The tale of the Hartlepoole monkey is one of those classic grim pieces of “did it happen or not” English history. The full story can be read here, but beware spoilers if you’re intending to read the English translation of acclaimed French BD The Hartlepoole Monkey, by Wilfrid Lupano & Jeremie Moreau, published by our pals at Knockabout Books.
Lupano & Moreau take the story and weave a tragic satire of a tale, illustrated in a lush, moody style. Forbidden Planet International got their hands on a copy and had lots of positive things to say, and we’re lucky enough to have a Gosh! Exclusive Bookplate Edition available!
Featuring an exclusive piece of art by Moreau, signed and numbered and limited to only 200 copies, the bookplate edition costs no more than the standard retail price of £12.99.
The book is due to be released in October, and if you’d like to preorder a copy, email as at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mail order folks, you can preorder now, and we’ll contact you with up to date shipping costs once the book is released!
