A Sneak Peek at the Comixed Comics

Posted by chichi | Comics | Thursday 5 November 2009 7.01 pm

As we mentioned after last week’s Comixed event, we are having a number of comics made from the COMIXED: A NETWORKED CONVERSATION event at the Zion Arts Centre, Manchester on 28th October.

The comics are being illustrated and created by Manchester-based designer/illustrator team YOUNG who attended the event.

YOUNG are Gethin Vaughan and Pete Jarvis.  They have also illustrated for the V&A museum and various other projects in the Manchester area.  Find out more on their website.

They’ve kindly sent in a sneak peek of the comics ahead of the full launch later this week, along with a pithy blog post:

“Half way through the week – it certainly has flown by!

Three comic-book covers in – and we are pretty happy with the results so far! We decided to represent each of the debates as ‘album cover’ artwork – hoping that they will give a brief, humorous introduction into some of the issues raised. So far we have drawn an amalgamation of death eating worms, genetically modified chickens and unlikely heroes.”

Here come a sneak peek at the the comic-book covers.  Click on the image to see a larger version.    We think they look grand! What do you think?  Please share your thoughts in the comments.
