The Independent on Sunday – Review of IDP: 2043 by by Mary Talbot, Hannah Berry, Irvine Welsh, Barroux et al

"The Edinburgh Book Festival, which has just celebrated its 30th anniversary, shows that its commitment to promoting graphic novels remains strong by teaming up with the publisher Freight Books, and a dream team of novelists and artists, to visualise Scotland’s future."

I'd been looking forward to this exciting collaboration for quite some time, so I was delighted to be able to review it for The Independent on Sunday last month. It's fairly unusual to see a comic book focused on my home country of Scotland, let alone one of a glorious science fiction flavour.

Edited by crime maestro Denise Mina, this graphic novel features chapters by 2000 AD creator Pat Mills and acclaimed graphic novelist Hannah Berry; artist Will Morris; The Phoenix artist Adam Murphy; author Irvine Welsh and Doctor Who artist Dan McDaid; Mina herself and famed French artist Barroux; and Sally Heathcote: Suffragette collaborators Mary Talbot and Kate Charlesworth.

There are a couple of hiccups, but I make special note in particular of the chapter by Adam Murphy, which is the stand out diamond in an embarrassment of riches.
