Freedom Bound

FB_softcover_copy

And my next book is… Freedom Bound, written and drawn by myself, with brilliant ink and colouring assistance from Shazleen Khan and lettering by Robin Jones, in association with University of Glasgow researchers, Professor Simon Newman and Nelson Mundell, edited by Sha Nazir and published by BHP books.

Freedom Bound follows the stories of Ann, Jamie and Joseph, three young enslaved people as they escape their masters in 18th Century Scotland. All of their fact-based stories have come to light following recent research carried out by the University of Glasgow’s Runaway Slaves in Britain project.

Twelve thousand copies are being printed and distributed for free to every Scottish school and the book also contains notes and study guides drawn from Simon and Nelson’s original research material. But you can also purchase copies directly through the BHP website now, or from all decent comic and book shops.

Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be posting some original sketches, pencils and pages.

I’ll also be signing copies of Freedom Bound at the BHP booth N729 this Saturday 27th October at the forthcoming MCM London Comic Con from 1pm. See you then?!

Incognegro Renaissance

IncRen_book_lr

You wait all this time for a book by Warren Pleece (you do, don’t you?!) and then two come along at the same time!

First off, collecting the recent Berger Books/ Dark Horse prequel series Incognegro Renaissance, written by Mat Johnson, edited by Karen Berger, designed by Richard Bruning and drawn by me, comes this little beaut.

Incognegro Renaissance, set during the Harlem Renaissance several years before the original Incognegro A Graphic Mystery, follows the adventures of cub reporter Zane Pinchback as he passes as white for the first time to investigate the suspicious death of black writer, Xavier Mignon.

As relevant and as page-turning as the original, you can get hold of a copy from all decent comic and book shops now, or online via the Dark Horse website here.
