Soupy Leaves Home: a masterpiece of YA graphic storytelling, about hobos on the open road

Originally published at:

In Soupy Leaves Home, writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Jose Pimienta expand the borders of young adult graphic novels, telling a moving, inspiring tale of Depression-era hobos, identity, gender, suspicion, solidarity, and the complicated business of being true to yourself while living up to your obligations to others.

Anything by Castellucci goes on my list but this presses extra buttons for me. If tramps sound cool to you too check out the classic Thomas Minehan’s Boy and Girl Tramps in America.

Sounds like “Kings in Disguise”.
