Today we bring you a guest post from the creators of LOAf – a comic for 9-12 year olds. LOAf is available to buy at Golden Hare and we love the very tasty first issue.
Welcome to LOAf, a brand new, delightfully stocky little fellow of a comic, now available from Golden Hare and ready for consumption by ravenous comic lovers of any age, shape and size (but especially children aged 9-13). From ghouls to schools, sleigh-rides to fishing trips, LOAf Issue 1 is packed with delicious tales of humour and horror, appealing to the imaginations of older children as much as to the child inside the adult.
An immensely imaginative bunch of visual artists specialising in illustration and comics have contributed to the first issue of LOAf and the same talented bunch (with a few surprises thrown in), will be returning to make the comic’s second issue, coming out this summer. Watch this space!
At our kids workshops, the LOAf team have been collaborating with children to come up with new characters and stories for issue 2 which, will have as its theme, “Friends”, (and no, we don’t mean the sitcom!) Oh and what’s more, LOAf was made by using the zero waste to landfill company Seacourt, based in Cambridge.
