Foyles Notes

Stephen Collins was the winner of the Jonathan Cape/Observer Graphic Short Story Prize in 2010. Now he presents his first full-length graphic novel, an off-beat fable worthy of Roald Dahl about life, death and the meaning of beards.

We love The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil and we think you will too, so here's a little taste.

Synopsis

See an extract from The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil here

The job of the skin is to keep things in. On the buttoned-down island of Here, all is well. By which we mean: orderly, neat, contained and, moreover, beardless. Or at least it is until one famous day, when Dave, bald but for a single hair, finds himself assailed by a terrifying, unstoppable .monster! Where did it come from? How should the islanders deal with it? And what, most importantly, are they going to do with Dave? The first book from a new leading light of UK comics, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil is an off-beat fable worthy of Roald Dahl. It is about life, death and the meaning of beards. (We mean a gigantic beard, basically).
