Witches & Crows Debut
Tuesday, 21 August 2018
Hello Barking Supporters,
Just a quick update before I take a couple of weeks break for the end of Summer. This Wednesday, 22nd August, marks a very special day for me. Not only is it New Comic Books Day but the first time I will have work published in a major Comics title. Jeff Lemire, a creator of otherworldly tales & a mind boggling abundancy of award winning works invited me to draw a pin-up of one of the characters from his series ‘Black Hammer’ for Dark Horse Comics. If you are yet to be hooked on the series I urge you to go back to the beginning and discover how a seeemingly unconnected gang of extraordinary beings ended up stuck on a remote farmhouse. It’s one of my favourite titles and a rip roaring tale. Once up to date you can pick up Black Hammer: Age of Doom #4 for my pin-up debut. Jeff is also a fellow Barking supporter so I am extra grateful for the opportunity. It was a real pleasure to work with one of his glorious creations and I hope the fans will like it! You can find out more at: https://www.darkhorse.com/Comics/3002-555/Black-Hammer-Age-of-Doom-4
And there’s more exciting news as I will also be debuting my first collaborative comic in this year’s Thought Bubble Festival Anthology. I was invited by Ram V, writer & creator of many fine titles (Paradiso, Black Mumba, These Savage Shores) and felllow Unbounder with his graphic novel ‘Grafity’s Wall’ that will also debut at the festival. Ram has written a brooding fairytale 4 page comic that I had the pleasure to draw, it will also be lettered by Aditya Bidikar so another debut for me. (I apologise in adavance for the scrawly lettering I’m doing on Barking!). Our comic will be published in the anthology and available in print or digitally after the festival. If you’re lucky enough to be going to Thought Bubble this year Ram will be there so go say hi & pick up a copy of Grafity’s Wall. I cannot wait for mine, it promises to be a unique and intimate tale plus Anand Radhakrishnan’s artwork looks astounding. You can book tickets now at: https://www.thoughtbubblefestival.com/visit
Sadly I won’t be at the festival this year as my daughter has her own debut at primary school this September. So in light of that I will be taking a short break to spend some time with her and get her ready for her new adventure. My social media feeds will be a little quiet but not completely down and I will be back in September with more updates on Barking. I’ve picked up some very productive new habits from my recent collaborations and hope to hit September in full swing. I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and thank you for helping me to bring my story to print. There’s still plenty of room for backers so if you know someone who may be interested in Barking please direct them to the project page at: https://unbound.com/books/barking/
Best wishes, Lucy
