The sky is falling in

November 9, 2013 in Events, General, News

News that a satellite is descending to earth in an uncontrolled fashion reminds us that there’s nothing new under the sun – as these cartoons from Martin Minton – A cartoon novel by Ken Pyne show.

Ken told us:

Funny, I was only thinking of that book a couple of days ago in Waterstones. When it came out the publisher sent a blurb round saying it was a ‘Cartoon Novel’ and a book reviewer called me ‘pretentious’ for calling it that. How times have changed – now you can’t move around a book shop for ‘Graphic Novels’.

  1. Excellent point[and drawings] from Ken. “Graphic novel” is the new black. Or puce, or heliotrope or beige.

  2. Well, I LOLed. (Is that the phrase, Bill?)

  4. Wow! A comic book by Ken Pyne. I must admit I was assuming it was new until I read the bit at the bottom. Any idea when it was published? 

  5. Hi Will, in 1982.

  6. I’m afraid I’m old enough to remember that. Pyne ahead of his time, and no mistake.
