            There's a new artist in town making a new art, knocking Bob's beak out of joint. The subsequent competition to see who is the best artist escalates as the two artists try to outdo each other. It all ends in tears, and the two realise that they are better working together rather t...han against each other. From Marion Deuchars comes this charming and funny follow-up to Bob the Artist and Bob's Blue Period about art and friendship and working together.

            When an aspiring street artist Grafity sees the illegal tenements outside his home destroyed, he finds in the debris, a lone, standing wall--one that'll go on to become a summer-long canvas for the lives of four friends getting by and growing up in the constantly changing and cha...llenging environment that is the city of Mumbai. As Grafity's mural on the wall grows, it chronicles the lives of his friends--Jay, a young man with dreams of being a rapper lured into the dangerous path of a gangster. Chasma, a bright but awkward boy who chronicles his struggles as an outsider trying to belong in this city, by writing letters to strangers, to the city itself. And Saira, who comes to Mumbai with Bollywood dreams but must first survive the reality in this place of gangsters, con-men, friends and lovers. As the long Mumbai summer comes to a close, hearts are broken and leaps of faith, taken. This coming-of-age tale set in Mumbai's loving, unforgiving and chaotic embrace, is a unique exploration of that entirely universal experience--the falling, soaring, the grave permanence and fleeting transience of our adolescent years. From rising comic book stars Anand R. K. and Ram V (Paradiso, These Savage Shores, Batman Secret Files). Listed as the #3 best graphic novel of 2018 by Paste Magazine, enjoy this expanded edition featuring extra content!
