Baillie And Hetrick Introduce Magical Glasgow in 'Red Thorn'
Modern day miracles meet the dark legends of Scottish mythology in Red Thorn, the recently launched series from writer David Baillie and artist Meghan Hetrick that's part of Vertigo's 2015 renaissance. The series is set on the streets of Glasgow, where an American girl called Isla brings her drawings to life while occult magics from centuries ago start boiling back up to the surface. Scotland's rich history --- both real and mythical --- swirls through the series like a thick mist, offering a look at the harder, grittier types of legend that seem so quintessentially Scottish. The series marks the culmination of a years of planning from Baillie and Hetrick, who spoke to ComicsAlliance about their work together, what readers can expect from the series, and just what the heck a "semmit" is.
