'No'. She closes the door he slowly walks away There is nothing that she wants and nothing he can bring love in all its glory thrives on lesser things love in all its glory survives on lesser things

about

KLAXON is a very British comic horror graphic novel by Si Spencer and Dix, published by Self Made Hero.

'An urban nightmare of finely balanced dialogue and artwork as if Raymond Briggs teamed up with Daniel Clowes and they dropped the bad brown acid. Which is my idea of an evening well spent' Alan Martin, creator of Tank Girl

'Deeply disturbing... very funny' Steve Oram ,Sightseers

The ebook edition came with an exclusive soundtrack re-telling the surreal, disjointed story in glorious songs.

Puppet theatre composer Paul Mosley is joined by members of his award winning Red Meat Orchestra along with 'Oh Sister' singer Sarah Berresford to create 7 strange and beautiful vignettes that now have a life outside of the ebook. Combining chamber cello and flute, with bluesy backline, fuzz guitars and sic-fi synths 'Klaxon' is a strange and strangely likeable musical oddity.
