Hannah Eaton’s Blackwood is a spooky murder mystery that spans generations

Blackwood cover

Two murders with 65 years between them but some striking similarities is the mystery around which Hannah Eaton’s new graphic novel Blackwood spins. Set in a small, rural, English town, 95-year-old Meg and her 11-year-old great-grandson Mason appear to hold the clues to solving the murder, but between her dementia and the fact that he’s only a child, no-one will listen to them.

As you can see from the preview images below, Hannah Eaton’s monochromatic illustrations hark back to a different era, but perfectly capture this eerie story, which its publisher describes as a cross between Middlemarch and The Wicker Man.

Blackwood was published on 1 October 2020.
