Not Because of the People - Print Edition
Dispatches from a small business in
Four comics about empty places and the people that live there + extras. These are haunted stories for haunted times, stories full of ideas and images that seem abstract until they step out beside you at the bus stop and ask if you've got the time.
"Not Because of the People is one of those occasional comics that remind even those of us who consider ourselves reasonably well versed with the potential of the form that we have barely begun to fully appreciate all the things that comics can be. A recommended acquisition for readers who like something a little more challenging to their comics consumption." - Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier
“Classic British indie small press pamphlet, and a sharp burst of mood and ideas. It’s very much comics as poem – it’s the sort of work that Douglas Noble has been known to do” – Kieron Gillen, writer of The Uncanny X-Men and The Wicked + The Divine
“A spooky zine… Liked this a lot. The writing is really strong and the art suggests just enough to make you uneasy – Sarah Horrocks, artist and creator of Aorta and Goro

A great dark read. Images suggest another strange but also familiar world. Well bound, and well presented. Delivery was very quick. 👍
Wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered, but its an intriguing premise/interpretation around a maze and another chapter (not sure if that's the right term) inspired by poetry. Enjoyed and intrigued by it.
Excellent quality and arrived very swiftly after being ordered
Inventive, impressive, and surreal. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next edition.
