Renowned astronomer, Maggie Hill, is due to deliver a lecture about her astonishing career to a group of science students. She’s also attending her first ever therapy session in order to overcome some debilitating anxiety. Plus, Maggie's heartbroken after she loses communication with her girlfriend... but she doesn't know this yet.
Through facing first herself and then a group of terrifyingly ambitious and canny young women, Maggie is forced to share her greatest achievements and admit her biggest regrets.
Based on Molly Naylor's award-winning play, Lights, Planets, People! is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel about failure, legacy, mental health and communication – both interpersonal and intergalactic.
‘Naylor offers a moving and sometimes humorous presentation of both the most personal moments and the greatest cosmic things that build our world. It’s an empowering piece that questions our approach on such differing themes of mental health and space, making us realise that they might have more in common than you’d think’. - Katrina Bennet, Razz
‘Lizzy Stewart is one of comics’ great observers of those seemingly smaller moments of human existence.’ - Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier
