With foreword by award winning graphic artist Bryan Talbot.

We launch our new e-book version of our best-selling graphic novel this week. With nearly 300 years of history, twenty eight writers and artists, and fourteen fantastical tales featuring unheralded characters and true events from the city’s fascinating history, Brighton: The Graphic Novel is a unique collaborative collection. 

Featuring pioneering drag queens, doomed pleasure gardens, smugglers, arsonists, obsessed inventors, aspiring actors, corrupt policemen, cantankerous barbers, sea swimmers, hands of death and mysterious sea forces, the stories – complete with historical footnotes – will ensure that you never look at Brighton in the same way again.

Inspired by Alice in Sunderland by Bryan Talbot- an adviser on the project - QueenSpark used the history of Brighton & Hove as the starting point for a fictional graphic novel. 

BRIGHTON: The Graphic Novel is not only a tribute to the unique history of the city but to the writers and artists who contributed their time and skills. And the professional mentors who paired them up to create the fourteen fantastical tales featured along with their accompanying historical notes. 

As Bryan Talbot, 2013 Costa Biography Award winner, says: "This is an original anthology of entertaining and intriguing tales, at times funny, chilling and poignant - a mixture of fact and fantasy, told in a wide and refreshing gamut of illustrative styles, but all firmly rooted in the history and culture of Brighton.”
