A graphic novel account of David Bowie's formative years

Haddon Hall

Nejib

Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke: David Bowie had an extraordinary talent for reinvention. But at the beginning of his career, he made the most significant transformation of his life: from “David” to Bowie. In 1969, shortly after the release of his first hit single, David and his girlfriend Angie moved into Haddon Hall, a sprawling Victorian villa in the London suburbs. Part commune, part creative hub, the house became home to a community of musicians, hippies and hangers-on. As egos clashed and parties got out of hand, David kept writing: “Changes,” “Kooks,” “Life on Mars” - songs that would propel him to global fame. Charting Bowie’s personal life, the development of his music and the transformation of his image, Haddon Hall is an evocative portrait of a young artist presiding over a musical revolution.

A gripping follow-up to the British Comic Award-winning The Motherless Oven

The Can Opener's Daughter

Rob Davis

In the British Comic Award-winning The Motherless Oven, Scarper Lee asked: “Who the hell is Vera Pike?” Now we get a chance to find out. Vera lives in the cruel world of Grave Acre. Her mother is the Weather Clock, the megalomaniacal Prime Minister of Chance. Her father is a can opener. Charting Vera’s childhood, the second part of Rob Davis’ trilogy takes us from her home in Parliament to suicide school, and from the Bear Park to the black woods that lie beyond. In the present day, Vera and Castro Smith are determined to see their friend Scarper again – but is he even still alive? Can anyone outlive their deathday? A darkly inventive sequel, The Can Opener’s Daughter answers many of the questions posed in The Motherless Oven, while asking plenty more of its own.
