    Jon McNaught: Dockwood

Take a look at Jon McNaught's exquisite new graphic novella, Dockwood

Posted by James Cartwright,

If you love Jon McNaught as much as I do (you don’t) you’ll be pretty freaking excited to know that he’s just released a brand new book through Nobrow Press. Dockwood is the biggest and most complex offering that Jon’s ever produced, with a larger format, more pages and more colours than he’s ever worked with before. What’s more he’s beefed up the content of his images giving them a visual richness while maintaining the beautiful simplicity of his narrative style.

Like Birchfield Close, there’s not a lot going on in the Little town of Dockwood, but the beauty of Jon’s storytelling is in his attention to the tiny, mundane details of everyday life; and it’s here, again, that he’s really managed to excel. Exceptional stuff from one of Britain’s greatest comics talents.
