COVER ART: Babble From Com.X Due This December
In August of last year we reported on the graphic novel Babble by UK writer Lee Robson and Northern Irish artist Bryan Coyle. What made this story a bit special is that the book is even being printed at all.
Babble was initially set up at Insomnia but was unpublished prior to the company folding in 2010. But in stepped Com.X and gave the book a new home. Well, the book is finally due for release this coming December and will be featured in Diamond’s October catalogue (which comes out at the end of this month).
BOOK DESCRIPTION: Carrie Hartnoll: a girl lost in a life going nowhere fast, until a chance encounter with an ex-boyfriend affords her the opportunity of a whole new career in Ivy League America, working as part of a research team attempting to resurrect the language of Babel – a language, it is theorised, that can be understood by any human, from anywhere in the world.
As Carrie pieces together her fractured personal life, she becomes embroiled in the mystery surrounding the apparent suicide of the project’s original team leader, which propels her to uncover the horrific truth about the language and why it was written out of the history books…
