Ellen Lindner’s ‘Black Feather Falls’ joins SEQUENTIAL digital line-up

The Black Feather Falls Book 1 by Ellen LinderSEQUENTIAL, the digital comics app created by Panel Nine, has just added The Black Feather Falls, the first of a range of books by Britain’s Soaring Penguin Press.

The Black Feather Falls is by Ellen Lindner, the American author of Undertow and editor of The Strumpet. It tells the story of Tina Swift, an American woman in 1920s London who witnesses a murder. Book one of a four-part series, this tale of mystery will lead her back through the trenches of World War I, the offices of British state and to a criminal’s lair.

Comics journalist and curator Paul Gravett said of the book, “Sharply dialogued and elegantly designed and coloured, with a keen eye for period locations, manners and fashions, notably her passions for eyewear and knitwear, Lindner’s mystery entices and intrigues in the very best Agatha Christie tradition”.

Forbidden Planet called it “Beautiful … such a striking look of flat colours that really deliver a stylised look at the 20s”.

The Black Feather Falls is available on SEQUENTIAL for iPad for just GBP 1.99 / USD 2.99
