Jim won a competition by QueenSpark Books to be one of a dozen writers to work on this Graphic Novel about the history and people of Brighton. He wrote the opening story, Seawater, about a fisherman in 18th Century Brighthelmstone and collaborated with artist, Chris Hagan, to produce the final work. Lots more pictures on Chris’ blog here.

“I was transfixed by Seawater, from Jim Holland and Chris Hagan… A maritime epic of unrequited love, hard toil and the power of the sea.”APlaceToHangYourCape.com
