Motherlover is by Nicholas Breutzman, John & Luke Holden, and Raighne Hogan, with a foreword by Rob Clough. Funding provided in part by kickstarter.
Motherlover is a tightly-knit anthology, modeling itself off of Drawn & Quarterly’s since retired annual showcase. This one-off volume pairs Minnesotan creators Nicholas Breutzman, John & Luke Holden, and editor Raighne Hogan together for woodsy and weird excursions in dark comedy. Mood rings, disaffected twenty-somethings in NYC, unsupervised nine-year olds in the pursuit, nay, NEED, of finding a porno tape, and suburban white boys buying fake crack — Minnesota’s finest!
PRAISE FOR MOTHERLOVER!!
Breutzman’s style is unusual in that he mixes naturalism in terms of his backgrounds and character designs with slightly loose, rubbery expressions on his characters’ faces.

…the world is weird and the world is uncomfortable.
[Motherlover] has a way of evoking dread and malaise in equal measure.
