IAN RANKIN:
CRIME & COMICS



Devouring The Beano proved to be a formative influence on this Edinburgh lad who grew up to become an acclaimed author of crime fiction. Now he has turned to writing comics and his debut graphic novel, a John Constantine: Hellblazer original entitled Dark Entries, is due next year. Ian Rankin shares his passions for reading and writing comics and for their role in improving youth literacy, in a conversation with fellow comics fan Toby Litt.
