Overview

In his grandmother’s failing seaside arcade, a young boy encounters a mysterious Punch and Judy Man with a dark past, and a woman who makes her living playing a mermaid.
 
As their lives intertwine and their stories unfold, the boy is forced to confront family secrets, strange puppets and a nightmarish world of violence and betrayal in a dark fable of childhood innocence and adult pain.
 
Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s elegiac masterpiece is presented here in a newly remastered hardcover edition featuring a special 16-page section of never-before-reprinted preliminary and promotional artwork.
