War of the Worlds on Sale at the Pop Up Comic Shop

A warning, some of the contents of this post may not be suitable for those with a heart condition or under a certain age!

When I initially came up with the idea of splitting the group into teams to tackle some of the classics stories of world literature, Little did I envisage this carnage I'm about to publicise on this Blog. The 3 ladies involved in this venture went above and beyond what was expected and took the H.G.Wells classic and turned it upside down. Drawing on their observation powers, they dissected the world in which they lived and produced characters that epitomises the anti hero to them .
I dint want to say anymore, but in the opening statement I warned you.

Here is the edited down version of the teams adverts for their comic books. Not safe for Children

Pop Up Comic Book Shop

With the degree show fast approaching for 3rd Year Students. With Cartoon and Comic Arts only being 2 years old we've not got a degree show as such... But instead we are working along the Universities Fringe Show and have started to put together a Pop Up Comic Book Shop that will be open from 6pm Friday 7th June till the 12th June. The aim once again is to get the students to sell their work, this time to a home grown audience and over the next few days I'll be attempting to do a quick introduction to the material and the artists who have contributed to the stall.

Initial ideas for the walls around the pop up comic book shop.Students came in and drew their characters from the comics that they will be selling at the stall.

Many Thanks to the Technical staff who helped to put the shop together. Stu Porter inspired and Mark the new member to the faculty excellent team added the know how to put it together.
