Dark Satanic Mills

By Marcus Sedgwick, Julian Sedgwick

Illustrated by John Higgins, Marc Olivent

A powerful new story and debut comic book from award-winning and multi-selling author Marcus Sedgwick collaborating with brother Julian Sedgwick and internationally renowned comics artist John Higgins.

Set in a near-future Britain, Dark Satanic Mills tracks a young girl's journey from the flooded landmarks of London to the vast, scorched and abandoned hills of the north. Framed for a murder she did not commit, the innocent and beautiful Christie has no other choice but to run for her life. Both a cautionary tale and a rip-roaring road trip, Dark Satanic Mills is altogether an intelligent, captivating and thrilling ride – The Wizard of Oz for a new generation, told in exhilarating shades of light and dark.
