Alice In Sunderland

While I’m on the subject of graphic novels, I must mention Bryan Talbot’s Alice In Sunderland. Its subtitle is "An Entertainment" – and what an entertainment it is! A great fireworks display of a book – fizzing with ideas and connections over the history of Sunderland and the people who have strutted on its stage. If you’ve never dipped into a graphic novel, thinking that you left comic books behind with your childhood, then I do urge you to take a look at this. It will open your eyes and create sparks in your brain. Wonderful, wonderful stuff.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
