Simon Grennan was signing copies of his new graphic novel Dispossession at Gosh Comics in London last Friday. I discovered that it is customary for the artist to do more than merely sign his name on the title page. He does this, of course, but he also draws a cartoon for you too. No wonder there was a bit of a queue.
I got a copy to give as a birthday gift and then, perhaps a little cheekily, asked Simon to sign my copy of the French language edition published earlier this year. Alas, or should that be “Helas”, Simon signed the dedication in English, but he assured me the drawing was in French.
