Missed Connection is an 80 page graphic novel focused on loneliness in young people in a new city.

Reframing this issue through various anecdotes that the characters go through, so the reader knows its ok to feel this way, to be comforted that this feeling can end, and to be confident in being by their self.

Essentially normalising loneliness through a narrative, that suggests that by being open enough, we can make each other feel less alone.
