Rob Williams developing comics back in Wales

Wales 24/7 reported the comics writer Williams is returning to his home country to attend a library convention, and is also working on something pretty fishy:
Comic book writer Rob Williams is returning to his home turf in the Rhondda this coming Tuesday afternoon [ed note 30th] to take part in the Welsh Libraries’ Summer of Fun extravaganza.

Rob – who has written for some of the world’s biggest pop culture titles like Doctor Who, Star Wars and Indiana Jones – is currently developing the Roy of the Rovers series of YA Adult Graphic Novels.
Though not mentioned in the article per se, I think he also has DC's Suicide Squad to his writing credits (there's a picture at the top from from of the coverscans). But what's really eyebrow raising is if he's working in young-adult storytelling, which hasn't benefited the comics medium in the long run. So if he's working on the YA category, that could end up being pretty appalling.
But next Tuesday afternoon (30th August) he’ll be rolling up his sleeves and showing children aged 7 and up how to share their own sci-fi stories and more in comic or graphic format.

“I want them to see that you don’t need to be an artist to be a comic book writer. I’m the writer, not an illustrator,” says Rob. “Anyone can do this. I just want children to harness their ideas and use their imagination.”
But what are the chances he's going to feed them leftist propaganda, based on his writing for the YA category? Exactly why there's not much point in being optimistic he's going to contribute anything promising at this library event. And by the way, you may not need to be an artist to understand writing, but it helps to have an artist who can fully realize the ideas in illustrations when you're working in comics. So I think his assertion is awkward at best.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
