A New Comic Book? Why Not Use Your lOAf

New comic book LOAf is launching today in Cambridge at the Front Room Gallery in Gwydr Street from 3.30pm to 8pm, with the creation of a giant wall drawing…

Cambridgeshire resident Becky Palmer, an illustration PhD student at Anglia Ruskin University, and Rosie Faragher, a Bristol-based artist, illustrator and writer.

The new comic will include a mixture of stories and puzzles produced by professional artists – including many Anglia Ruskin graduates – as well as contributions from young readers.

Becky, 30, who will launch the comic in the city today, said: “The magazine is a response to our feeling that there are very few good quality comics for 9-12-year-olds currently available in the UK.  Also the range of stories, and the visuals used to tell them, is at present quite limited.

“Some excellent magazines started appearing a few years ago, such as Anorak and Okido, but nothing for the age range that we were interested in publishing for.”
