“Deeply character-driven, Shattered With Curve of Horn is a mystery story that unwinds through an uncomfortable conversation that digs at the trio’s battered friendship before taking a turn for the more fantastical.” – Lauren Davis – io9.com
“Subtle, surreal, familiar, and strange, Shattered With Curve of Horn is one of the most artistic, intricate works I have ever been shown.” – Bedlam Reviews
“Having set out to catch our collective attention, Shattered With Curve of Horn has certainly succeeded. I, for one, am quietly but deeply enthralled.” – Robert Wallis – AP2HYC.com
“Perspective of a true artist – check. Draws a big picture and makes a great point – check. Enters a rarely explored territory of graphic novels – check. What territory, you say? Metaphysics.” – Luke Anthony – TheOuthousers.com
Welcome! Here it is, friends, my first graphic novel. Successfully funded on Kickstarter and ready to be in your hands. So, “what’s it all about?” you may be wondering. There’s far too much to detail here, and I don’t want to spoil any of it, so consider this a teaser to spark the fire:
Would you ever dream…in tandem with a partner?
Does your every creative idea…originate in the mind of another?
Is it possible you share a memory…with a stranger?
Will you remember the death of a friend…through the eyes of his lover?
On the eve of his major new exhibition of paintings, prosperous artist Matthew and his wife Caitlin, a pharmaceutical company administrator, encounter an old friend, a philosophical ex-con named Pierce. Pierce confronts the couple about the enigmatic, experimental drug that they took eight years ago, and the puzzling circumstances that led to his incarceration. In light of Pierce’s revelations Matthew must fight to keep his marriage and career secure, for the secret of all his success may have sprung directly from Pierce’s tragedy.
With subtle sci-fi overtones and a noir sensibility, Shattered With Curve of Horn is an intimate look at the threads of friendship and history, and how they can become re-woven by time, and altered by the powerful warp of creative ideas.
