Description

Propelled into a world filled with uncertainty and
desperation, young Joel is pushed toward using violence to solve his problems by
everything and everyone around him. But fighting doesn’t always yield the best
results for a confused and sensitive kid who yearns for a better, more
fulfilling life than the one he was born into, as Joel learns in a series of
brutal conflicts that eventually lead him to question everything he has learned
about what it truly means to fight for one’s life.

Fights is the visceral and deeply affecting memoir
of artist/author Joel Christian Gill, chronicling his youth and coming of age as
a Black child in a chaotic landscape of rough city streets and foreboding
backwoods.

Publisher Review

"Beyond a recounting of a hardscrabble upbringing, Gill's memoir becomes an ode to claiming peace from the experience of violence--and passing that gift on to others."--Publishers Weekly "FIGHTS is somehow brutally raw, funny as hell, deeply sensitive and insightful in each panel."--Nate Powell (March)
