Once you step inside Montague Terrace, there are no rules...the stories flipping back and forth between past and present, and as a repository of dreams/nightmares; it's often hard to tell where reality ends and fantasy begins for these people.

Synopsis

Meet the residents of Montague Terrace: landlocked sailors, fake pet psychics, hounded inventors and randy postmen, unsuccessful megalomaniacs, nervous magicians, and 1930s detectives—all under one roof

In Montague Terrace, nothing is quite what is seems. Within its boundaries live an array of strange and extraordinary residents, including Paul Gregory, self-exiled pop crooner holed up in his Montague hovel for close to 40 years, with only fading memories of a semi-successful music career and a bottle of JD for company. Mrs. Beatrice Green, codename Babushka, an aged former special ops agent fighting a new war against overzealous council officials. Marvo the Magic Bunny and Mystical Marvin, a pair of down-on-their luck entertainers, shielding a disturbing past. The Puppeteer, toiling away day and night, pulling the strings of world events and causing chaos out of order. Similar in tone to Black Hole, this book about an extraordinary address comes from legendary veteran graphic artists.
