Hart’s graphic memoir is his attempt to process the crushing pain of his daughter’s loss, and it’s as harrowing and profound as any literary novel. In scratchy black-and-white panels, he traces the strange parabola of grief: 'You’re walking and falling. You’re hurtling and collapsing. You’re here and not here.'
Hart crafts something that reads more like a love letter than an obituary. Rosalie Lightning, in all of its sadness and pain, is focused on exploring the beauty of hope and love that can still be found in the world even after such a tragic loss.
