Black Dog: The Dreams of Paul Nash is a new graphic novel published by Dark Horse and Les Humanoids in October and is a commission from the Imperial War Museum, the 14-18NOW Foundation and the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in the UK. It's one of 26 original artworks (and the only comics project) commissioned in every medium to commemorate the anniversary of the First World War. Paul Nash was a war artist and modernist who transformed his experience at Ypres into iconic landscape paintings, turning trees into bones and muddy battlefields into flesh. This book is part biography, part war memoir, and part exploration of the transformative nature of the trauma of war told as a series of dreams. The book was premiered in Jendal and Amiens with a live, hour-long performance work of original music, projects, and dramatic scenes; performed by Dave McKean (piano/voice), internationally renowned soloist Matthew Sharp (cello/voice), and Clare Haythornthwaite (violin/voice).
