The Eye Collector #1
“A bizarre, surreal trip into a child’s mind.” —Silvia Moreno-Garcia, New York Times bestselling author of Mexican Gothic
“The Eye Collector is the exquisite and elemental territory somewhere below surface and somewhere above depth. It is insufficient to merely explain these pages, or even say you’ve read them. The correct reaction, I think, is to drool.” —Tony Burgess, writer of Pontypool
The Eye Collector tells a horror story centred on a young protagonist, Nathan, who struggles to shield those he loves from a mythic amalgam of the Sandman and Man in the Moon. Equal parts god and parasite, the Eye Collector grants mortals what they most desire, in their secret hearts, in exchange for their eyes, which fuel his dark magic.
The comic’s artwork reflects this dark, chaotic, surreal war for control of perspectives on reality. At turns touching and terrifying, with shades of Dave McKean and David Lynch, The Eye Collector will invade your nightmares and dissect your dreams.
