The Great Unwashed
Where dreams blow away with the chip-paper on the wind…
In the lowering gloom of a seedy British resort a poignant, scowling cast of lost souls long for a place to call home—and it looks like it’s about to rain.
ABOUT THE BOOK
The Great Unwashed is a graphic novel anthology of graphic short stories all inter-linked by its setting in the out-of-season seaside resort of Brighton. Like Brighton, the stories are surrounded by the rolling vastness of the sea.
It is an otherworld Brighton, where it is either raining or about to rain.
All the characters are somehow caught up in their own undoing. Doomed before they start, and the Pleece Brothers are laughing up their sleeves the whole time, as they make everything go horribly wrong.
The Pleece Brothers created these stories when they were young lads fresh out of Art College, fierce with the brio to make comics —counterbalanced by the ennui and sarcasm of the times—and in doing all this they make us laugh.
For twenty somethings they had a instinctive skill for telling stories with style.
What they have created is timeless fun dipped in pathos.
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Warren and Gary Pleece are brothers who live in Brighton, England. Not only in the place, but in their heads as well.
A life-long joy in creating comics, where Gary writes most of the stories, and Warren draws the pictures has continued to this day.
