When the Swiss comic book artist David Boller left his home country to work professionally in the American comic book industry he had no idea where his journey would take him. Through the friendship to a famous American artist he meets his future wife Rachel. But the impending threat of her suffering from kidney failure would alter his life forever. ENDLESS SKY is not just about immigration and artisic self-dicovery but also tackles the moraly difficult subject of organ transplation.
When David Boller returned to Switzerland after his 17 year long absence, he began to serialize his adventures on his website Zampano in weekly installments as well published the chapters in the German print COMIX in monthly installments. After three years of work ENDLESS SKY has now been published as 280 page graphic novel in two editions.
David Boller explains:„I wanted to tell a traditional story with a beginning, a middle and an end and not just talk about some random moments from my life. I think I succeeded at delivering a compelling story since the feedback from the German edition has been overwhelmingly positive.“
