As mentioned in his recent ICN interview, Alan Nolan will be launching a new edition of Sancho — Ireland’s favourite Dublin-based Mexican ex-exorcist-priest-cum-demon-hunter black-horror-comedy comic. The launch will be this weekend at the MCM Ireland Comic Con in the RDS. Previously shortlisted for two prestigious Eagle awards and written and illustrated by Alan Nolan, this marks the return of Sancho to the comic book shelves after an absence of four years!
Alan Nolan is the co-creator, with Ian Whelan, of Sancho, and is also the author and of The Murder Can Be Fatal Mysteries series and The Big Break Detectives Casebook, all graphic novels for younger readers, published by the O’Brien Press. His latest book for O’Brien’s, Fintan’s Fifteen, an illustrated novel about the worst U12s hurling team in Ireland (tagline: You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… you’ll hurl!) is available nationwide from 21st April.
