Advance Praise for DISPLACED PERSONS:

"A mammoth, sprawling family saga—both enchantingly surrealistic and cruelly realistic— with a dazzling array of haunting and resonant characters all drawn together through an unlikely paradox. Derek McCulloch delivers an ambitious, complex work that’s not afraid to take chances, and the art by Anthony Peruzzo is richly detailed and evocative.” –Karen Berger, Vertigo founding editor
