“Quite simply… one of the most important and intelligent creative voices in current UK small press comics … These are comics you’ll feel you’ve lived.” – Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier

This collection covers Simon Moreton’s comics output from 2011 and 2012, including three out-of-print issues of his acclaimed ongoing autobiographical series
SMOO, and ten strips created for anthologies, including one previously unpublished piece. It also contains extensive notes on the work included, and a short essay by Moreton, offering a perfect entry point for new readers, and a different perspective for existing fans.

“Where comics meet poetry. Sometimes funny, sad or just plain truthful it’s a hugely satisfying read.” – Tony Esmond,
Beardrock

“There’s nothing overly expressive, but absolutely nothing hidden either: there’s a moving intimacy in
Days’ simplicity, an openness and frankness that astounds.” – Robert Wallis, A Place to Hang Your Cape

“Moreton is an interesting artist. He is a scholarly observer. He is a second-generation indie cartoonist. In many ways, he is a young British version of John Porcellino. Looking over his work, he does a nice job of evoking teenage angst in the suburbs and the overall longing of youth.” – Henry Chamberlain,
Comics Grinder

“The reductive nature of Moreton’s minimalism fills me with joy every time I see it. The few lines he drops onto the stark white pages may tell of isolation, often of despair, of escape, of memories of something lost, but there’s also a sense of hope, of moving up and up, to the sky, to the future, to satisfaction, contentment, beauty. Days captures an artist evolving, sets it before us so we can share it all. So recommended.”

•Comic and graphic novel shop

“Days [has] an elegance and economy of form artistically which suggests the simple yet often emotionally sophisticated messages [it wishes] to convey.”

The Comics Journal

•American comics magazine

“Moreton’s very much in the John Porcellino wing of comics-as-poetry school as he tells very short stories about his environment, his memories and his anxieties.”
