It's been a long time, perhaps almost half a century, since I have read comics, and I usually shudder at the thought of a popular novel being delivered as a comic. Even though I once used to devour Classics.
Anyway this book, THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST CRIME COMICS, edited by Paul Gravett, came well recommended, so I borrowed it from the library.
But it's no good - they are just not my cup of tea. I don't know what it is, the block capitals, the fact that you have to "read" each little bit, the fact that they feel cramped. Don't let me put you off though. You may enjoy them.
If you feel inclined, over on Paul Gravett's site, you can view 8 pages of comics online.
On the other hand, I quite often enjoy a single cartoon, and I really couldn't resist posting this one even though I probably shouldn't. My excuse is that perhaps I may interest you in subscribing to Unshelved. I get it every day in my email, all about libraries and books.
Will this one persuade people to read Flesh House?
If you want to check the "real thing", pop over to Stuart MacBride's blog, Half Head.
About himself he says "Stuart MacBride lives in the North East of Scotland, where he writes gruesome crime novels and grows gruesome potatoes."
