Following his hit graphic novel Everyman - The Story of Patrick McGoohan - The Prisoner, artist/author Brian Gorman has announced Borderliners: True Realities, which will be published by Invisible Six on August 16th.
The story is a fast-paced adventure with science fiction and psychedelic undertones, that's influenced by Philip K Dick, The Prisoner TV series, and Bryan Talbot's Luther Arkwright. There are also one or two familiar faces on view, as many of the characters are based on real people. Two of Brian’s favourite actors, Roger Moore and Ian McKellen appear prominently, as the actors very generously gave permission for their likenesses to be used for leading characters.
Borderliners: True Realities is a 96-page graphic novel, with the story taking up 70 pages with the remainder being packed with information on the making of the artwork, and an interview with the author himself.
Of the release, Brian Gorman said, “It’s a pleasure to finally get a Borderliners graphic novel out. It’s a story I’ve been working on for nearly 20 years, and I’ve thrown everything but the kitchen sink into it. Fortune favours the brave, as they say!”
Invisible Six Managing Director, SM Worsey, added, “As soon as I saw Brian's artwork, I knew we had to work together on Borderliners. It was a pleasure to edit and a sign of great things to come. Brian's drawings have an incredible presence and the story incorporates a fascinating mix of action, science fiction and spiritual themes.”
