Aliens write science fiction, clouds drift through sleepscapes, a boy struggles to comprehend his mother’s death, the Helmetman drives through a metropolis under attack, a spinster aunt holds her family hostage till strawberry ice cream arrives on the scene...
Image and word come together to tell the story in the twelve graphic narratives of PAO — an anthology featuring prominent names in the genre and fresh, first-time talent. The visual interpretations range from the highly stylised to the raw, provocative and seemingly natural. And, in tempo and texture, the stories vary from the quirky and dazzling to the profound and contemplative, taking readers on an expansive and hugely enjoyable journey.
