“A sweet, sad fable, beautifully rendered by the Glasgow-based duo of John Chalmers and Sandra Marrs... the story they tell, a gentle fantasy, has an easy tone and a deceptive depth that will appeal to both adults and children.” – The Sunday Herald

The highly acclaimed metaphrog return with a brand new stand-alone graphic novel: the moving tale of Louis’ quest for a cure to save his friend FC. A simple story of friendship, heart-warming and genuinely transporting.

This SEQUENTIAL edition is supplemented with a Director’s Commentary, featuring a ‘making of’ section and production sketches and photos.


These days we’re bombarded with animations or graphic novels that claim to amuse kids while offering a metanarrative to please adults. But few actually fulfil these promises as effectively as this Scottish duo’s hand-painted book.” – Art Review

“A wonderful all ages fantasy ... It’s a sweet tale but one with darker undercurrents for the adult reader – a child can enjoy the lovely, colourful graphics and the tale of one friend trying to save another through a magical quest and indeed so can an adult, but to the adult there are subtle little markers of the darker, hidden aspects of Louis’ world. I think perhaps Sandra and John have crafted their best Louis book yet, an utterly gorgeous, colourful, touching fantasy for all ages, with fabulous artwork and colouring and an engaging emotional hook.” – Joe Gordon

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“Metaphrog's deep story will have readers contemplating its images and events long after they've reached the final page.”

The Comics Journal

•American comics magazine

“That Louis’s concerns are universal and his adventures a reflection of modern world make his tales like contemporary fables. Metaphrog manage to bridge the gap between innocence and experience with real insight, making Night Salad something that can stand alongside Kafka’s short stories — deceptively simple tales that manage to pierce directly to the heart of the human condition.” – Gavin Lees
