Top Ten Irish Comics: Stone Hewn Sky
I think a lot of people missed this book because, when I bring it up, people always ask “Paddy Lynch did a sci-fi book?!” Well he did and it is the closest thing Irish comics has come to a Philip K Dick story (Paddy Lynch has sited him as one of the influences on the book). Being a big fan of that writer and Paddy Lynch’s art style, creates a mix that easily makes this book a favourite of mine. Morgan Rye’s life starts to unravel around him following a chance meeting with and enigmatic woman. Part elliptical science fiction fable and part environmental fever dream, Paddy Lynch delivers a tense and paranoid comic that asks whether we are truly free to change the path of our life’s trajectory.
