We put 5 Questions to Gavin Mitchell, the artist behind The Trolltooth Wars...
Q) What’s the secret origin story of Trolltooh Wars and how did it all come together?
The Trolltooth Wars by Steve Jackson started out as a novel set in the Fighting Fantasy universe. When my good friend and writer, PJ Montgomery, came to me with his idea for a graphic novel adaptation and I jumped at the chance. We got the licence and Steve's backing and then took it toKickstarter, which was successful! And that's how The Trolltooth Wars came about! (I've omitted the blood, sweat, tears and sleepless nights)
Q) What inspires you to create?
Drawing is something that I'm always learning from and I love that it will always have something to teach me.
Q) Since you started, what moment has been your highlight so far?
The privilege to be published in David Lloyd's Aces Weekly (an excellent online comic anthology and David is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet).
Q) This is your first year at True Believers, what can people expect to find at your table on the day?
The Trolltooth Wars graphic novel, prints and I'll also be doing commissions.
Q) If you could pick one line that inspires you from a comic or nerd culture as your life motto, which would you choose?
1. Serve the public trust
2. Protect the innocent
3. Uphold the law
