Major British comics talent Bryan Talbot (Chester P. Hackenbush, Luther Arkwright, Heart of Empire) has a new and never-serialised 328-page graphic novel published in just a few months. Alice In Sunderland was four years in the making, according to a recent Publisher’s Weekly interview with Talbot. It’s published by Jonathan Cape at the start of March. How can Amazon have such a massive colour graphic-novel available for pre-order for just £11.55? Well, it does. In hardback. Pre-order now.

“In Alice in Sunderland, he shows – triumphantly – how local history is national history in microcosm, how one story begets another. The result is a landmark book in the graphic field.”
