SelfMadeHero‘s final release for the first half of 2018 is the stylish contemporary psychological thriller Tumult, written by John Harris Dunning with extraordinary art by Michael Kennedy.
Tumult a powerful read, with a striking art style and scratching of the eyeballs story that offers a clever, intriguing mash up of Alfred Hitchcock film-inspired twists and turns with unnerving comic storytelling that left me quite jittery, to be honest… in a good but disturbing way!
In Tumult, Adam Whistler topples himself into emotional free fall by impulsively ending his seemingly perfect relationship. He meets the bewitching and troubled Morgan at a party and is instantly ensnared in her life. When he learns that people close to her are being killed, he’s determined to protect her. Or is it Adam who needs protection… from Morgan?
John Harris Dunning is the writer of graphic novel Salem Brownstone. And was the man who, together with Paul Gravett, put together the terrific Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy exhibition at the British Library. He’s written for GQ, Esquire, Dazed, iD, The Guardian and Metro
23-year-old artist Michael Kennedy brings his singular style and bold colour work to a edge-of-your set script by John Harris Dunning.
Out in time for the summer sun, what better graphic novel to take to the beach?
