Ewe Don’t Want to Miss This – Sheep Trek takes off!

Earlier this month, as part of the free online event #LICAFLIVE, the Lakes International Comic Art Festival ran a “Pass the Panel” project, challenging 16 artists to create a 16-page story with the loosest of storylines, directed by Luke and Joe McGarry.

The result of this unique Comics Jam – Sheep Trek: Sheep Space Nine – is now available to read for free on both the LICAF web site, available as a PDF, and to read online on the LICAF Tapas Channel, alongside Godzilla’s Lockdown Diary and more.

Sheep Trek reveals the speed, style and sheer imagination of the incredibly talented creators took part, who are, in order of appearance, Luke McGarry, Duncan Fegredo, Steven Appleby, Rick Stromoski, Steve McGarry, Craig Gleason, Johnny Sampson, Tom Richmond, Lucie Lomová, Charlie Adlard, Bill Morrison, Sean Phillips, Michael Lark, Francis Desharnais, Jibé and Alex A.

The Pass the Panel project was co-ordinated and edited by Joe McGarry, with music for the accompanying “Walkthrough Video” by Pop Noir and with help from Thomas-Louis Côté and Richard Foster. The digital edition was designed and edited by John Freeman.
