“Embodying the very best of slice-of-life comics storytelling, Ellipsis is both a captivating snapshot of a life in transition and an evocative, yet understated, character piece.” – Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier

El•lip•sis (noun). From Ancient Greek (elleipsis) to leave out, fall short.
1. a mark or series of marks used to indicate an intentional omission, unfinished thought or a trailing off into silence. The ellipsis can also inspire a feeling of melancholy or longing.
2. a sudden leap from one topic to another.
3. a comic composed of six standalone but interconnected short stories by Tom Humberstone.

Issue One: Pregnant Pause. A young woman contemplates the transient and incongruous nature of airports as she begins a new chapter of her life.

“A wry yet heartfelt examination of the subtext whenever anyone says ‘the journey’s more important than the destination’.” – Kieron Gillen (
Phonogram, Journey into Mystery)

“His new six-issue series Ellipsis is billed as half a dozen interconnected but standalone short stories beginning with ‘… pregnant pause’, the tale of a teenage woman arriving at a metaphorical crossroads in her life that is echoed by the geographical one she finds herself in – the airport that serves as the setting for Ellipsis #1 … Embodying the very best of slice-of-life comics storytelling, Ellipsis is both a captivating snapshot of a life in transition and an evocative, yet understated, character piece.”

“Like Humberstone … I’m completely there with the ideas of airports being wonderful places, full of potential for wonder, full of every possible emotion, accentuated and accelerated … Humberstone captures it all so nicely."

“This is unsurprisingly a thing of brilliance and black-and-white beauty. Tom Humberstone’s expressions are a joy and Jamie McKelvie is right: ‘Every lushly inked panel is worth lingering over, the art carrying as much meaning as the narration’. The tones are particularly well placed, especially the aerial shot looking down on the plane, and its tempo matches the experience it describes to perfection.”
