BAGGAGE tells the tale of Randall, a happy-go-lucky but disaster-prone lost property officer working for the Tram service, deep in the heart of Triptych City.
Randall's weary boss has presented him with an impossible ultimatum: either he locates the owner of the oldest item stored in the immense lost property warehouse by the end of the day, or he’s out of a job!
So begins an adventurous journey through a wondrous city. Randall’s enquiries attract a myriad of bizarre, often amusing, and sometimes dangerous characters. Clues are uncovered where and when he least expects them, and help arrives from the strangest of quarters.
But wherever Randall goes, trouble is sure to follow. Will he succeed in his impossible mission? And even if he does, just how much of the city will be left standing?
“Baggage and Monkey Nuts share many features - Lorenzo's artwork is just as manically energetic, just as packed with intricate (and funny) detailing throughout, functioning both as extras for your enjoyment and a way to slow your reading slightly, to allow the reader to absorb the story. Similarly Robin's story is every bit as manic and energetic as Monkey Nuts, just as fast and furious, just as laden with clever gags...The whole adventure is perfectly constructed for younger readers as well, lots of build up to a set piece, then a huge climactic moment, and then on to the next piece, the next clue. A way of delivering a satisfying, episodic narrative within one continuous story, even when you're not writing for serialisation.”
