Somewhere in the Midwest, Amy Breis is going nowhere.
Amy has a job she hates, a creep boyfriend she’s just dumped, and a best friend she can’t reach on the phone. But at least her (often painfully passive-aggressive) mother bought her a pink unicorn sweatshirt for her birthday. Pink. Unicorn. For her twenty-seventh birthday.
Gliding through the daydreams and realities of a young woman searching for definition, Life with Mr. Dangerous showcases acclaimed cartoonist Paul Hornschemeier’s gift for deadpan humor and dead-on insight with a droll aftertaste—an unlikely but welcome marriage of the bleak and the hopeful.

“It’s a surprisingly rare thing to find the great comic artist who can not only draw with poetry and beauty, but write like a demon as well . . . Hornschemeier’s skills are nearly as verbal as they are visual.”—Publishers Weekly
“If other comics are easy chairs, his work offers the pleasure, and the pain, of reclining on a psychiatrist’s couch.”—Time
“Cringe and laugh and cringe some more—Life With Mr. Dangerous has it all. Also, you will cringe.”—Patton Oswalt
