Will Morris‘ debut graphic novel The Silver Darlings has arrived just in time for Christmas. If you wandered past the shop when our Nelson window paintings were up you will already be acquainted with the guy’s work. It’s very, very good.
Here’s Blank Slate Books’ blurb:
Ayrshire, 1967. It’s avid photographer Danny’s last summer in his home town before he heads off to Glasgow and to college. But before he leaves the ailing fishing community he has a long week in prospect on board his dad’s fishing boat, The Silver Darling.
Uninspired by the family business and with a head full of modern ideas, Danny decides to challenge the crew’s superstitions and bring ‘a spirit of enlightenment’ to his week at sea. But by taking aboard a strictly forbidden cargo, Danny gets more than he bargained for and learns a few lessons of his own.
