Here’s a superb way to support kiwi artists as they explore the threat of climate change. Damon Keen from 3 Bad Monkeys was kind enough to send me information regarding this issue plus some images of the comic. As Damon says below, the comic will be available in late Feb/early March. You can order if you are overseas (see below for details). Lucy wrote the introduction to the anthology.
Comic Anthology with Lucy Lawless Introduction
High Water is a 96 page hardcover comic anthology featuring some of New Zealand's best comic artists, including Dylan Horrocks (Hicksville, Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen), Sarah Laing (A Fall of Light), Chris Slane (Nice Day For A War) and many others.
The stories all explore the threat of climate change, and range from the distant past to the far future, and from thoughtful to hilarious! Given Lucy's high profile as both a popular actor and passionate environmentalist, we were stoked that she was able to write an introduction for us. She's the perfect voice for this book!
High Water is being published by 3 Bad Monkeys, the publisher of Faction - NZ's premier comic anthology. It will be available in New Zealand comic shops from late February, early March. International buyers will be able to pick up a copy from www.factioncomics.co.nz
