I’m very excited that this WWI graphic anthology is on its way from the printers to Soaring Penguin Press and will be arriving through letter boxes and in shops soon.
That’s partly because it looks like an interesting collection covering lots of lesser known aspects of WWI and £2 from the sale of each book will go to help the charity Médecins Sans Frontières. But mainly it’s because I wrote a fifteen page strip for it, called ‘Go Home and Sit Still‘, which has been illustrated by Arthur Goodman.
Our strip looks at the experiences of the women of the Scottish Women’s Hospital that went out to support Serbian troops in Russia in 1916/7.
I’ll also be at both launch events and the signing at The Lakes Comic Arts Festival.
Midlands dwellers can join us at the Five Leaves Bookshop launch on Wed 30th July at 7pm. Please RSVP, as the venue will depend on attendance.
For those of you in the Big Smoke there is a launch at Gosh! Comics on August 20th.
