Art from The Kirknewton Story, the history of Kirknewton and West Lothian told in a comic book format, is to be exhibited at the Howden Park Centre in Livingston from 3rd February to 9th April. Some of the artists involved will also attend a ComicCon on Saturday 11th March to sell comics, do signings and draw sketches.
The comic, supported by Heritage Lottery Scotland, has been made up from memories and stories from members of the Kirknewton community. It is written by Colin Maxwell (Commando), features work of 23 artists, lettered by Rob Jones and edited by Tony Foster.
The exhibition and comic also features work from Kirknewton Primary School children who researched the history of the area, shared stories with multigenerational workshops and produced their own comics with artist Kev F Sutherland.
The comic will be available for sale at the event.
