Overview

Having sold more than 300,000 copies in a series of five comic books, The Clockwork Girl is now a luscious graphic novel. It’s a tale unlike any other, a journey into a faraway land where the Clockwork Girl lives—a ticking robot girl with mechanical limbs and a voice of her own.

Against all odds, she finds companionship in Huxley, the amazing mutant circus boy who risks his life to be with her. Together they tackle questions like what man can feel that a machine or mutant can’t, what loneliness is, and what love is.

But can a robot girl feel true love? Will this futuristic Romeo and Juliet survive the threats of their warring families?

Editorial Reviews

The story is archetypal, but as rendered here, the transformation of the robot Clockwork Girl into a living, breathing creature has a poignancy and gentle charm all its own. This graphic novel is the basis of an animated 3D animated film, due to be released on October.

Bought this for my seven year old niece who loves it. Her (much) older Aunt was pretty impressed too. Very nice story and very well done.
