Luna Park

Darin Strauss, the novelist, said of Luna Park that it was "The most satisfying story I've read — in any medium — in years. Perhaps the greatest work of one of America's greatest writers." Kevin Baker’s first graphic novel created with internationally acclaimed artist Danijel Zezelj, has a list of fans as long as your arm and that includes Ernex, a motion graphics designer and art director based in London.

Ernex took separate elements from throughout the novel, using the original frames and editing them in Photoshop then bringing them to life through animation.  Stick Johnny Cash singing Hurt on top and as such it’s probably the best teaser that the graphic novel could have, combining the essentials of Luna Park, from historical novel, immigrant fiction to century spanning crime thriller – I think that long list of fans will love it.
