The House that Groaned
Introducing a fresh, utterly original voice in the graphic novel world
Exploring bodies and the spaces they inhabit, this tale is set in an old Victorian tenement housing six lonely individuals who could only have stepped out of the pages of a comic book. There is the retoucher who cannot touch, a grandmother who literally blends into the background, and a 20-something guy who's sexually attracted to diseased women. Yet, as we learn the stories behind these extreme characters, it becomes apparent that we may share simlar issues—as individuals and as a society.
Praise For The House that Groaned…
"Karrie Fransmen breaks all the rules of storytelling. . . . The only way this wonderful book could have been written is by illustration . . . not by word . . . rather like the hidden stories drawn on the walls of caves." —Nicolas Roeg, director, Don't Look Now and Walkabout
