The Return of Garth

New Garth Character Design

The new Garth, as designed by Huw-J

Earlier this month, after a long gestation period, adventure hero Garth returned to British newspaper The Mirror – albeit, for now, only on the publication’s web site.

Now, in an exclusive interview for downthetubes, artist Huw-J of Hayena Studios talks to John Freeman about the new strip and his many plans for the character’s ongoing revival, including graphic novels.

The feature includes behind the scenes designs and other images by Huw-J, plus revelations about the next steps for the revival.
