Excerpt

“A deeply intimate story . . . a slice-of-life comic, an adventure comic and a music comic all rolled into one, born out of a love for all three.” —Paste Magazine

Bassist-turned-junkie Jonny Wells is addicted to his past, and the only way to get there is through the music.

The bassist of a breakout ’90s punk band, Jonny falls apart when his band mate and best friend Kirk commits suicide. Twenty years later he struggles with heroin addiction, lost in the songs they created and desperate to relive the past, when he discovers that he can—literally. With the aid of a mysterious guitar, Jonny begins to make trips back in time, searching for the roots of Kirk’s unraveling. At Nar-Anon meetings and in conversations with his sponsor Emily, he starts to cope with the events that led to Kirk’s death. But by the time Jonny realizes that his visits can’t change the present, he might be too addicted to stop.

“Artistically, the book is a master class on beauty and style . . . From the initial title page to the end of the story, Artist Alex Diotto, Colorist Renzo Podesta, and Letterer Adam Wollet, prove themselves to be masters of their craft and the passion for their work is easily witnessed.” —Comic Crusaders

“Writer of indie comics Pulp and Southern Dog, Jeremy Holt slays on the script for Skip to the End.” —Undercover Capes

“A graphic novel worthy of spiritual preparation, deserving of one’s wholehearted attention where the finer details are meticulously observed.” —XS Noize
