There’s a piece written by me about The Ayatollah’s Son in this month’s Crikey! – ‘The Great British Comics Magazine’:
John ‘Kinky’ Pertwee looking slightly perturbed at the prospect of many mini doctors on the cover there… There’s a bunch of top stuff in this issue, click through the link above to find out more, and even see Bryan Talbot attractively modelling a copy…
As you can see, it’s all rather impeccably laid-out, as is the the rest of the mag! In my time playing writer, I talk about how I came to be involved with the book, working with Pat, the different stages of researching and drawing the strip, and a load of other artistic polemic I managed to crowbar in.
Pat reckons we might even manage to get a graphic novel out of this short story – I think the mileage in the characters and the stories we have left to tell is definitely there. Watch this space.
