Comics: Adam Cadwell’s King Of Things…

Published On December 18, 2012 | By Richard Bruton | Comics

Over on Instagram for the past week or so, Adam Cadwell has been serialising his all-ages strip The King Of Things, one panel at a time…. sort of an advent calendar with a difference…

Here’s Adam….

“I tried a different style than my usual work, aiming for a more classically animated look, and although it took me some time to figure out this new method of drawing backgrounds, I’m pretty happy with the result.

Last week, on Tuesday 4th December, the famous and long running children’s comic The Dandy went on sale in print for the last time and BBC Radio Manchester popped around to my house, at 7am, to interview me about my thoughts on this and to discuss my own work. I was thrilled that reporter Michelle Adamson took such an interest in my work and, bizarrely, we ended up performing an impromptu radio play of ‘The King of Things & The One Trick Wand’ live on air! You can listen to the bulk of the performance here.”

The full strip is over on Adam’s website, and he promises more King Of Things in 2013.
