One of the youngest ever Eisner winners, incredible talent Tillie Walden presents a stunning queer space opera – her greatest work to date.
On a Sunbeam is the story of Mia, interwoven between her time as a rebellious schoolgirl at a boarding school in space and her time as crewmember aboard the spacecraft Aktis, where she travels the deepest reaches of space to rebuild and restore beautiful broken-down structures. As the past and present weave together, we discover more about Mia and her roots and how they connect with her present on Aktis. In Walden's words, 'The road ahead is not a comfortable, simple one.'
Walden's inimitable style and presentation are more fully-formed and gorgeous than ever before as she works with her signature themes of sexuality and gender, the individual in landscape, first love and awesome cats.
Originally published as a webcomic, On a Sunbeam was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2017 and won Best Webcomic with Walden winning Best Artist at the 2017 Broken Frontier Awards.
Part love story, part epic space adventure, On a Sunbeam is a masterpiece from an explosive, unmissable talent.
