Adamtine by Hannah Berry
Hannah Berry, the comics laureate, is no stranger to horror. In her second graphic novel, Adamtine, all people could do was speculate on the fate of those who vanished – strangers; seemingly random, unconnected: all plucked from their lives and never seen again. The notes left behind, apparently describing some slender reason for their removal, were all that linked them. They were all delivered by one man. Some years later, four strangers; seemingly random, unconnected, all take the last train home. But something each of them has forgotten – or is trying to forget – is catching up with them; with a terrible, inexorable purpose. The Devil is in the detail, as they say. A compulsive whodunit – can you work it out before the end?
