Gareth Brookes will be here to launch his new Myriad graphic novel, A Thousand Coloured Castles, on Thursday the 20th April from 7-9pm!
One of the most unique artistic voices in UK comics, we’re always keenly interested in Gareth’s new output. A Thousand Coloured Castles doesn’t look like it’s going to disappoint, with Gareth utilising crayons to give the work a thick, substantial feel while the colour palette lends the whole work a surreal, dreamy aspect.
“Myriam is seeing things, and so can we, but her husband Fred is adamant it’s all a lot of nonsense. In A Thousand Coloured Castles Brookes once again twitches the net curtains of the suburban south in this gloriously crayoned follow-up to the prize-winning The Black Project.”
The Black Project was one of our favourite books of 2013, and from what we’ve seen of the new book Gareth has lost none of his visionary approach to the medium, or the wonderfully observed humanity he brings to his characters. One of the first must-reads of 2017!
Gareth will be here to raise a glass and sign copies of A Thousand Coloured Castles on Thursday the 20th April from 7-9pm. If you can’t make it down, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a reservation or mail order. You can keep up with any updates at the Facebook event page here.
