There was big news concerning Bayou Arcana yesterday...
We had a story in The Guardian newspaper!!! :D :D
Back in October a Guardian journalist got in contact with the legendary Nic Wilkinson (Slaughterman's Creed, Cancer Town and illustrator for Bayou Arcana story: Swamp Pussy) requesting information on Bayou Arcana to include it in an article about the UK comics world and female creators!
As some may know already Bayou Arcana appears to have a completely unique creator pairing to any other comic/graphic novel across the small press, indie or mainstream board!
ALL the illustrators are female and ALL writers are male!
The article was to be about the diversity of storytelling that is happening in independent comics and, in particular, how the stereotype of comics being a male dominated industry by both creators and readers does not apply to the exciting stuff being done in the indie world!
So here (for anyone that missed it) are scans of the article for you to read at your own pleasure!!!
Oh, and note art by yours truly featured at the bottom of page 2! :P
This isn't the only bit of breaking news regarding Bayou Arcana either!
I can now reveal that we have been working on a BA Facebook group, where everyone can view development artwork from all the creators involved, take a sneeky peek at some completed pages and stay in tuned with news and updates!!
