Written by Benjamin Read, illustrated by Chris Wildgoose, coloured by André May, and lettered by Jim Campbell, Porcelain: Ivory Tower sees another decade passing, and Lady becoming Mother. Hidden behind the high walls of her tower, cut-off from the world, she has sacrificed everything to keep her Children safe.

Set within a world that’s a magical echo of our own, Ivory Tower is the story of Mother, a revolutionary, who must overcome ruthless enemies and the dark secrets of her past to carve a new future for all her Children.

Released to wide critical acclaim amongst readers, fellow creators, and the comic press, Porcelain: A Gothic Fairy Tale (reviewed here on downthetubes) and Porcelain: Bone China (reviewed here) have gone on to be translated and published in France by Éditions Delcourt.

• The UK independent release of Pocelain: Ivory Tower is scheduled for Summer 2017, and will be followed by a wider international release later in the same year.
