An eyewitness account of the 2015 European “migrant crisis”

While exploring out-of-the-way places in Budapest, Hungary, a vagabond named Langosh and his faithful dog, Peppi, stumble on the vestiges of the region’s war torn past. Through streets, alleys, tunnels, train stations, abandoned buildings and the countryside, they witness the effects of colliding social, political, and interpersonal situations. However, they soon discover the stark difference between choosing a transient lifestyle and being forced from one’s home and country. Langosh and Peppi meet people whose tragic personal struggles are enmeshed with the national struggles that continue to divide and destroy so many lives, and witness the disturbing global rise of nationalism. Influenced by Hideo Azuma, Guy Delisle and Joe Sacco, Veronica Post examines the modern dilemma of what it means to be human and to call a place home.

About Veronica Post

Veronica Post is an award-winning graphic novelist born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Following a brief and disillusioning attempt at art college and a life-altering breakup in her hometown, she moved to Montreal, where she found happiness completing a diploma in fine cabinetry, playing drums in punk bands, eating poutine and making comic zines. She then spent several years traveling by train throughout Europe, Canada and America.

It was while settled in Eastern Europe, walking daily through the outdoor markets and trainyards drinking goat milk and rakia with her Siberian friend, that she created the characters Langosh and Peppi and began working on what would become “Fugitive Days”, published by Conundrum Press. She continues to create work based on these characters and looks forward to publishing more books exploring their world, and her own.
