Dark Satanic Mills
“Any story that features a fanatical, fascistic church that employs Soldiers of Truth to beat up atheists gets my vote! Excellent!”
Pat Mills, creator of 2000AD
“Sensitive about religion, it will cause any teenager to think more deeply about the world.”
“This graphic novel felt like a meeting of the art of Sin City and the gothic style of The Sandman series and I loved it.”
“A dark and thrilling story beautifully complimented by the illustrations – dark and violent.”
The School Librarian
Set in a near-future Britain, Dark Satanic Mills tracks a young woman’s journey from the flooded landmarks of London to the vast, scorched and abandoned hills of the North. Framed for a murder she did not commit, the innocent yet resourceful Christy has no other choice but to run for her life.
Both a cautionary tale and a rip-roaring road trip, Dark Satanic Mills is altogether an intelligent, captivating and thrilling ride – told in exhilarating shades of light and dark.
A powerful new story and debut comic book in collaboration with brother Julian Sedgwick and internationally renowned comics artist John Higgins and Marc Olivent.
