After the success of ‘Fallen,’ a graphic novel set in Leith, we have decided to embark on another comic book project. It will be based on the Life of Bill Rae, who was born in 1920. We will take three periods of his life, his time in variety theatre in the 1930s, being a prisoner of war in World War Two and life in Soho in the 1950s.
We are grateful to Ian Emerson, who was the artist on ‘Fallen’ and started us off on the comic book path. He is off to pasture new and we have a new artist, Robert Henderson. Its a long term project, hopefully to be completed autumn of next year.
Willie Mars, around 1934- 35. The stage name of Bill Rae.
