The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed The Silver Darlings creeping into harbour late in 2012, available in a very select number of comic stores. Will Morris’ debut graphic novel charts a week aboard a herring fishing boat for a young man with big ideas and scant experience and has already gathered praise from many quarters, including Nottingham’s excellent Page 45.
The book launches officially on 15th February (more of that shortly), but those of you who can’t wait until then the book is available at our shop. What’s more, everyone that buys the book through our shop before the launch date, including all the eager fans who have already picked it up, will have the chance to win an original piece of artwork from Will (pictured above). Painted in watercolour on hot-pressed paper, it would be the perfect addition to any room, wheelhouse or cabin.The winner will be drawn at random on 22nd February.
