Haphaven: Louie Joyce in conversation with Gabriel Clarke
Artist Louie Joyce, co-creator of one of this season’s hottest YA graphic novels, Haphaven, chats about it to GRAPHIC co-founder Gabriel Clarke!
Ever-superstitious Alex Mills will do anything to avoid a jinx. Picking up pennies, knocking on wood, collecting rabbit’s feet . . . you name it. That is until she steps on a crack and it actually does break her mother’s back.
To save her mom, Alex must follow Hubbub Caskside, a trusty leprechaun, on a journey through the end of a rainbow to Haphaven, the world where all of Earth’s superstitions draw their power…

Louie Joyce is an award-winning Australian comics creator and illustrator.
After spending his childhood dreaming of becoming an astronaut, superhero, futuristic bikie punk, enchanted mermaid or something cool like that, Louie realised he’d been dreaming a little too long and most that stuff was impossible anyway. Luckily he can draw pretty well so he’s able to experience all those things and more by putting pencil to paper. He CAN be an enchanted mermaid, y’know, if he wants to.
His comics include Past the Last Mountain (Winner of a 2017 Silver Ledger Award), The Many Harold Holts of Space & Time, Astral and self published books MISHMASH & HODGEPODGE.
