One Week In The Library – Original Graphic Novel
Written by: W. Maxwell Prince
Illustrated by: John Amor
Published by: Image Comics
Written by W. Maxwell Prince (Judas: The Last Days, The Electric Sublime) and illustrated by John Amor (Judas: The Last Days), One Week In The Library is a fantasy series of short, but interconnected stories, written in various genres – but all within the confines of the sequential art medium.
Here in the library, you see, is a catalogue of every story that has ever been written, monitored by a single librarian – who begins to notice strange occurrences: the books are rebelling!
Sounding like something in the tradition of Italo Calvino or other fabulist writers or, closer to home, something akin to Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman or Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ The Unwritten, or something dreamed up by Grant Morrison, One Week In The Library is seven short stories, one for each day of the week, using comics, infographics, prose and poetry in an experimental push of the tried and true comic book format.
Here’s something new, something very twenty-first century, something written for an acute social media demographic – in 96-pages of living narrative!
Make the run to your local comic nook shop today – where all great stories live – and pick up One Week In The Library for either you…or as a holiday gift for a loved one.
Your reading of comic books won’t be the same!
