We’re thrilled to announce that Roy of the Rovers artist Lisa Henke will be taking the reins for Season 2, in the next set of three graphic novels! We’ve loved Lisa’s art since the birth of this new era of Roy, from her work on our Match of the Day strips to her incredible illustrations in our Roy of the Rovers fiction titles, so we’re extremely proud that we’ll be seeing more of her wonderful art in the exciting new season ahead!
On her senior call up, Lisa had this to say:
“Roy of the Rovers is both a fun and satisfying project to be involved in! I don't have the same childhood connection to Roy that a lot of my teammates have, but I was sold on our new take immediately. It's amazing to be working alongside these talented people who have such a clear vision for the story and I'm super excited to get to all the cool things we have lined up.“
Lisa’s artwork can also be seen in the Tammy & Jinty Special released recently, where Lisa drew an exclusive Rocky of the Rovers strip, and you can have your picture taken alongside Lisa’s Roy and Rocky at our current National Football Museum exhibition!
The next Season of Roy of the Rovers’ adventures begins later this year, and there’s some extremely exciting things in store…
If you’re not up to date, you can currently get all 6 books from Season 1 for just £30 in our online store!
