PSYCHIC HOTLINE by Leonie Brialey
160 pages, Perfect Bound, 12.5cm x 17cm, 1 colour risgraph insides, 3 colour risograph cover.
It's about a ghost calling a psychic hotline.
"Spare and laden with meaning, vibrating with negative space and palpable emptiness, Leonie exploits the poetic exchange between text and image. Like the art of comics itself, for me Psychic Hotline is about the (im)possibilities of communication, and how hard we all strive to listen and be heard, speaking across the corporeal divide – the spaces and absences that separate us. I love Leonie's ghost, an emptiness that feels everything."
- Penni Russon
"Leonie's comic is a warm and gentle hug from a friend you've just met but feel like you've known forever. The story and characters have a depth and magnitude made possible by Leonie's skills at writing dialogue that is natural and line work that flows across the pages."
