The town Bobby lives in is a grey cluster of houses trapped against the sea by a half-ring of factories. Over the horizon, a war is raging. Any day now it may sweep over the town and crush it. And Bobby has fallen in love.

The Boy with Nails for Eyes is a dystopian fantasy graphic novel. The book, the first in a three-volume series, was long-listed for the Myriad First Graphic Novel Competition in 2018.


“Mixes the nightmarish world of Guillermo Del Toro with the elaborate world building of Neil Gaiman and the artwork of Shaun Tan or Dave McKean.”

“This comic is sublime.”
