Graphic novel serialised in The Times

"Unlikely Events: The Times starts a comic strip" by Arthur Watts (click to enlarge)

This 1930s Punch cartoon will make current Times readers chuckle, as a full-colour comic strip now appears in the paper every Monday.

Excerpt from "The Trial of the Sober Dog" by Nick Abadzis

The Trial of the Sober Dog by Nick Abadzis, a serialised graphic novel, is now in its third week. It appears in the T2 section of the paper. It doesn't appear to be on the Times website yet, but you can catch up at Nick Abadzis's blog.

You can see more work by Arthur Watts here, though the above cartoon was found at the Comics, Cartoons, Caricature section of a fascinating online resource called The Culture Archive
