On to the Next Dream

7x7 Magazine

"The local genius behind the popular All Over Coffee comic strip that ran in the SF Chronicle for more than 12 years, has now doodled his way into a seriously San Franciscan book. On to the Next Dream is a series of drawings and stories from Madonna's own experience being evicted from his home in the Mission, and depicts the madness of the gentrifying megalopolis with the absurdity of magical realism. Of course, there's nothing magical about an overinflated housing bubble, but at least Madonna will have you laughing until the very last page."—Mikaela Luke

"Progress—that is, gentrification—marches on in San Francisco, for better and for worse, in this fantastical narrative from the creator of All Over Coffee. What separates On to the Next Dream from other stories of gentrification is the strange sense of unreality (oddly reminiscent of Norton Juster's The Phantom Tollbooth, of all things) that accompanies artist/writer Paul Madonna’s fictionalized struggle to survive in a rapidly changing San Francisco."—Deborah Krieger, Popmatters

"Much has been written abut the 'tech wars' that have made living in San Francisco an impossible dream for old-timers and young workers. For writer and graphic artist Paul Madonna, the issue became personal when he found himself evicted from his Mission District home. Combining narrative and his distinctive graphics, "On to the Next Dream" depicts Madonna's struggle to find new digs."—Georgia Rowe
