Swoon Now! The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil

"Beneath the skin of everything, is something nobody can know. The job of the skin is to keep it all in and never let anything show."

Smart, clear, playful but carefully designed pencil-work from Observer/Jonathan Cape short story winner Stephen Collins (see here for his website) in his rather enormous new graphic novel out now entitled The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil (Jonathan Cape); an hypnotic book that explores the nature of neat, knowable order and unpredictable, "evil" chaos lurking just beneath the surface (of the skin). UPDATE: See here for TheGuardian's glowing review.
