"Energetic artwork and heartfelt storytelling…I loved Reel Love." Jeff Lemire (Essex County Trilogy, The Underwater Welder)
In a quiet corner of rural England, the lights go down in a small cinema and one little boy is changed for ever. Fuelled by the flickering images of the silver screen, his imagination takes flight, and his life is transformed as friendships and adventures appear and unfold, shaping the person he will become…
Told in three acts, Reel Love is an exquisitely observed story about the magic of cinema, the heartache of loss and the pains of growing up.
Hardcover. 160 pages. Collects Reel Love Acts 1-3.
