strange setting that is so brilliantly original I have no idea how to describe it. I enjoyed every bit of it." -Martha Wells, author of The Murderbot Diaries and The Books of the Raksura"Enthralling, beautiful, and compelling. I couldn't put this down." -Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice"On A Sunbeam strikes a magical balance between trippy and tangible, heartbreaking and hilarious. It was so easy to curl up in the art and lose myself in the story." -Becky Chambers, author of The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet
