Nocturne - Best of 2015

Nocturne - Cover Art
Renowned UK comics journalist Paul Gravett has chosen Gestalt Comics’ Walled City Book 2: Nocturne as one of his TOP TEN graphic novels for 2015!

Set in early 20th-century Hong Kong and Kowloon, and clocking in at over 450 large, ravishingly illuminated pages, this is something extraordinary. Opotowsky’s sparky conversations and occasional observational captions compliment Hoffmeister’s hovering brush-lines and strategic highlights of watercolour washes. As one character observes, “Hong Kong is intimate”, and Nocturne brings you up close to the city’s places and peoples, observing them with detail and sensuality and awakening all your senses.
