10,000 years ago, the Kansa tribe live on the eastern shores of Stone Age Britain, where danger is never far away. Each season brings new adventures, each hunt has its risks, and each grim encounter with the neighbouring tribe is fraught with threat. Poika, a boy on the verge of manhood, must trust the wisdom of his elders and endure life's rites of passage as he finds his place in the tribe. MeZolith is a graphic novel for older children and adults, written by a world-renowned performance storyteller, with extraordinarily immersive illustrations by one of Britain's top film concept artists. Set in what is now North East Yorkshire, before Britain became an island, stories of one tribe's daily struggle for survival are seamlessly interwoven with some of humankind's most ancient myths, fairytales, and legends. Grounded in detailed archaeological research, this is a book of action and adventure, horror and magic, dreams and nightmares.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mezolith is the most important British graphic novel of the last twenty years . . . It's not something to put alongside Tintin, it's something to put alongside Dickens or Steinbeck" (Dave Morris Mirabilis)
"An evocatively written, visually stunning piece of work . . . Those who love graphic novels or just plain good storytelling owe it to themselves to buy this book" (James Lovegrove Financial Times)

"Fabulous . . . Mezolith is one of the gems that emerged from Fickling's attempt at getting a new comic book going. Brilliantly illustrated by Adam Brockbank it is perfect for 9+ readers" (Amanda Craig The Times)
"Violent, beautiful, magical, compelling, this makes you want to go back in time and visit the landscape of the book" (Neel Mukherjee The Times)
"A dazzling evocation of ancient life and lore through the wide eyes of a young boy" (Paul Gravett)
"Evocatively written and visually stunning. Those who love graphic novels or just plain good storytelling owe it to themselves to buy this book." The Financial Times
"An amazing example of world-building at its very finest, with an exhilarating story to boot." Judge Dredd Magazine
"To the comic-reading public, Mezolith is a stunning example of its form. To prehistorians it offers a great deal of inspiration in how we bring to life a long lost world." British Archaeology Journal
