Now that it’s finally finished, we’re very excited to read Katie Green’s upcoming graphic memoir, Lighter Than My Shadow.
It will be published by Jonathan Cape on October 3rd.
This book, brought to you by Warren and Gary Pleece, two legends of the British comics scene, is completely demented. But I like it all the same. Its title, Montague Terrace, comes from the block of flats in which it’s set, a decaying art deco ocean liner of a building.
A hopeless magician and his white rabbit; an ageing quiz show host who spends his time watching old videos of himself; a former special ops agent who has her own way of fighting interfering council officials; a wunderkind experimental novelist with writer’s block and a coke habit; a brilliant but fallen scientist under surveillance 24 hours a day; a 60s crooner on the run from his shabby past… You’ll find all of these at Montague Terrace, and many more.

It’s anyone’s guess what the commissioning editors are smoking in the graphic novels department of Jonathan Cape, but when the results are this interesting, why inquire?
