A very modern project, Blood and Valour, written by Matt Beames and illustrated by Marcus Pullen has pulled off a wonderful coup in that Guy Stauber, who has worked with Marvel, Disney and DC Comics, is also illustrating cover and other art work for this project. A must check it out for fans of graphic novels, adventure tales and historical fiction, I would have thought.
I was only too glad to put the word out about this project as I am a huge fan of any form of literature that would encourage reluctant readers especially. I think graphic novels and comic books have a huge role to play here and to be able to combine entertainment with history is a fantastic thing to do. And the stories of Sir Bevis are pretty fantastic in themselves!
I can't draw for the proverbial toffee (the UK has such strange sayings!) but admire those who can. But of course all writers will seek to "draw" pictures with our prose and/or poetry. So when we write, are the images we are conjuring up in our readers strong enough to carry them through to the end of the story? That is the writer's challenge, each and every time. That is the fun of writing too!
