Cartoon Graveyard is a collection of memories, dreams, and reflections on grief. Pages alternate between memories of the period when the author’s father was still alive but passing back and forth between states of disorientation and fleeting lucidity, and the author’s own alternating states dreaming and wakefulness in the wake of his passing.

Hands Up, Herbie! follows artist and activist Herb Perr from a mob-linked Jewish family in Brighton Beach of the 40s and 50s, through the studios of Helen Frankenthaler and Mark Rothko, Reagan-era art activism, and a reckoning with the responsibilities of raising a family. In his debut graphic novel, Joey Perr tells his father’s story with sensitivity and warmth, bringing moments of deep struggle and bright comedy to life with equal panache.
