The Pillbox Summary

The Pillbox by David Hughes

On holiday in Suffolk, a boy and his dog discover a World War II pillbox half buried on a deserted beach. When he returns the next day with his parents, the pillbox has disappeared. They learn a pillbox had been there and a boy had once been found in it, dead...

1945, another boy, another dog, the same pillbox ... and an American serviceman from the local base. Murder, treachery, a terrible secret...

David Hughes' second graphic novel is a haunting ghost story - dark, disturbing and - as always with Hughes - stunningly drawn.

The Pillbox Reviews

The Pillbox captures time, twists it, and reconstructs it, to create a truly haunting experience... Once you've encountered it, it'll stay with you forever. -- Sam Ashurst, 4 stars * SFX *
An odd and fascinating book. -- James Smart * Guardian *
Hughes' stunningly drawn book makes the past and present nestle in original and uncomfortable ways. -- Neel Mukherjee * Independent *
A salty, disturbing book. -- Rachel Cooke * Observer *
