About the Author
Ravi Thornton lives in Manchester. This is her first graphic novel. Andy Hixon lives in Manchester. He works with clay, photography, digital media and animation.
"Thornton's ominous and horrifying fable of human evil and obsession is told through her lyrical and spellbinding prose; the haunting text is accompanied by Hixon's hallucinogenic collages of the macrocephalic, neotenous villains and victims in their hypnotically dreamlike surroundings. Reminiscent of the work of Dave McKean, Hixon's artwork is unsettling and beautiful at the same time, a compelling gothic horror that elicits intense unease while it compels the reader to continue. . . this wrenching and cathartic tale spears directly into the heart with barbed hooks."-Publishers Weekly(Starred) "The Tale of Brin and Bent and Minno Marylebone by Ravi Thornton and Andy Hixon (Cape) - very unusual in terms of storytelling and visually fascinating, a combination of semi biographical with dark fairytale, the magical and wondrous with the perverse; new talents on the scene to watch for."--Joe Gordon, Forbidden Planet International
