NELSON, the Spice Girls and the End of the World

Not sure if I posted this before - I don’t think I did? Anyway, this was my portion of the graphic novel NELSON, which came out a couple of years ago (and is still available here). I wrote and drew this over the course of a week I think, and it’s one of the things I’m most proud of in my career. My chosen year was 1997, hence all the chat about the Spice Girls, the oblique reference to Princess Diana and the generally febrile, hangover-y feeling everything has. Britpop was on its arse, the horrible next century was hoving into view. Travis and the Stereophonics were beginning to trouble the charts. Chris Moyles rising.

Click to read these - they're worth a closer look.
