A DELUGE of comics has landed at a Cradley Heath high school to help boost literacy work in years seven and eight.

Publishing giant Titan Comics has sent more than 100 children’s favourites to Ormiston Forge Academy.

Pupils are diving into a world of fantasy heroes and time travel – encouraging reading and providing a catalyst for other work.

Pupils will be creating their own comic strips based on Shakespeare’s plays and a comic reading group will be set up.
