Dave Gibbons, Comics Laureate to write foreword for new graphic novel from QueenSpark Books will be writing the foreword for its’ new graphic novel, Brighton’s Graphic War.
The book will utilise his specially designed font throughout, and his foreword offers a great insight into the artwork and tales depicted inside the book. Dave is a British comic book artist, writer and letterer. In 2014 he was appointed the UK's first Comics Laureate, to act as an ambassador for comic books and their potential to improve literacy.
Best known for his collaborations with writer Alan Moore, which include Watchmen (one of the best-selling graphic novels of all time), the Superman story For the Man Who Has Everything and on Kingsmen: Secret Service (with Mark Millar) and as artist for UK anthology 2000 AD for over 35 years, Dave notes, “This is exactly the sort of project we need to encourage young people to discover the joys of creating their own comics.”
The book will engage readers of all ages, those who love graphic novels as well as those who've never read one. QueenSpark Books is currently crowdfunding to publish this exciting new graphic novel and offer rewards from this project from £10-200 including a signed exclusive print of the cover by Children’s Laureate Chris Riddell.
