Author Michael Barrett produces this graphic novel: Preston North End – The Rise of the Invincibles. Illustrated by Roy of the Rovers artist David Sque, the exciting graphic novel charts the early days of football and the formation of one its greatest ever teams!
In the summer of 1883, William Sudell set out on a quest – pure in honesty, extreme in vision.
What happened would change the face of modern football forever.
This is the story of a club – born of men from factories and mills – which blazed a trail through British football. A club fuelled by the ferocious ambition of one man, who garnered a team blessed with glorious talent and a sheer bloody-minded refusal to ever give in. A team that touched on perfection and passed into legend, forever to be called… INVINCIBLE.
The Rise of The Invincibles Book is the exciting full-colour, graphic history about the birth and early success of one of England’s most famous clubs.
Penned and created by writer Michael Barrett, illustrated by Roy of the Rovers artist David Sque, and with a Foreword by former player and now BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson, this evocative book presents the days of the Invincibles as you have never seen them before. And now you can hear the story behind the book in a special illustrated talk by the author, Michael Barrett.
