From the creator of the darkly cheeky comic book series Francis Bear comes a new comic book for children.
Anders and the Comet centres around a squirrel and the adventures he has with his friends during the school holidays. They get up to your usual kid stuff – building a cubby in the forest, going to the water park, being blown away during a storm while on a jumping castle. That sort of thing.
Anders is the product of Melbourne-based cartoonist and illustrator Gregory Mackay. I was delighted to catch up with Gregory to talk about the story behind and the world of Anders and the Comet.
Anders and the Comet is published by Allen & Unwin.
