Chasing Echoes is a Family’s Pilgrimage to Poland: From Auschwitz to Synagogues to… An Elton John Concert?

Like many families, the Blooms are keen to reconnect with their past. And so it’s decided that the entire extended family will go on a pilgrimage to their grandfather’s pre-Holocaust home in Poland. Inspired by real events, the original graphic novel Chasing Echoes, by Eisner-nominated writer Dan Goldman and acclaimed artist George Schall, follows the chaotic, quirky Blooms as they return to the homeland of their since-passed patriarch to search for his family’s mill, abandoned many years ago after the Nazis moved in.

Chasing Echoes will be published by Humanoids, the publisher of some of the world’s most groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy graphic novels, as part of the company’s acclaimed LifeDrawn imprint, which showcases deeply personal and political stories inspired not by science fiction but the world around us.

The Blooms are, well, a mess. Orthodox cousin Ruach is struggling without a husband in Israel. Agnostic Uncle Jack grapples with finding meaning in an indifferent world. And then there’s Malka, the family’s black sheep who is broke, recently divorced, and the Bloom family’s self-appointed historian. As she discovers from an ill-timed Facebook post, all of Malka relatives are finally making a decades-in-the-planning trip to the Old Country… except for her. After finagling herself a ticket as the self-appointed “Keeper of the Family Archives,” it becomes clear that the family has drifted apart and everyone’s brought more baggage than just their suitcases. And once the Blooms are stuck together on a rickety bus as they travel through Poland, the complicated family dynamics that bubble up can no longer be ignored as they butts heads on complicated subjects like otherness, memory, faith, and the slipperiness of time.

What does it mean to never forget? What do we owe not only to past generations but to future generations? What would healing look like, if it were possible? Chasing Echoes grapples with these tough, unanswerable questions—and does so with big-hearted empathy and humor. We follow the Bloom family as they travel from Auschwitz to synagogues to an Elton John concert and, finally, to the very place that they’ve been looking for. When confronted with their reflection in the ruins of their grandfather’s old mill, they realize that they’ve been running from themselves—and each other—for too long.

Chasing Echoes will be available in bookstores on November 11th and in comic shops on November 12.
