MezoLith Vol. 1 by Adam Brockbank
The first volume of this graphic novel set in the mesolithic era is back in print, with Volume Two due out later this year.
There is an insightful interview with Ben Haggarty over on the Paste Magazine site.
A few weeks ago, I went to Leeds for the Comics Forum.
Having only ever passed through Leeds on the train, I was pleased to have the chance to look around.
While in the museum I also came across this excellent of mosaic of Romulus and Remus and a slightly demented looking wolf. I love it. It comes from a floor in the Roman city of Isurium Brigantum – now Aldborough in North Yorkshire.
The conference itself was held in Leeds Central Library. What a fantastic place (with beautiful cafe and Art Gallery in the same building).
I listened to lots of great papers at the conference, but of key interest to readers of this blog were papers by Paul Bristow, Sarah McNicol, John Miers and Lydia Wysocki, and John Swogger.
Paul Bristow talked about the community projects and comics he’s worked on through Magic Torch Comics.
John Swogger talked about his past and future comics projects related to archaeological fieldwork and history on islands in the Pacific and Caribbean.
John also had print copies of his Anglesey comics on hand.
If you’re not planning on visiting North Wales anytime soon you can read them online.
Sadly, I couldn’t stay on for Thought Bubble. Next year maybe…
This comic was created in collaboration with Prof Howard Williams. I’m incredibly grateful to Howard for taking the time to work on this, and for all his feedback on the comic and his insights into the story of Weland. You can read more about this aspect of Howard’s research on his blog.
Print copies of Weland will be on sale soon…
