Rivers [TSP]—COOL

David Gaffney (w) • Dan Berry (a & c)

Three ordinary weirdos, one recurring dream. The acclaimed minds behind The Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head return with a whimsical and ambitious portrait of human connection in the age of digital fragmentation.

 

You meet the strangest people on the internet.

 

Gideon is a lonely I.T. developer, obsessed by a comic book from childhood called Revenge of the Ghoulors, and secretly in love with his co-worker Lisa. Heidi works at home in her pyjamas, makes a lot of soup, and wishes she had time for friends. Peter is a 56-year-old divorcee who delivers classic cars, has a built-in toaster, and thinks a lot about the past.

 

These three people seem unconnected, yet they share something—they each have the same recurring dream. And when a new web service is introduced that helps people share their dreams, what will happen when the three of them find out about each other? Just what is it that links these three lonely souls?

 

Nimbly weaving together multiple storylines (including extracts from Gideon’s comic book, Revenge of the Ghoulors), Dan Berry and David Gaffney present Rivers: a quirky examination of how events from the past can bind people together forever, and a surprising reunion between people who’ve never met.

 

Praise for the David Gaffney and Dan Berry:

 

“Ingenious.” — Library Journal

 

“One hundred and fifty words by Gaffney are more worthwhile than novels by a good many others.” — The Guardian

 

“Dan Berry’s delicate drawings perfectly outline a world that is funny and also a little sad.” — Eleanor Davis, author of How to Be Happy

 

“Delightful… a beautifully coloured heartfelt comic.” — Comics Beat

 

“Witty, clever and poignant.” — Time Out

 

“Exquisitely structured for maximum satisfaction and laugh-out-loud comedy… Dan Berry’s cartooning is delicious.” —Page 45
