In The Vagabonds, Josh Neufeld uses gentle humor and a keen eye for revelatory detail to explore religion, global politics and the mysteries of everyday life, in locales as diverse as the Thai countryside, San Francisco and New York City.
Stranded in a remote corner of Thailand, Josh and Sari are taken in by a family of Baptist missionaries. New perspectives — the missionary view of Thai life and the Buddhist view of fireboats — force them to confront their own spiritual longings.
Comics Worth Reading observes that Neufeld’s comics “provide a street-level view of other cultures, with nothing whitewashed…. The stories often remind us of the point of travelling — to experience and come to terms with the unknown, and ultimately to address your own spirituality and reason for being.” Isn’t it time you took a trip with The Vagabonds?
