The Encyclopedia of Early Earth


Winner of the Best Book Award at the 2014 British Comic Awards
Readers! This book is not a real encyclopedia!

It is an epic work of fiction, detailing the many tales and adventures of one lonely storyteller, on a quest for Enlightenment and True Love. This book contains many stories, big and small, about and pertaining to the following things: Gods, monsters, mad kings, wise old crones, shamans, medicine men, brothers and sisters, strife, mystery, bad science, worse geography, and did we already mention true love?

Critics are saying it is probably the best thing since sliced bread. Maybe even since bread knives.


  • There’s much myth and magic in the pages of this colossal work of illustrated fiction.
