"A gently elegiac exploration of our many blind spots..."
The Hooded Utilitarian
"A devastating story that resonates in the subconscious"
"As well as creating a darkly comic, moving and well-observed narrative, Pearson’s drawing style is sometimes familiar and cute but at others deeply unsettling."
"Everything We Miss is Luke Pearson's breakthrough graphic novella, in which he brilliantly wrong-foots your every expectation, fluttering between surreal humor and deep pathos and proving the unique visual-verbal alchemy of comics to capture the ephemeral and symbolize the rawest emotions."
Paul Gravett, editor of 1001 Comics To Read Before You Die
This mix of fantastical and real, of frivolity and heartbreak, that’s what gives Everything We Miss that little bit more. Without them, it would still be an excellent but downbeat read. With them, it becomes sublime, pitch perfect heartbreak and a smile, surreal yet grounded, poignant and absolutely true it captures everything you’ve ever felt about love and loss, about everything you’ve missed.”
Forbidden Planet Blog
"Luke Pearson’s Everything We Miss from Nobrow is a remarkably mature follow-up to his all-ages debut, Hildafolk."
"Pearson, it turns out (as it was meant to turn out, Bokonon reminds us!), is a magician. He’s the kind of illusionist who pulls back the illusory veil of reality to show us what we might have seen for ourselves if only we were awesome."

Luke Pearson's second graphic novel is about primarily the final days of a relationship but also about the real beauty of life which we miss when focused on things seemingly more important, but are in fact just as fleeting.
The drawing style is beautiful and it's monotone colour and shadows match the gloomy feel of the story. That said, it's a very short read and an idea tentatively explored. Some nice ideas and stylish illustrating mean that Luke Pearson will probably write a great comic book one day but "Everything We Miss" is not that book. This is probably only for comics fans who like indie stuff, have spare cash to shell out for a short but well produced hardback, and are emotionally well balanced.
