It looks as if ‘The Casebook of Bryant & May 1; The Soho Devil’ is not going to be appearing anytime in the immediate future. The finished fifty-page full-colour graphic novel I’ve been working on with cult artist Keith Page has been unable to find a publisher either in the UK or the US.
The problem is that regular publishing houses aren’t equipped to handle graphic novels, and graphic novel houses are looking for superhero action adventures. The book, which continues the adventures of Bryant & May into a new and slightly more fantastical area, is being seen as too much of a risk in the present times.
Keith and I are determined that it will be seen somehow, though, and are working to find a solution to the problem.
