Graphic Literature

No longer rashly dismissed as cartoonish fripperies, today’s graphic literature is every bit the equal of its contemporary fiction counterpart. Whether telling original stories of depth and complexity, paying tribute to important figures past and present, or filtering established literature through the graphic prism, there is nothing that cannot be achieved by the judicious juxtaposition of word and image.

"The week after I finished the last page of Jimmy Corrigan I immediately started a new long story based on characters who had originated as parodies, but whom now I wanted to humanize... amidst a setting of memories of my Omaha childhood and Nebraska upbringing." - Chris Ware

Now, twenty years later, Ware is publishing Rusty Brown in book form. It is, he says, 'a fully interactive, full-colour articulation of the time-space interrelationships of six complete consciousnesses on a single Midwestern American day and the tiny piece of human grit about which they involuntarily orbit.'

The six characters are Rusty Brown himself, a shy schoolkid obsessed with superheroes, his father `Woody' Brown, an eccentric teacher at Rusty's school, Chalky White, another schoolboy, Alison White, Chalky's sister, Jason Lint, an older boy who bullies Rusty and Chalky and fancies Alison, and the boys' teacher, Joanne Cole.

Ware tells each of their stories in minute detail (or as he puts it, 'From childhood to old age, no frozen plotline is left unthawed'), producing another masterwork of the comics form that is at once achingly beautiful, heartbreakingly sad and painfully funny.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2018

Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction 2019

'The best book - in any medium - I have read about our current moment ... A masterpiece.' - Zadie Smith

Where is Sabrina? The answer is hidden on a videotape, a tape which is en route to several news outlets, and about to go viral.

A landmark graphic novel, already hailed as one of the most exciting and moving stories of recent years, Sabrina is a tale of modern mystery, anxiety, fringe paranoia and mainstream misinformation.

It is a book that tells the story of those left behind in the wake of tragedy, has important things to say about how we live now, and possesses the rare power to leave readers pulverised.
