'NEW DAWN FADES: A Graphic Novel About Joy Division & Manchester' - now ON SALE!!
BORDERLINERS: True Realities’ is a fast-moving 21st century espionage tale with more than a nod to TV’s ‘The Prisoner’, ‘Spooks’, and the Jason Bourne movie franchise, not to mention the mind-bending sci-fi stories of Philip K Dick (‘Blade Runner’, ‘Total Recall’, ‘Minority Report’, etc.), and the mind-blowing world of quantum physics. The grittily realistic graphic novel finds double-crossed government agents fighting to recover their sanity, and hit back against a corrupt department of M.I.5., whilst uncovering an incredible multi-universe spanning conspiracy.
BORDERLINERS costs £7 (Plus £2 P&P), and can be ordered by emailing me at email@example.com
"Gorman’s art certainly complements the dark undercurrents of his story though. It’s shadowy, brooding and atmospheric with a photo-realistic style that gives it both a gritty gravitas and, as contradictory as it sounds, also an almost unearthly quality at the same time. Most fitting for a tale that is set in a world that is both recognisably ours and yet one step detached from it as well. His evocation of a McGoohan-esque confluence of events is also well-realised with a feeling of the fatalistically inescapable to Marley’s plight; of a man whose life has always essentially been in the ownership of others."
