Dark Horse To Release The Short Films of Dave McKean In Hardcover Book!

Best known for his work with Neil Gaiman and his Harvey Award-winning graphic novel Cages and Eisner Award-nominated graphic novel Black Dog: The Dreams of Paul Nash, Dave McKean also created inventive, surreal short films.

While I’ve only seen McKean’s excellent feature-length film, Mirrormask, I have to expect that Dave McKean: Short Films will be a darkly delightful collection of weirdness and empathy. The book should go down a treat, too.

Dave McKean: Short Films will be in stores on June 27, 2018.
