Crime Scene: Britten & Brülightly

Freeze! To celebrate the release of The Mammoth Book of Best Crime Comics, we’re celebrating the best crime comics ever, be they new fish or old hoods, in our blockbusting Crime Scene promotion.

Britten & Brülightly is a brand new original graphic novel telling the tale of Fernandez Britten, private investigator and depressive scizophrenic, as he attempts to investigate a twisting, turning murder case on the mean streets of London. Hannah Berry's unique illustration and storytelling make their debut in this, her first graphic novel. With lush colour washes and well-honed cartooning on display, Britten & Brülightly reads like a noir Posy Simmonds comic, and is a deeply atmospheric and rewarding read.
