  • Ring of Roses is set in London in the 21st century, but it's a London we wouldn't recognize. The Church rules England with an iron hand but has begun to lose its grip. Times are tense. Then six high-powered priests are brutally murdered on the Thames. Samuel Waterhouse, the flamboyant barrister hired to investigate, soon realizes he is out of his depth. So he hires a hardened criminal, William Barnett, to assist him. Barnett rams through a delicate web of conspiracy like an express train through a scout troop's tent. Meanwhile, the bubonic plague breaks out and thousands are dying. Throughout all this chaos, Waterhouse and Barnett are treading on the toes of the immensely powerful figures behind the scenes.

Review:

"Fresh and invigorating... Arresting and vivid!" - Dave Gibbons (Watchmen, Kingsmen)

"Must Read" - IGN

"A thoughtful and ambitious graphic novel!" - Comics Bulletin

“a phenomenal story...a fantastic book that’s just as relevant now as it was nearly twenty five years ago" - Graphic Policy 

“Captured beautifully and it moves perfectly along” - Flickering Myth

“...the whole thing is wonderfully dense and tightly written, well plotted, great dialogue. And then there’s Watkiss’ artwork, absolutely superb throughout, a real delight to turn each page, really masterful control of both individual imagery and sequential art...Ring Of Roses is a book that cleverly thrills...highly recommended” - FP International
