Her ex-lovers are all dead... in THE THREE ROOMS IN VALERIE'S HEAD!

September 29, 2017

Falling in love is easy. But it's not the fall that kills you.

In January 2018, Top Shelf welcomes two remarkable British talents — ultra-short fiction writer David Gaffney and comic artist Dan Berry — in their first collaboration. The Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head is a dark comedy about relationships, memory, loneliness and obsession.

Valerie has a rich interior life. Serially unlucky in love, to feel better she imagines that her previous boyfriends are dead and that their bodies are kept downstairs in the cellar in a strange, mummified state. Every day she brings them upstairs and speaks with them about what went wrong.

What follows is a series of peculiar, funny, and sometimes disturbing short tales about inept lovers, weird obsessions, and socially malfunctioning men who repeatedly fail to build a relationship with poor Valerie.

Apart from Stanley. Stanley was special.
Could he be the one to save her?

The Three Rooms in Valerie’s Head is a full-color softcover graphic novel with French flaps, 9.5" x 6.5" (landscape), 120 pages. Check out a six-page preview and pre-order now from your favorite retailer!
