Sir Glen and Old Greenock Characters



To accompany our very popular Big Map, a new graphic of Sir Glen with some Old Greenock Characters by Andy Lee has now been installed at The Dutch Gable House. The wee detail above gives you a glimpse at a few of the characters.

The Tales of the Oak blog has been running excerpts from John Donald's Old Greenock Characters for a few years now, hopefully we will see it republished soon. Meantime, we are developing a few projects which involve the characters, some of whom also cameo in the Tales of the Oak comic - still available FREE from Dutch Gable.

As for Sir Glen, as well as showcasing some more items and stories from his past in the study, he will be unveiling more local mysteries when he returns as the star of his own comic next year...
