Eight hundred and fifty thousand people fled for their lives to Europe last year. (At least three thousand four hundred and six people died in the Mediterranean sea.) Of that great mass of people, a few thousand have washed up Calais, France, trying to attempt the dangerous crossing to England. By the French and British governments, they’ve been hung out to dry.
Thanks to the generosity of the my crowd funders, I printed and distributed “about 12,000” copies of this cartoon. These were taken by grassroots refugee support groups and sold in aid of their regional efforts. Thanks everyone for getting this out there. I’ve nearly run out now.
Single, signed copies of the comic can be bought from my web shop.
I’m currently working on a graphic novel about Calais, of which this comic forms the first chapter. Available Spring 2017.
