Stray Lines is a comic book anthology featuring new work from Philip Barrett, Barry Hughes, Gus Hughes, Chris Judge & Andrew Judge, and Paddy Lynch.

Conceived as an opportunity to showcase some of Irelands most exciting and original comic creators together in a beautifully designed and produced publication, Stray Lines will make a handsome addition to any graphic novel collection as well as being a go-to source for new original Irish comic book talent.

Each artist has produced a 12 page contribution giving them ample space to demonstrate their own unique take on comic book storytelling. With no overriding theme except an emphasis on great material each contributor is free to explore ideas close to their own hearts. From Chris Judges tale of an illustrator caught up in World War II (a collaboration with his brother, Andrew), Barry Hughes beautifully illustrated hallucinogenic dream-world tale 'The Glass Trampoline', to Philip Barrett’s cryptic blind alley, ‘Endless Lap’, this 64 page collection delivers a substantial punch of storytelling suss.

We want to present this work in as best a package as possible, so all funds raised will be go towards our printing costs, procuring isbn numbers and some promotion in bookshops. We will be working with Plus Print (2011 Irish Small Printer of the Year) to ensure that this book will look and feel superb.
