The creative team behind the fantastical, gothic fairytale Porcelain, Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose will be joining us for a signing on Thursday the 30th of November, 6-7pm!
Porcelain: Ivory Tower, number three in the much loved series (out right now from Improper Books!), continues to explore the themes of consciousness, self-determination and the corruption of power in a beautifully illustrated and tightly plotted journey through a fully realised and troubled world. Mixing gothic horror, sci-fi, a fairy tale sensibility and an epic sense of scale we're certain the Porcelain series is a future classic of young adult fiction so we're thrilled to have the creators with us!
Benjamin Read writes fairy tales – no matter what the medium. He is the writer of the acclaimed PORCELAIN series, as well as the folk tale inspired BRIAR, the silent comic BUTTERFLY GATE, and the children’s book NIGHT POST. He wrote the TRUE GRIT and SUPER 8 comic adaptations, and also wrote and produced the films ARMISTICE and 500 MILES NORTH. He is one of the founder members of the Improper Books comics collective, and is fuelled principally by tea and, increasingly, whisky.
Chris Wildgoose is a comic, storyboard and concept artist based in the UK. Chris is mostly known for his work on titles for Improper Books such as the PORCELAIN series, BRIAR and BUTTERFLY GATE. Most recently he has worked on Vertigo’s CMYK YELLOW, DC’s GOTHAM ACADEMY, BATGIRL and Titan’s ASSASSIN’S CREED. Armed with naught but a pencil, ink and brush.
Ben and Chris will be here on Thursday, 30th November, 6-7pm. If you can't make it but would like a signed copy, drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a reservation or a mail order.
