Set to launch this weekend at Glasgow Comic Con, Medieval Times is a series of minicomics from writer Craig Collins and artist Mark Brady which take a whimsical and blackly comic look at six members of the English Army as they battle in France during the Hundred Years War.
The project was born out of an idea where Collins and Brady would try and invent backstories for a bunch of plastic figures (you know the ones, the typical mass produced “bucket o’ soldiers” kinda deal), picking some of their favourites and fleshing them out into a series of brave and calamitous stories.
Brady’s artwork – which you can check out below – is absolutely fantastic, and while this may seem a little out of former SICBA Award nominee Collins’ wheelhouse (having previously worked on the likes of Roachwell and Crawl Hole), based on what we’ve seen so far, it just flat-out works!
Each of the six minicomics come packaged with the associated plastic warrior that served as its inspiration (which is absolutely brilliant!), and you can pick them up at Glasgow Comic Con on the 2nd and 3rd of July – and also in due course from Craig and Mark’s online shops (here and here).
Look out for a review in the very near future, as soon as we can get our hands on some of these bad boys.
