Porcelain is a gorgeous and haunting steampunkesque fairytale. Creepy, compelling and beautifully realised.” – Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Avengers, Conan, Marvels)

Child’s journey over the wall changes her life forever when she meets the Porcelain Maker.

Set within a world that's a magical echo of our own,
Porcelain is the story of Child, an urchin, who leaves behind the cold streets of a snowy city when she climbs the high wall into the Porcelain Maker’s garden.

Porcelain is a gorgeous, gothic fever dream, beautiful and terrifying and funny and sad all at once. It is also that precious rarity, a perfect comic.” – Lev Grossman (The Magicians, The Magician King)

“A haunting, umbral, and surprisingly charming story, told with confidence and great skill. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.” – Antony Johnston (
Wasteland, The Coldest City, Umbral, The Fuse)

“I loved the feel of it, like an old-school faerie tale. Tight and well-written. A little mystery, a little humor, a little horror. It made me smile in places and get a little weepy in others. Everything I want in a story.” – Patrick Rothfuss (
Name of the Wind, Wise Man’s Fear, The Slow Regard of Silent Things)

“Incredibly polished and a very well-put together package for a first book from a small publisher … Chris Wildgooses's art is beautifully fine-lined and evocative, mirroring the delicate balance being played out in the story itself.” – Zainab Akhtar

Forbidden Planet

•Comics retailer

“it’s utterly beautiful, a delightful concoction that partakes of Victorian novels, elements of the industrial revolution’s real history, the fantastical fairy tale (and even elements of Bluebeard and perhaps Little Orphan Annie) and a very elegant form of Steampunk, all woven through a tale which is by turns mysterious, charming, touching and frightening.” – Joe Gordon

Mary Talbot

•Writer of Dotter of Her Father's Eyes

“Art nouveau and steampunk with more than a hint of Bluebeard, Porcelain is a delightfully dark tale, stunningly told.”
