The 456-page Castle Waiting graphic novel tells the story of an isolated, abandoned castle, and the eccentric inhabitants who bring it back to life. A fable for modern times, Castle Waiting is a fairy tale that's not about rescuing the princess, saving the kingdom, or fighting the ultimate war between Good and Evil - but about being a hero in your own home.
For the first time, Fantagraphics' Castle Waiting collects the entire Harvey and Eisner Award-winning comic book series into one mammoth volume - and includes the concluding chapter written and drawn especially for this volume.
Linda Medley lavishly illustrates Castle Waiting in a classic visual style reminiscent of Arthur Rackham and William Heath Robinson. Blending elements from a variety of sources - fairy tales, folklore, nursery rhymes - Medley tells the story of the everyday lives of fantastic characters with humour, intelligence, and insight into human nature. Castle Waiting can be read on multiple levels and can be enjoyed by readers of all ages.
