In London, the moment two commuters, Aaron and Lilly, lay eyes on each another on a packed Monday morning tube train, everyone else around them vanishes.

In Los Angeles, Ray is sitting in gridlock on the 405 Freeway when he receives a call from an LAPD officer with news about his wife. Ray fears the worst. But just as the officer is about to give Ray the news, he is cut off. The caller has disappeared, and so has everyone else around him. Everyone except for a badly beaten man tied up in the trunk of another car.

In Japan, comic artist Yoshi has come to the demon-haunted Aokigahara Forest to die, but the spirits of the forest have other ideas.

Taking us through the deserted streets of London, the empty freeways of Los Angeles, and the dream world of the Aokigahara Forest, Celeste is a compelling and profound graphic novel about the choices we make and the courage it takes to make them.

Forbidden Planet

“This may well be Culbard’s first graphic novel where his name stands alone on the cover, but it certainly shouldn’t be his last. It absolutely wont be for everyone, and some will no doubt react strongly against a perceived absence of any real resolution. But for those of you who relish this sort of thing, for those of you who enjoy the challenge of leaving a work with more questions than answers, Celeste will enthral, fascinate and unsettle.” – Richard Burton

Sci-Fi Now

•Science fiction site

Beautiful to look at and heavy with symbolism, Celeste demands a re-reading – or perhaps a full orchestral score.

"The most refreshingly different book of the year.” – John Geddes
