“A bizarre journey through the convoluted psyche of a medical examiner, Van Gough’s adopted an unsettlingly quiet voice for his protagonist, verging on the poetic as he slices open a bare-foot bridge jumper (“You have to take your shoes off before you enter the house of God”.) This runs in highly effective contrast to the variety of styles utilized to emphasize the shifts from present day through to childhood flashback to more recent memories. Ignore it at your loss”

ABOUT THE BOOK
Post Mortimer is the hypnagogic, often disturbing account of a pathological pathologist, battling personal demons through a myriad of latent dark memories from the past, and a series of nightmarish visions. It is a vignette of mortal dread, played against a backdrop of surreal horror and suburban malaise.
Written and illustrated in 1995 when the author was just 28 years old, David Van Gough introduces the full, completed graphic novel for the very first time, Post Mortimer represents a unique insight into his formative archive and showcases the creative direction that would inform his work as an artist.
“A powerful, provocative read, not for the queasy”
“Post Mortimer is an excellent and exquisite corpse…”
