A Reintroduction To Mervyn Peake

image

This article up at Time's Europe arm looks at a new biography of Gormenghast author Mervyn Peake and talks of attempts by fans and other interested parties to claim for the novelist, poet and illustrator his rightful place in the Modern Pantheon of Imagination. It's not really comics, but although better known (and I think rightfully so) as a writer, Peake the illustrator is a definite influence on more than a few cartoonists.
