Charlie Higson's The Enemy – Illustrated Map Detail 4
While Charlie and I agreed that it would be best to leave the look of specific heroes and villains to the imagination of his readers, it felt right to depict some key players in greater detail.
Here – representing his covert tracking of the monstrous army of adults led by the vile St. George across North London and beyond – we find one of my favourite characters; the secretive, determined, resourceful 'Shadowman'.
He's a fascinating addition to Books 3 and 4 in the ongoing series, and has some of the most gripping adventures so far seen as he observes, and inevitably tackles, the rise of the army.
