Funeral of the Heart

Funeral of the Heart is Leah Hayes’ debut graphic novel, which combines full page illustrations with lengthy text captions. The illustration and text is white on black, so has a dark, claustrophobic feel to it, a forboding that isn’t helped by the nature of the short stories they’re illustrating. Hayes’ characters veer towards the strange, obsessing over the bizarre minutiae of their lives, making this book a short, dark and fascinating glance into the lives of people on the edge of society.
