A silent movie plays and those existential clowns Laurel and Hardy are trading blows in their endless feud. In the real world, things aren’t always black and white. In the technicolour glory of summer’s day in a London park, another cycle of tit-for-tat revenge is about to begin…

Award-winning graphic novelist Oscar Zarate’s latest work links the lives of two single-parent families into a tense and dramatic chain of causation, levelling a delicate bird’s-eye view – and a distinctively modern take – on this oldest of human stories.

Part Greek tragedy, part slapstick comedy, and itself a wholly original work of art, The Park celebrates the redemptive, civilising powers of nature – and of love.

The Park is published by SelfMadeHero. Read more.
