“Porcelain is a gorgeous and haunting steampunkesque fairy tale. Creepy, compelling and beautifully realised.” Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Avengers, Conan, Marvels)

“A haunting, umbral, and surprisingly charming story, told with confidence and great skill. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.” Antony Johnston (Wasteland, The Coldest City, Alex Rider graphic novels)

Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose’s Porcelain: A Gothic Fairy Tale is set for a July 2013 release courtesy of Diamond Comic Distributors, and is now available to pre-order, Diamond Code: MAY131178.

Porcelain is the first graphic novel from the creative team of Benjamin Read (writer) and Chris Wildgoose (illustrator), with André May (colours) and Jim Campbell (lettering), and is our first title from Improper Books.

As snow falls on a magical city, the urchin, Child, steals into the Porcelain Maker’s garden. Captured by his alchymical porcelain automata, she charms her way into his life and he becomes the father she never had. He has only one rule; she must never, ever, open the workshop door.
