The Cage

ebook

First published in 1975, The Cage was a graphic novel before there was a name for the medium. Cryptic and disturbing, it spurns narrative for atmosphere, guiding us through a labyrinthine series of crumbling facades, disarrayed rooms and desolate landscapes, as time stutters backward and forward. Within the cage's barbed-wire confines, we observe humanity only through its traces: a filmic sequence of discarded objects — headphones, inky stains, dishevelled bedsheets — scored by a deafening cacophony of breaths, cries and unsettling silence.

This new edition, which includes an introduction by comics master Seth, brings Martin Vaughn-James's nightmarish vision to a new generation of readers.

'I dont use the word "masterpiece" lightly. I think The Cage is a masterpiece of comic art. — Seth

'Vaughn-James remains a significant figure in comics history because his work was singular, literate, experimental, and often unsurpassably good.' — The Walrus
