Matt Southworth and Garth Stein

Bestselling author Garth Stein and acclaimed cartoonist Matthew Southworth team up again for the second book in this action-packed coming of age series about a mutant from the Pacific Northwest.  In the eagerly anticipated Book Two, Dr. Kenneth Langner, a world-renowned geneticist and creator of the Cloven species, reveals himself to Seattle Stranger reporter Jake Arthur, who continues his in-depth research on the homeless encampment known as "the Jungle." When Langner turns up dead the next morning, Arthur realizes he's into something far more sinister than he realized. Meanwhile, in an effort to evade the para-military that have begun rounding up Cloven, Tuck is taken to Halcyon Meadows, a bizarre retreat of the true insiders--Supreme court justices, ex-presidents, movie stars, rock musicians, health gurus--those who are really in the know and who gather there every summer to worship goats. And to celebrate the existence of the first human/goat hybrid: The Cloven. And that's when things really start to get weird.

Moody and mysterious and atmospheric as a fever dream, The Cloven is a raucous, funny, and dynamic sci-fi graphic novel series about James "Tuck" Tucker, a genetically modified human organism known as a Cloven, written by Garth Stein (The Art of Racing in the Rain) and drawn by Matthew Southworth (co-creator of the graphic novel series Stumptown), two of today's bestselling and critically acclaimed storytellers.
