Ace British independent publisher Improper Books released a free preview of Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose‘ upcoming Porcelain: Ivory Tower at Thought Bubble earlier this month, and supporting comic shops across the UK are giving them out too.
They’ve kindly given us permission to share some pages of this third book in the frankly, brilliant Porcelain saga, out next year, here and you can download the whole preview here.
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.
