Two of Jonathan Cape’s leading lights come together to reveal how their imaginations and brilliant-storytelling find their way onto the comics page.
Hannah Berry is one of the talented young artists at the forefront of the new golden age for British comic art. Her first graphic novel, Britten & Brulightly, was published by Jonathan Cape while she was still studying. The Daily Telegraph said it was ‘superb’. The New Statesman described her second graphic novel Adamtine as doing 'horror in the traditional way, while using the quirks of the medium to ratchet up the fear'.
Isabel Greenberg is a London-based illustrator and writer who won the Cape/Comica/Observer Graphic Short Story Prize in 2011. In her debut book, The Encyclopedia of Early Earth out October 2013, Isabel Greenberg has created an entire world and populated it with gods and monsters and described as “a book of incredible beauty which will appeal far beyond the traditional graphic novel market”
