THE FIRST MEN ON MERCURY

Today, 32 500+ copies of our Edwin Morgan comic adaptation, THE FIRST MEN ON MERCURY, are being distributed to all pupils in Glasgow Secondary schools, to celebrate National Poetry Day.

For those of you who have left school long ago or don't live in Glasgow, you can read the comic online at www.metaphrog.com/mercury. We wanted to make this site a little bit special, and so have added some behind the scenes information on the making of the comic. Educators will also find teaching notes for the classroom.

The project was originally commissioned and is published by the Association for Scottish Literary Studies.

Can physical copies of the comic be obtained if you're not a schoolkid in Glasgow?

If you contact the publisher on office@asls.org.uk, they may be able to provide you with copies. Thank you for kind interest!
