We're jumping up and down excited to launch Spineless, our new comic in partnership with the Great North Museum: Hancock.
Pick up your free copy (we've printed 20,000) at the museum's free Spineless exhibition this summer, 1st August-1st November. And/or read it in full for free here on our blog: click the cover image on the right of the screen.
Here are links to our marvellous reviews so far:
Richard Bruton at Forbidden Planet International says: 'every comic works, all of them doing the simple things very well, keeping the storytelling through the art nice and simple, straightforward. An outreach project such as this relies on clarity, on getting the message across really well. And that’s precisely what Spineless does very, very well.'
John Freeman at Down The Tubes says: 'The strips are fun and informative and all the creators involved were, importantly, paid for working on the title (as well as clearly enjoying themselves in the process).'
We've published Spineless with a Creative Commons CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license. This means you can share the comic (physical and digital versions) with others as long as you credit our project, but you can't change the comic in any way or use it commercially. We hope this will make it easy for children, adults, teachers and other professionals to read and share Spineless. Keep in touch if you use Spineless with schools or other groups - we'd love to hear from you!
