A brand new supernatural graphic novel that is absolutely loaded with haunting visuals set in a misty isolated town off the coast of County Antrim. It’s 1711, a woman with demons of her own – has begun a quest to root the evil out of her village. The stakes are real. The Devil is real. This is a spine-tingling feminist folktale of fear and faith set in Northern Ireland. Based on the successful history of Islandmagee witches by A. Sneddon, Possessed By the Devil: The Islandmagee Witches And Ireland’s Only Mass Witchcraft Trial (Dublin 2013). Launch: Forbidden Planet, Belfast, 25th Feb 2023.

Victoria McCollum and Andrew Sneddon explore how dark and difficult heritage can be creatively retold with an ethical impulse through the curation of this dark supernatural graphic novel, illustrated by David Campbell. 


Animated and Edited by David McIntyre
