On the surface, Mr Goodchild is a typical working class individual who leads a mundane, humdrum existence — just like everyone else. But under this banal calmness, a muffled, indistinct voice besets him. What truths lie behind the voice? Will Mr Goodchild ever be free?

Surreal yet magical, this evocative graphic novel examines the human experience and questions if we are truly who or what we think we are.
