BOO COVER preview

Boo! is a horror comic for kids who love a good scare. It’s the creation of Paul Harrison-Davies and Andrew Waugh, and includes work from Warwick Johnson Cadwell, Jonathan Edwards, James Howard, Gary Northfield, and Jamie Smart.

It’s aimed at 8+ kids (and adults may well love it as well with the talent involved!) It’s launching this year (fingers crossed) at Thought Bubble in November.
