The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a tale of beasts and beauty, man, magic and ...horror told through words and graphic novel images. It’s Stone Age horror from the DFC Library.
Visually powerful and with a text that is equally compelling and ferocious, this is an amazing stone-age horror story told as a gripping graphic novel. Set in a dark past where violence from man and nature alike rules, Poika, a young boy just growing into a man, must learn to take his part. Full of mystery, magic and threat interspersed by rare moments of compassion, this is a gripping read. Mezolith originally appeared in the hugely respected DFC, which sadly through no fault of its own has sadly ceased. Other titles that have previously featured in the DFC include, The Spider Moon and Good Dog, Bad Dog.

Mezolith: Part of the DFC library by Ben Haggarty
The world of MeZolith awaits. 10,000 years ago, the Kansa tribe live on the western shores of the North Sea Basin, where danger is never far away. Each season brings new adventure, each hunt has its risks, and each grim encounter with the neighbouring tribe is fraught with threats. Poika, a boy on the verge of manhood, must play his part and trust the strength and wisdom of his elders. This is a tale of beasts and beauty, man, magic and ...horror. Stone Age horror from the DFC Library.
Ben Haggarty, the author of MeZolith says:
MeZolith is the result of a unique collaboration between an illustrator, Adam Brockbank, and myself, a performance storyteller. We had long wanted to work together and the DFC presented us with an opportunity to create an exciting, full-blooded, Stone Age horror story for older children. It was conceived as a graphic novel that could be serialised in action filled, 5 page episodes. Based on careful research, MeZolith is a conjectural reconstruction of the lives of a small tribal group, living about 10,000 years ago, on the western shores of the North Sea basin, (just above the long-flooded region which geographers have named Doggerland). We follow a dramatic year in the life of Poika, a boy on the cusp of adulthood.
