John and Naomi were childhood sweethearts whose lives took them in different directions. In a soulless city where ambition and hope go to die, John stumbles upon his old friend while meandering apologetically through a life he didn't choose and the two of them fall in love again. But the painful memories, secrets and nightmares return.

John is tormented by memories from their youth and, as he struggles to understand his own feelings, he realises that Naomi, too, is suffering - and that her troubles could infect and affect everyone around her.



Patrick McEown - sometime Warner Bros. storyboard and Eisner-bagging comic strip artist - cruises in with a story from the heart and absolutely stunning draughtsmanship to create a world that fuses heartbreak and nightmare. McEown gives the very best European BD a run for its money with this sensitive and beautifully drawn book. The colours by Liz Artinan are an additional pleasure.

'Hair Shirt is a wonderful piece of cartooning, filled with sketchy, misshapen lines which give visual weight to memory and its faults... it works best at its darkest, when John’s dreams seem real, and the memories are worse than anyone remembered." - Popmatters.com
