A comic book, a fantastical nightmare, a story of redemption, a work of art: Mazeworld is the most stunning graphic novel you will read this year…
Even in a title known for stretching boundaries, Mazeworld remains one of the most stunningly inventive and breathtaking stories ever to have appeared in legendary British anthology comic 2000 AD.
Inspired by the story of a murderer comic books luminary Alan Grant met while in prison, faceless Adam Cadman is executed for the death of his brother. But a botched hanging transports him to the bizarre Mazeworld, a chimerical cloud-top citadel of convoluted mazes ruled over by treacherous warlords.
His hangman’s hood and noose now bonded to his skin, Cadman finds himself an unlikely messiah in this phantasmagorical world.
In possibly his greatest work, Arthur Ranson unleashes his imagination, mixing fantasy with dark horror, polemic with allegory, and the mundane with the fanciful. Maps are literally woven into the narrative, as he draws on mythology from around the world to create a truly unique artistic vision.
