Regarding Dandelions is a comic book for people who don't (know they) like comic books. A 30-something coming-of-age story, the series follows Jake Stanton and Ellie Martin through present day narration and first person flashbacks. Jake and Ellie grew up together and each faced their own brand of adversity in what should have been an idyllic upbringing in a Chicago suburb. Now in their early 30s Jake learns he has late stage lymphoma, forcing both him and Ellie to confront mortality and the issues they've left dormant throughout adulthood.
Issue 10 catches up with Jake and Ellie visiting their childhood homes before returning to Indianapolis for Jake's treatment. Tensions rise between Jake and his father; Jake and Ellie's relationship shifts.
