Annotation

Four imaginative tales from the mind of master storyteller Neil Gaiman come to life in this graphic novel adaptation.

Summary

From Sunday Times-bestselling author Neil Gaiman and Eisner-Award winning artist P. Craig Russell, Scott Hampton and Paul Chadwick comes an imaginative graphic novel anthology of four fantastical tales: The Problem of Susan, October in the Chair, Locks and The Day the Saucers Came.

Two stories and two poems. All wondrous and imaginative about the tales we tell and experience.

Where the incarnations of the months of the year sit around a campfire sharing stories, where an older college professor recounts a Narnian childhood, where the apocalypse unfolds, and where the importance of generational storytelling is seen through the Goldilocks fairy tale. These four graphic novel adaptations have something for everyone and are a must for Gaiman fans.
