Carrie Hartnoll is a girl lost in a life going nowhere fast. A chance encounter with an ex-boyfriend affords her the opportunity of a new career in Ivy League America, working as part of a research team attempting to resurrect the language of Babel. A language, it is theorised, that can be understood by any human, from anywhere in the world. As Carrie pieces together her fractured personal life, she becomes embroiled in the mystery surrounding the apparent suicide of the project's original team leader, which propels her to uncover the horrific truth about the language and why it was written out of the history books...

About the Author:

Hailing from the north east of England, Lee Robson has quickly gained ground in the UK's independent comic scene, with his work featuring in the Eagle Award nominated FutureQuake and its sister publication, Something Wicked. He's also a regular contributor to Accent UK's acclaimed series of themed anthologies (including Robots, Western Predators and Zombies 2). Babble is his first graphic novel.

A veteran of the UK and Irish independant publishing scene, Bryan Coyle has contributed covers and interior illustrations for a variety of publications including Mangaquake, Something Wicked and the Eagle-nominated FutureQuake. As well as featuring in the Accent UK graphic novels Predators, Robots and Western, he was the artist for Doctor Who webcomic spin-off The Forge and created Binmen of the Apocalypse for apocalyptic fanzine The End Is Nigh.

Review:

A fresh and interesting story which steps us out of the superhero genre and into something different, something that the independent comic book scene just seems to becoming better and better at offering a notion titles like this can only enforce on regular and new comic book readers - Gary Watson, Comics Anonymous

Babble on the other hand is one of those defining comics that make the original graphic novel worth buying and reading. --Dustin Cabeal, Comic Bastards

A smart, stylish, character-driven thriller about the ultimate communication breakdown, Robson and Coyle s Babble will leave you talking in tongues. - Jason Wilkins, Broken Frontier

Babble is a very rich story that has a slow build to a fantastic climax. - Tommy Lutz, Read Comic Books

I was extremely pleased with this graphic novel. It s thrilling and suspenseful, and definitely a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend it to people who enjoyed 28 Days Later (both film and comic), or who are fascinated with language and the ancient myths that surround them. I ll definitely be following the careers of both Robson and Coyle from here on out, and eagerly await their next big project. Start 2013 right and pick-up Babble in January! --Cameron Hatheway, Bleeding Cool

if language is a cornerstone of civilisation, are we not better for the diversity and richness of various tongues or is the fuel for knowledge and the need for instant blanket communication paramount? Robson and Cole have created a great comic here, with an ending that you ll have to read to appreciate. Pick it up. --Zainab Akhtar, Forbidden Planet International
