"Pearson’s whimsical artwork—a cross between Lucky Luke and Miyazaki—creates a magical spell of a mysterious world of hidden creatures, and the production of the book make it a treasure in itself. The story—comparable to the Adventures of Polo series by Regis Faller and Copper by Kazu Kibuishi—never flags in imagination or wonder"—Publishers Weekly"If you haven't heard of Luke Pearson, buddy, you have been hiding under a particularly uninteresting rock this past year."—Dan Berry, The Comics Bureau"Pearson's latest comic, the spell-binding contemporary fairytale Hildafolk, feels just as at home in publisher Nobrow Press' visually intelligent catalogue as it does between good old fashioned yarns like Bone and The Adventures of Tintin in my bookcase."—Martin Steenton, Avoid the FutureIn Hilda and the Midnight Giant, our protagonist finds her world turned upside down as she faces the prospect of leaving her snow-capped birthplace for the hum of the megalopolis, where her mother (an architect) has been offered a prestigious job.

Will they help or hinder her? More importantly, who is this mysterious Midnight Giant?This is the first part of the Hildafolk series, a series that follows Hilda on her many adventures and travels through the magical fjords and enchanted mountains of her birthplace as she unravels the mysteries of the supernatural world that surrounds her.Luke Pearson is a comic book artist and illustrator, author of Hildafolk and Everything We Miss (published by Nobrow Press).
