“Anyone familiar with Tim’s work will recognise the poetic yet documentary eye and the confident lines that have garnered comparisons with the likes of Daniel Clowes, Seth and Craig Thompson.” – Down the Tubes

• Winner of the 2015 British Comic Award for Best Comic

Grey Area collects together issues #1, #2 and #3 by critically acclaimed writer and artist Tim Bird.

Issue #1,
While The City Sleeps, is Tim’s first full length comic; a paean to London and the culmination of an obsession that started when he moved to Golders Green in 2005.

Titled
The Old Straight Track, issue #2 is a tribute to the Great British Motorway System – a narrative created by constantly moving across tarmac; biography on roads; a spiritual journey through the sacred service stations of the country; a meditation of traffic jams.

And in issue #3, Tim travels east out of London to the North Sea, through the outskirts of the City, suburban streets and marginal spaces, loosely following the route of the River Thames to the estuary and beyond.

“This is a beautiful work, lyricism and poetry overlap, ideas come forth … Potential achieved, [Tim] Bird getting better and better and better, his execution meeting his ambition here.” – Richard Bruton,
Forbidden Planet

“Tim has successfully captured the mood and environment of London through his melancholy use of words and images. It really is great.” – Antony Esmond,
Beard Rock
