Nominated for the 2003 Eisner Award for “Best Single Issue”, this touching and compelling narrative tells the true story of a young man who encounters his favorite uncle for the first time in ten years and reflects on a childhood hero through adult eyes. This is a work that resonates with emotion, pain, love, and true sentiment. My Uncle Jeff is the debut entry in beta, a series of graphic novels by Damon Hurd.
“While much of the comics industry’s finest minds are seeking to create media franchises, Damon Hurd and his collaborator Pedro Camello are telling stories that matter, stories about family and sacrifice, real people and lasting consequences. Beautifully illustrated and honest to its core, My Uncle Jeff is the comic that you give to someone you love, just so you can go buy another copy for yourself.” — Rob Vollmar; The Castaways
