Comics, of the emotional variety
Tom Humberstone won an Eagle award for his comic, "How to Date A Girl In Ten Days" 2008. Which apparently is "the comic equivalent to a Bafta".
I've just come into contaact with his work through Stephen Collins who I did a contact report on a couple of months ago.
To be honest I didn't realy know what to expect but looking over his (very well presented) site there are full pages of the comic and the story pulls you right in. Most of the panels are of peoples faces which lends itself to the emotional theme of the story with a strong use of text surrounding the story and having a great impact on the reader.
The site also containd some insight to the creation of the comic and there are links to his blog, sketchbook and illustrations. Well worth checking out.
