We are thrilled to announce that new talent Elliot Baggott will be joining Great Beast to release his first graphic novel, Hundred Metre Garden, later this year.
Currently being serialised online, Hundred Metre Garden (100MG for short) is a story about four friends who move into a mouldy South London house with big plans to make it the ultimate Lad’s Pad. But as their string of planned parties trails off, a deep apathy sets in. There’s something not right with the house; and as the long, dismal winter drags on, it begins to make it’s presence felt.
Elliot’s art impressed us immediately with his confident, heavy pencils and his vivid characters but as you read further it’s quickly apparent a deft storyteller is at work here creating a subtle, uneasy atmosphere and an intriguing, accomplished piece of work.
You can read Parts 1 and 2 online right now at hundredmetregarden.com and we’ll have news about how the book’s coming along and a firm release date in the coming months.
