Description

In June 2017, the Grenfell
fire killed 72 people in a 24-story tower block in West London. 24 PANELS is an
anthology comic to support the PTSD needs of the survivors. Curated by KIERON
GILLEN (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE), it features 24 stories, each no longer than 24
panels. Half drawn from professional creators who volunteered their time and
half drawn from open submissions, 24 PANELS is about community, hope, and (most
of all) raising as much money as possible.

Review quote

LIBRARY JOURNAL (STARRED) -- On the night of June 14,
2017, the Grenfell Tower apartments in West London went up in flames, killing 72
and injuring many more. Materials used in building renovation were substandard
for the height of the 24-story structure, and burning insulation emitted toxic
cyanide gases. The rapid spread of the fire trapped many of the victims,
destroying lives, families, and a community. This anthology of graphic works
parallels the paperback collection 24 Stories of Hope for the Survivors of
the Grenfell Tower Fire. These 24 comics in 24 panels or less capture the
essence of the suffering of the survivors, whose hopes and dreams were destroyed
in minutes. The contributing artists and writers, including Alan Moore, Kieron
Gillen, Alex de Campi, and many others, are helping to repair the psyches of
these individuals with this empathetic treatment of Grenfell and similar
horrors, with funds from sales supporting post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
therapy.
VERDICT A must for libraries
offering graphic novels to their teen and older patrons. Art reaches out to heal
damaged lives and provide needed treatment in this outstanding survey of
contemporary British comic and graphic arts.--Cliff Glaviano, formerly with
Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH
