Dark Horse Comics recently announced Rain, a new upcoming graphic novel from acclaimed writer/historian Mary M Talbot and artist (and husband) Bryan Talbot, set for this Fall.
Rain is the story of the growing relationship between two young women, one an environmental activist, set against the backdrop of the disastrous 2015 floods in northern England. Their local wild Brontë moorlands are being criminally mismanaged, crops are being poisoned, and birds and animals are being slaughtered. While the characters are fictional, the tragedy is shockingly real.
Rain is the fourth graphic novel collaboration between Mary M Talbot and husband Bryan Talbot, a partnership that has produced the award-winning Dotter of Her Father’s Eyes, Sally Heathcote: Suffragette (with Kate Charlesworth), and The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia.
The Rain graphic novel will go on the retail shelves of comic and book stores everywhere, on October 11, 2019, in hardcover, landscape-format, and will retail for $24.99.
