Fascinating Folklore: A Compendium of Comics and Essays

The creative seed for Fascinating Folklore began under the popular hashtag #folklorethursday. Each week John Reppion tweeted a different writing prompt on a folkloric theme that PJ Holder would swiftly adapt into a stunning single-panel comic. What began as a creative challenge between two friends rapidly developed; Reppion expanded each of his original prompts into a rich essay corresponding to each of PJ's stunning comics. The range of folkloric topics in the book is genuinely expansive, from Hawthorne, Blackberries, and the Willow tree to the legend of Boudica, the Wandjing spirits of Western Australia, and the Japanese ghost, Okiku!
