About The Book of Niall

A gripping and thought-provoking story of reality, illusion, and mental health, written and illustrated by a master of illusion himself, The Book of Niall is a full-colour graphic novel that immerses the reader in a journey of self-discovery and understanding. 

Actor Niall Adams seems to have it all - a successful Hollywood career, a luxurious LA apartment, and a loving partner. But beneath the surface, Niall's grip on reality is slipping away. He is convinced that everyone around him is an actor, reciting lines from a pre-written script, and that at any moment the director will call cut. As Niall is swept along on a hyper-real journey through the bizarre world of fame and celebrity, his perception of reality is tested to its limits, leading him to question the very nature of existence itself.
