BOOM! Studios has shared a first look at Happiness Will Follow from Mike Hawthorne. The graphic novel tells the true story of enduring abuse and discovering a love of art that helped him build a home in America.
Mike Hawthorne’s mother Blanca Otero, was a proud though atypical Puerto Rican woman from Santurce, San Juan who moved to the mainland, where she became a single mother and struggled to raise her son alone in New York City, a place that tormented them both with its unforgiving nature. But when Mike falls victim to a death curse—a haunting sign of the old country that his mother could never truly escape—she begins a series of events that drive him away from her both physically and emotionally, leaving him to grapple with his complicated relationships with his mother, identity, and heritage.
Happiness Will Follow is scheduled to arrive on July 15, 2020.
