Notes:
"The collector. This comic was made during the Plymouth International Book Festival 2013 as part of the 'Two by Twelve' comics challenge. Seventeen artists had 24 hours (split into two 12 hour sessions) to finish a 24 page comic inspired by the Plymouth City Museum. I used six and a nine-sided dice to help me make this book. Character names, story direction and even number of panels were often chosen at random. I finished this comic with only seconds to spare."--Page [26].
"The Collector is inspired by the museums permanent and visiting exhibitions."--Artist's website.
