Worthing writer to launch graphic novel at Waterstones

FOLLOWING a successful launch in Bristol, a graphic novelist is now launching his latest creation in Worthing.

Bayou Arcana is a graphic novel about a group of slaves who rise up against their “white masters”, and will be launched in Waterstones on Saturday, June 2.

The novel was put together by an all-women team of artists, and an all-men team of writers, which Jimmy Pearson, creator of the novel, said is what makes it unique.

A book signing and launch will start at Waterstones, in Montague Street, Worthing, at 10.30am, with an after party at Kar’ben, in Portland Road, starting at 6.30pm.
