Surrey, October 2015. Tilda and Tom meet at their ‘uncle’s’ funeral and bond over a shared obsession with the films of Alfred Hitchcock. Tilda thinks she may know why her dad and Tom’s mum seem so shaken by ‘Uncle’ Rick’s funeral and why both were reluctant to return to their home town. She thinks the answer lies in a box of photographs, taken in the 1980s, which appear to depict characters involved in a local ghost story, 'The Legend of Ed & Jo-jo'. Hidden in the photos are clues that might implicate their parents in a 30-year-old double murder.

"A spooky graphic story that cleverly plays with comic panels and formats"
