THE work of a Rowley Regis illustrator has been included in a new comic book alongside the graphic novel world's biggest names.

Adam Bagley's work is set to feature in upcoming anthology 'Tales from the Quarantine', which is a book of self-contained stories based on the subject of isolation.

It was designed to bring comic book fans together through art and features some of the comic book world's biggest names such as Charlie Adlard who has worked on The Walking Dead, the former UK comic book laureate Hannah Berry, Ed Brubaker from DC and Marvel and Staz Johnson whose work includes Robin and Catwoman.

Adam is among the group of comic book writers and artists from 60 different countries who have come together to create the book, proceeds of which will be donated to good causes including NHS Charities Together.

The 44-year-old has three stories included in the book for which he is the script writer and illustrator, along with working on the lettering and colours.

He is unique in that he did all aspects of the work for his stories.

Adam, who has worked as an illustrator and designer since 1993, said: “Tales from the Quarantine is a unique, exciting and ambitious comic book project, the likes of which has never been seen before. I’m in awe of how it became a reality, its global success and all it has achieved for good causes.

"The involvement of top-tier talent from all over the world is staggering and I’m proud to be representing the Black Country within its pages.”

Alongside NHS Charities Together, 100% of net profit from sales of the anthology will be donated to The Hero Initiative and Last Year’s Rent Fund.

'Tales from the Quarantine' is available to pre-order online now.
