SelfMadeHero’s psychological graph novel thriller Tumult on sale now

Tumult by John Harris Dunning and Michael Kennedy - Cover

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!
