Regular readers will already know how much I have loved the first two books of Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose’s Porcelain series, an intoxicating mixture of fairy tale and science fiction and steampunk elements which offers up glorious artwork and a world of absolute wonders, undercut with with disturbing terrors and horrors. Famously in Brit comics circle they took a preview booklet to Thought Bubble a few months before the first book was due out, to try and generate interest, and boy did it pay off, those free preview booklets became one of the talking points of that year’s Thought Bubble and also caught the eye of a visiting French publisher, with the result that this Brit comics delight has also been making its way in the heady arena of the Franco-Belgian bande dessinee world too. Improper Books repeated their preview trick again at this year’s Thought Bubble, and for those of us who couldn’t be there, or who couldn’t get hold of one before they ran out, Matt Gibbs at Improper has been kind enough to let us post up those preview pages here. Ivory Tower is due early in 2017 from Improper Books – something I am very, very much looking forward to reading:
