Next Time Around

Billy Mavreas


Everyone has a story.

Sometimes the hardest part is figuring out where they begin. Other times, those beginnings are so utterly astonishing they’re impossible to ignore. An accident, for example, if you survive it, can be a surefire way to find the start of something new—whether it’s a fresh perspective or a rediscovered appreciation for the people who matter most.

In Next Time Around, Montreal artist Billy Mavreas taps into his considerable talents in cartooning, collage, and graphic poetry to tell the dreamlike tale of a near-death experience and the insights that followed.
