In Jim Terry’s book Come Home Indio (Street Noise Press), a graphic memoir, he talks about growing up between two cultures. Born Irish and Native American, he juxtaposes growing up in the mostly white suburban world with the tug of his Native roots in Wisconsin. Along the bumpy road he fumbles with loneliness, cultural confusion and a healthy dose of alcoholism until he ends up at the Standing Rock Conflict in North Dakota, where he begins to see things anew.

“Both uplifting and gut-wrenching, beautiful and terrifying. Terry’s account of losing himself between worlds, and finding home in the balance between them, deserves a place among the all-time great graphic memoirs.” -EZRA CLAYTON DANIELS, author of Upgrade Soul and BTTM FDRS

“Illuminated by bursts of both joy and sorrow. With humbling sensitivity and candor, Jim shares with us his personal journey down emotionally complex paths towards home.” -TIMOTHY TRUMAN, author of Scout

“As raw, honest and human. The kind of work that can only be done in the form of comics, intimately revealing the black and white lines of a worldview shaped by a life.” -TIM SEELEY, author of Hack/Slash and Revival
