Magic Torch Comics are pleased to announce that we recently won a contract with the Scottish Parliament Corporate Body to create a series of comics focussing on different aspects of life and work in the Scottish Parliament.
Working with Primary and Secondary schools from each of the Scottish Electoral regions, the comics will explore everything from First Ministers Questions and language in Parliament through to the beehives which sit on the Scottish Parliament roof and the quirkier stories behind the building.
Work on the comic started this week in Portree High School on Skye and we’ll be sharing updates on the stories and classwork as the project progresses. The resources will be produced in English and Gaelic, and will be freely available from next year.
We were also pleased that our local MSP Stuart McMillan took the time to lodge a parliamentary motion on 19th September, to congratulate Magic Torch Comics on our new Young Start funded project Outside The Box. We’re used to working with historical documents in our projects, so it’s a nice change to become part of one.
