Ben Haggarty’s debut graphic novel series, Mezolith, is an extraordinary exploration of the archaeology of the imagination. This cycle of stone-age stories of magic, horror, enchantment, & families, is written in words and pictures by Ben, with beautiful illustrations by Adam Brockbank (concept artist for X-men, Troy & the Harry Potter film series). Set 10,000 years ago, before Britain was an island, it plays with the stories our ancestors might have shared. It was a Times’ Graphic Novel of the Year 2010, and was published by Random House. Mezolith 1 is currently published by ARCHAIA/BOOM! and can be bought HERE and the all new MeZolith Book 2 will be available from October 2016 and can be ordered HERE.

The Financial Times
‘… an amazing example of world-building at its very finest, with an exhilarating story to boot.’
