The Return of the Honey Buzzard


Simon, a bookseller, has hit hard times. The financial crisis has hit and sales have slumped; his store looks set to close, and he has become increasingly withdrawn. Returning from his storeroom in the woods, he stops at an isolated railroad crossing. There, he witnesses a suicide. The moment hits him like a bomb.

Withdrawing deeper into himself, Simon is haunted by memories from his past memories repressed, from a time hed prefer to forget. It is only by chance that he meets Regina, a young girl who begins to provide the comfort and support he needs. But who is Regina, and can she help him come to terms with the loss of a childhood friend?

A beautifully drawn and impressively crafted debut from Aime de Jongh, The Return of the Honey Buzzard is a compelling, cinematic and emotionally perceptive graphic novel about confronting the past and starting again.

Aime de Jongh is an award-winning animator, illustrator and comics artist. Having published her first comic book at 17 years old, de Jongh has gone on to produce 10 series, including a daily strip for Dutch newspaper Metro Holland. She lives in Rotterdam.
