Stray Lines issue 1

Conceived as an opportunity to showcase some of Irelands most exciting and original indie comic creators together in a beautifully designed and produced publication, Stray Lines will make a handsome addition to any graphic novel collection as well as being a go-to source for new original Irish comic book talent.

Each artist has produced a 12 page contribution giving them ample space to demonstrate their own unique take on comic book storytelling. With no overriding theme except an emphasis on great material each contributor is free to explore ideas close to their own hearts. From Chris Judges tale of an illustrator caught up in World War II (a collaboration with his brother, Andrew), Barry Hughes beautifully illustrated hallucinogenic dream-world only accessible through a glass coffee table, to Philip Barrett’s cryptic blind alley, ‘Endless Lap’, this 64 page collection delivers a substantial punch of storytelling suss.
