Neil Gaiman is nothing if not a prolific science-fiction writer. One of his works is Troll Bridge which Dark Horse is adapting with the help of artist Colleen Doran. Based on a story originally published in Gaiman’s Smoke and Mirrors: Short Fictions and Illusions, Troll Bridge is a tragic coming-of-age fantasy masterpiece. The artwork of the inimitable Doran makes this book a gorgeous new addition to your Gaiman library.
“She showed me an unusual style that isn’t like classic comics. Her pencils are wonderful, layered full-color drawings. They’re subversive, more like children’s book illustrations from 50 years ago,” said Neil Gaiman in an exclusive interview with Publishers Weekly.
Troll Bridge tells the story of Jack, a young boy whose world was full of ghosts and ghouls, one of which—a ravenous and hideous troll—would haunt him long into manhood. As the beast sups upon a lifetime of Jack’s fear and regret, Jack must find the courage within himself to face the fiend once and for all.
Troll Bridge is in stores September 14, 2016. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop. Full press release below.
