Comics In BritainPosted: January 30, 2015
I would like to focus my project on the growth of comics in Britain. Ideally I would hope to get in touch with a creator, preferably one from the Silver Age of Comics (1956 into the 70s). I would be interested to get their take on the rise of comics in Britain, as the superhero comic was largely an American construct that was “exported” around the time of the Second World War.
If a creator were unavailable, I would hope to find a purveyor who could speak about the role of comics in Britain’s history. Comics (or more specifically their featured heroes) are fast becoming a great unifier in the expanding global pop culture, and I think it would be invaluable to get the story of someone who was in on the ground floor of their rise outside of the U.S.
