Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

On a Sunbeam is an epic graphic novel about a girl who travels to the ends of the universe to find a long lost love, from acclaimed author Tillie Walden.

Two timelines. Second chances. One love.

A ragtag crew travels to the deepest reaches of space, rebuilding beautiful, broken structures to piece the past together.

Two girls meet in boarding school and fall deeply in love-only to learn the pain of loss.

With interwoven timelines and stunning art, award-winning graphic novelist Tillie Walden creates an inventive world, breathtaking romance, and an epic quest for love.


"Tillie Walden is the future of comics, and On a Sunbeam is her best work yet. It's a ‘space' story unlike any you've ever read, with a rich, lived-in universe of complex characters." -Brian K. Vaughan, Saga and Paper Girls

Review Quote*

"Tillie Walden is the future of comics, and On a Sunbeam is her best work yet. It's a ‘space' story unlike any you've ever read, with a rich, lived-in universe of complex characters."-Brian K. Vaughan, Saga series and Paper Girls

"On a Sunbeam is a rare treat. It's both a slow-burn romance and a found-family space opera adventure with an engaging cast of characters. But it's the world building that really stands out, with a blend of SF and fantasy in a gloriously strange setting that is so brilliantly original I have no idea how to describe it. I enjoyed every bit of it." -Martha Wells, author of The Murderbot Diaries and The Books of the Raksura

"Enthralling, beautiful, and compelling. I couldn't put this down." -Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice


"On A Sunbeam strikes a magical balance between trippy and tangible, heartbreaking and hilarious. It was so easy to curl up in the art and lose myself in the story."-Becky Chambers, author of The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet
