A COMICA REVIEW BY:

TOM HUMBERSTONE


Comic creator Tom Humberstone participated in the Comica 2007 24 Hour Comic event on 20/21 October 2007. His own 24 Hour comic, Everything You Never Wanted To Know About Crohns Disease, can be read at his web site Vented Spleen.

Just wanted to say - thank you for the invite to do the 24 hr comic. I enjoyed myself and managed to do a comic that I wasn’t too embarrassed by. It was a real learning experience. I’ve posted my comic on my website now if you fancy taking a look (if you didn’t read it on the sunday) and several comic websites are linking to it which is lovely. I’ve also had a deluge of emails and comments from people with crohns disease - explaining how much the comic meant to them and that it was a comfort. I don’t think I’ve ever had a nicer thing said about my work and I’m now thinking of possibly publishing it if I can get some funding from somewhere (the colour production would be too expensive for me right now). I may look towards the crohns association actually… Jeffrey Brown, one of my favourite comic artists - a genuine inspiration to me - even emailed me to tell me how much he liked it and I’m still in shock. So yeah - thank you for the invite. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
