It's been a while coming, but today I'm starting a new web comic, The Great McGonagall, about a (somewhat fictionalised) journey from Dundee to London made in 1880 by William "Topaz" McGonagall, the worst poet in the world (more about him here and here, if you're not already familiar with him – or else read the short introductory piece in my comic, which should get you up to speed pretty quickly). I'll be posting a page every week at ZCO.MX.
McGonagall is a fascinating figure, despite (or perhaps because of) his total absence of talent. I've been thinking about doing a comic about him for some time, as his "theatrical loser" persona ticks a lot of boxes for me. Should be fun.
