Not ones to rest on their laurels, they have launched the new 17×23 intiative which is a new graphic short story project to help talented young graphic novelists tell their stories in a manageable and economic format. The hope is that, while the series encourages artists to write noe off stories, 17×23 can act as a springboard for more ambitious projects.
An example of this would be Ben Newmanâ€™s beautiful, disturbing and at times heartbreaking Ourobos. Printed with 4-spot colours and heavily stylised, the book tells a story of love, death and revenge centred around the mythical beast of the books title being a serpent that east itâ€™s own tale. All this makes it sound a much heavier read than you would expect, but what you have is a nice edition to this exciting project that we cannot wait to seeÂ what comes next.
