HUNT EMERSON helps celebrate 40 years of strange phenomena with a four page full colour strip in the latest issue of the Fortean Times.
The cartoonist takes a trip down memory lane for an autobiographical four page strip by way of visiting Moseley to meet Bob Rickard and how it lead to him creating illustrations and strips that have peppered the magazine all these years since. The strip is available in the current Fortean Times 308 that is on sale at all good newsagents, with his Phenomenomix strip also appearing regulary in the magazine. Also available is Myth Conceptions, a collection of material from the magazine by Mat Coward and Emerson.
THE 44th largest international cartoon festival in the world is due to take place in Cootehill, County Cavan, Ireland over the weekend of 14th - 15th September.
With a host of internationally renowned cartoonists famous for their humorous depictions of the famous and infamous due at the event, we suspect that Birmingham's own Hunt Emerson will be taking a trip across the Irish Sea to take part since he designed the poster depicted here.
We are informed that there will be sketching sessions on the streets and in a number of venues throughout the weekend.... Further information can be found on the poster!

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED in the 14th century, Dante Alighieri's Inferno takes on a new lease of life - no less relevant, but decidedly more humorous one expects - as adapted by Birmingham based cartoonist Hunt Emerson.
Several years in the making, this adaptation of classical material into the comic strip medium is published by Knockabout and will sit proudly alongside Emerson's other transliterations such as D.H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
Said to be "a warm tribute a warm tribute from the master of one art form to the grand master of another", it will no doubt also look pretty good and be funny as Hell too!
The book will also feature an essay by Kevin Jackson explaining how the comic book has been developed from the original verse, pointing out some of the more complicated jokes, and inviting readers to go back to tackle Dante for themselves.
Inferno will be available in all good bookshops and comics speciality shops in Great Britain from mid-October. Last Gasp are acting as distributors in the USA, and already people there are busy, happily promoting it, as can be seen by the Youtube link below:
