Home Free by Tom Toro, New GoComics Webcomic

New Yorker cartoonist Tom Toro has created a new comic for GoComics.

Home Free is a digital comic strip that follows the wacky-yet-loveable Szabo family. Mr. Szabo, hardworking and frugal-to-a-fault, has bitten off a little more than he can chew in home improvement projects. And if the hassle of a home reno wasn’t enough, he and his wife, Mrs. Szabo, and their two kids, Milo and Julia, are displaced as a result of it, forcing them to camp out in their backyard—indefinitely.

Home Free was co-developed by our team at Andrews McMeel Universal and famed cartoonist Tom Toro, whose work includes hundreds of cartoons for The New Yorker and the children’s books, I’m Terrified of Bath Time and How to Potty Train Your Porcupine.

The comic strip(?) panel(?) debuted Monday July 25, 2022.

The GoComics Team interviewed Tom as they introduced the comic.

Can you tell us a sneak peek? (Be as vague as you want!)

Spoiler alert—the Szabo’s home renovation will never be finished! (But is it really a spoiler if it’s the entire premise of the comic strip?) Also—I’m not making any promises here—but at some point a reality TV show might document the Szabo’s plight.
