GALAXY BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This is something really unusual, something special, that has to be seen to be appreciated. The art is gorgeous and unique. Think Astro Boy, Blade Runner 2049, Ghost in the Shell meets Edward Hopper. - Craig Slater - Manager, Galaxy Bookshop
Stranger Things meets On the Road in this hypnotic, lavishly illustrated novel.
Set in a post-apocalyptic 1997, The Electric State is the story of Michelle, accompanied by her toy robot Skip, setting out across the western United States in a stolen car to find her missing brother. Told in achingly melancholy, spare prose and featuring almost 100 gorgeous, full-colour illustrations, this is a novel like no other.
Rights in The Electric State have already sold in 13 territories and Deadline reports that the film rights were snapped up by the Russo Brothers' production company (Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War) with Andy Muschietti (Mama, It) attached to direct.
