The Murder Mile is a graphic novel set in 1954 with the race to break four minutes for the Mile as a background story. It is published by Self Made Hero.
“A beautifully illustrated detective story
that unfolds alongside the race to break the four-minute mile.
The Murder Mile is like Chariots of Fire as rewritten by Raymond
Chandler, a mash-up that is completely delightful on the page.”
“Collicutt’s watercolour artwork is a glorious tribute
to the splashy élan of Fifties advertisements and cigarette cards,
and there’s no shortage of impressive scene-setting, from
widescreen sequences at the Normandy landings to evocative
renderings of Jet Age streets, diners and stadiums.”
“An artistic triumph of suspense placed under starter’s orders
with an introduction by track legend Steve Ovett.”
