Scotland recognises native comics greats
Next February Edinburgh's Waverley Books is published a full colour graphic novel adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale Kidnapped, written by Alan Grant and illustrated by Cam Kennedy. It's part of Edinburgh’s UNESCO City of Literature programme that's kicking into gear and an exciting project all round. Well, the news keeps on getting better. The National Library of Scotland - one of the snootiest and least helpful libraries I've ever been inside - has bought Cam's stunning artwork for the nation! Will wonders never cease?
