The Subtle Knife: The Graphic Novel



A stunning graphic novel adaptation of The Subtle Knife, the second book in the His Dark Materials trilogy.

Enter the remarkable world of His Dark Materials like never before with this stunning, full-colour graphic novel.

Lyra has stepped into a brand-new world. Will has just killed a man.

Their paths cross in Cittàgazze. In a city haunted by soul-eating Spectres, troops of angels and vengeful witches, they find in each other a welcome ally.

Both are hoping to find something in this strange world: Lyra must discover the meaning of Dark Matter, while Will is desperately searching for his missing father.

What they find instead is a deadly secret, an object with extraordinary power. Each step of their journey brings them closer to an even bigger threat - and the shattering truth of their own destiny.
