Product Details


“In this lively and vibrant graphic novel, several stories are intertwined: the discovery of African-American culture, an account of the USA of Bush Jr, Obama and Trump, and also, as a guiding thread, a glimpse of Scott-Heron’s work thanks to a series of close-ups of his key songs. Against all odds, thanks to these interlinked narratives, this story of a missed meeting, altogether artistic, social and political, is breath-taking.” Vincent Brunner, Les Inrocks

“Gil Scott-Heron is one of the all time greats and his story deserves to be heard/read by everyone” Scroobius Pip

“A soulful and heartfelt representation of a man’s life, love, and music. An original and creative work of art about one of the most original and creative artists of our time.” Comic Crusaders

“Something I am totally in love with is ‘In Search of Gil Scott Heron’ … I think it’s fantastic!” Craig Charles, BBC Radio 6

“…anyone who loves Heron’s work as much as Mauceri is likely to appreciate his quest and his insight.” Slings and Arrows

“In Search of Gil Scott-Heron is a powerful, personal take on the life of a man, musician and trailblazer through the eyes of a young filmmaker who’s search for his idol goes unrewarded.”

“Realised through detailed panels and intimate story-telling, In Search of Gil Scott-Heron traces the legacy of Heron’s work, the challenges of his personal life and the unshakeable connection between Maucéri and Heron’s art.” The Vinyl Factory

“It takes you through history, and through [Gil Scott Heron’s] life, and it shows how important his message was…I highly recommend it.” Graphic Policy

“This is a fascinating read.” Comics Beat

“In Search of Gil-Scott Heron is a splendid package, a solid, hardback volume that has the look and feel of an old fashioned annual and which works as the story of a young man’s political awakening, a tribute to Gil Scott-Heron and an introduction to his work for those unfamiliar with it.” JildySauce
