Faction Presents High Water
Description: Eleven of New Zealand's best cartoonists take a speculative stab at the looming threat of climate change in this thoughtful, provoking and sometimes hilarious, comic collection. With tales ranging from washed-up celebrity polar bears, to giant post-apocalyptic crabs, High Water takes the reader on a thrilling romp through one of the most important issues of our time. Contributors include Dylan Horrocks (Hicksville, Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen), Sarah Laing (A Fall of Light, Let Me Be Frank), Chris Slane (Nice Day For A War), and many others. Full colour throughout, this anthology is a stunning testament to the breadth of New Zealand comic talent as well as a cautionary sally into humanity's future.
