A new release for Valentines day on the Sequential app
TRUE LOVE BY POSY SIMMONDS
SEQUENTIAL, the iPad app for digital graphic novels, is delighted to announce the release on Valentine’s Day of an exclusive expanded edition of True Love by Posy Simmonds, the acclaimed Guardian cartoonist and author of the Gemma Bovery and Tamara Drewe graphic novels.
Originally published in 1981, True Love has a strong claim to be the first British graphic novel published for adults. It’s a sharp satire on the idealised romantic love promised in romance comics, True Love tells the story of plain and single office worker Janice Brady who dreams of being swept off her feet … and is puzzled by sheep …
Over 30 years later, True Love is being celebrated via SEQUENTIAL’s acclaimed digital graphic novel platform for iPad, where the original pages are presented in glorious high-definition and supplemented with a host of extras including audio from Posy Simmonds, sketches and artwork, and materials from the original conception and creation process, including an in-depth look at the mysteries of Posy’s notebook.
“I’m so glad that True Love is going to have new digital life on SEQUENTIAL.” said Posy Simmonds who collected together materials for the enhanced extras, including the original cover artwork, sketches, and the notebook in which True Love was planned out.
Russell Willis, the founder of SEQUENTIAL, said, “I’m delighted to announce the release of True Love by Posy Simmonds, one of the world’s most important cartoonists. Posy is a British national treasure and it’s a real honour to publish this expanded digital version of a work I fell in love with over 30 years ago.”
The True Love expanded edition is 100 pages and priced at £9.99 / $12.99.
