Local author Noel K Hannan will promote neo-noir cyberpunk graphic novel ‘Streetmeat 25th Anniversary Edition’ at the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge, 46 High Street in the centre of Nantwich on Friday 18th October 2019 (doors open 6:30pm, talk starts at 7pm).
‘Streetmeat’, set in future Seattle, was originally published in 1994 in collaboration with Rik Rawling. This 25th Anniversary Edition features the original 2-book series, the spin-off title Solo, together with all-new artwork created specifically for this special edition. As part of Noel's talk there will be a viewing of his short animated film ‘Joint Operations Entity’.
Noel K Hannan said: “It’s been 25 years now since Rik and I collaborated on Streetmeat, it remains the project we are best known for from that period, and we always felt it was unfinished business in some ways. It is the first of many republished and new work that we are planning under our new banner, RAWHEAD. As for fans who have read Streetmeat before, you’ll be getting a digitally enhanced edition with all the material from both books and SOLO, plus 20+ pages of brand new and stunning work from Rik.”
Denise Lawson from the Nantwich Bookshop & Coffee Lounge said: “We are really looking forward to hearing Noel talk about his book and the short video that will shown on the night too.”
Tickets are £7.50pp and include our delicious snacks and £2.50 discount upon book purchase on the night. There will also be a cash bar.
