Imagine Sex and the City written by a gay Charlie Brown. A graphic novel memoir with LGBT-themed tales of love and loss In this autobiographical work, Patrick Atangan documents the sad hilarity of his love life, from awkward first encounters, to finding out that the great guy you've been dating already has a boyfriend, to the sad inevitability of a break up. With a dark sense of humor, this work artfully navigates the perils of the gay world.


"An elegant work that successfully transforms deeply personal moments into a meaningful exploration of the universal feelings of coming-of-age."  —Booklist on Invincible Days

"Atangan's beautiful art and attention to authentic detail cast a spell of enchantment."  —Publishers Weekly on Tree of Love

"Marvelous artwork, remarkable, and unique book."  —Library Journal starred review on Tree of Love

"A seriocomic chronicle of romantic disappointment. Plenty of humor, poignant." —Ray Olson, Booklist
