Product Details


“An evocative ‘arctic noir,’ this graphic novel unfurls a study in desolation, mounting tensions, and chilling atmosphere.” — Publishers Weekly

“An affecting, lonely, and ruthless novel of cold capitalism, the sicknesses of patriotism, and one man with the grip of history on the shoulder trying to thread an entire country through the needle of a moral compass.” — Warren Ellis, author of Gun MachineNormal, and Transmetropolitan

“Pomery’s starkly drawn, sharply written mystery artfully brings to life the tale of a lone outsider facing the cold climate and even colder atmosphere of a distant Arctic community scarred by the grubby tide mark of the British Empire.” — Hannah Berry, UK Comics Laureate and author of Britten and BrülightlyAdamtine, and Livestock

“Based on a premise that is totally believable.” —Fanboy Factor


“A major talent.” — Forbidden Planet

“Quietly understated from one standpoint and yet at the same time profoundly expressive in delivery… stunning.” — Broken Frontier

“Visually innovative, exciting, and absolutely bloody brilliant to behold. Above all, it highlights the power of graphic novels to deliver thought-provoking observations on society where other mediums would fail.” — Slings & Arrows Graphic Novel Guide

“Pomery’s drawings are crisp and precise, making great use of both negative space and geometric patterns… but there’s also a loose sketchiness to them, as though Pomery was creating that blueprint of what it’s like to be human on the page.” — Rob Clough, High-Low
