Take Only Photographs, Leave Only Footprints (2016)
The debut graphic novel by Frisson Comics’ Tom Smith and Katie Whittle. We successfully funded the comic in 2016 via Kickstarter and have received a lot of positive feedback since.
The story is based loosely on a true event that happened to the creators when they accidentally took a rock home from the beach thats as still covered in live barnacles. In real life the barnacles were returned safe and sound to the ocean but the story explore what nightmarish things could have happened if this wasn’t the case.
The book is full of melancholy and dark humour. It is a recommended read if you love the work of Ito Junji or David Cronenberg. You can grab a copy here.
