Victoria McCollum and Andrew Sneddon explore how dark and difficult heritage can be creatively retold with an ethical impulse through the curation of this dark supernatural graphic novel, illustrated by David Campbell. 

Animated and Edited by David McIntyre

The Witches of Islandmagee is a well-researched rural horror set in the early 18th century in rural Ireland. A witch trial that is recounted as though real, with supernatural solicitings and evocative art that transports the readers to a darker time in Irish, and British, history.
