Another anthology comic commemorating the World War One is in the works as the 100th anniversary of the war’s beginning looms.
Like several other projects such as To End All Wars and Indian publisher Campfire’s stunning-looking World War One graphic novel, written by Britain’s Alan Cowsill (out next week in the UK), Memorial – The Great War Centennial Anthology will also commemorate those who fought and fell in the course of the war. All proceeds from the book will be donated to charities that promote peace and tolerance across the globe.
A Facebook group has been set up here to focus the project by co-ordinator James Lynch – if you’re not on Facebook then contact him via email@example.com to express an interest.
