Gasoline: A Graphic Novel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the height of a society governed by corporate greed and corruption, a fiery apocalypse rains down. Among the few survivors are the Armbusters, a family of orphaned witches. Establishing a utopian commune, they uphold their position of power through the maintenance of their car, the only remaining working automobile. The Armbusters' search for precious gasoline pits them against the conniving nihilists who lurk in the decaying urban sprawl, and they learn to adopt new, alternative means of survival to which they had been blind while caught up in a life of materialism.

Written and illustrated by the cult artist Dame Darcy, Gasoline is a rollicking, eco-conscious, gothic fairy tale of danger and suspense, heartbreak and redemption, and above all the perseverance of magic and love.

  • A stunning graphic novel, with over 100 drawings by the cult illustrator and musician Dame Darcy
  • An entrancing gothic story with a timely ecological message
  • Features an illustrated how-to section on alternative and creative living, with Dame Darcy's tips on everything from candle-making and sewing to banjo-playing and casting simple spells

Synopsis:

A rollicking, eco-conscious, gothic fairy tale with over 100 drawings by cult illustrator Dame Darcy.
