Andy Fanton pens “A Tale of Two Scottish Cities” for Jurys hotel chain

Jurys had a hotel in Edinburgh and one in Glasgow… but now they have two in each city and to celebrate the recent launch of their new accommodation, they created this comic strip all about both great cities… it’s Shakespeare with a Scotch Twist!

Follow Dr. Livingstone and his new friend in Tesla’s Top Secret Time Machine! – the work of Andy Fanton, whose credits also include The Beano, VIZ and Private Eye, BBC Radio and creator of Lord Likely –  to discover Edinburgh and Glasgow’s history, culture, and how no visit to Scotland is complete without seeing both cities.

Jurys Inn hotels are ideally situated in city centres across the UK, Ireland and the Czech Republic – with their hotels providing guests with extremely convenient locations from which to enjoy local attractions.

It’s great to see business using comics in this way and of course it’s the second that we’ve seen this week, with CompareTheMarket also commissioning a Meerkat Movies comic, drawn by Neal Adams.
