Using the rich history of Scotney Castle as a starting point, Jamie Rhodes has created five short stories that take place over different eras in this 14th century castle's past: "The Labourer" (Medieval), "The Priest" (Elizabethan), "The Smuggler" (Georgian), "The Widow" (Victorian), and "The Hunter" (Edwardian). Each of these stories has been illustrated by award winning comic and graphic novel artists Isaac Lenkiewicz, Briony May Smith, William Exley, Becky Palmer, and Isabel Greenberg, creating a visually striking graphic collection that is steeped in historical context.

I enjoy reading about history, but historical comics continue to fall flat in my opinion. By having the real history follow the fictional story, it invalidated the story, which was the entire reason to read the book. Read Full Review
