Brighton: The Graphic Novel (Queenspark Books)

I am very proud of this project which involved working with Chris Hagan, artist, to create the opening story for this graphic novel. (More details to follow!)

Jim won a competition by QueenSpark Books to be one of a dozen writers to work on this Graphic Novel about the history and people of Brighton. He wrote the opening story, Seawater, about a fisherman in 18th Century Brighthelmstone and collaborated with artist, Chris Hagan, to produce the final work. Lots more pictures on Chris’ blog here.

“I was transfixed by Seawater, from Jim Holland and Chris Hagan… A maritime epic of unrequited love, hard toil and the power of the sea.” APlaceToHangYourCape.com

Brighton: The Graphic Novel has such a fresh feel”
The Argus

Brighton: The Graphic Novel uses the history of one of Britain’s most celebrated cities as its starting point. The result is a startlingly

original and fascinating publication spanning more than 300 years from the 1700s to the present day.”
