Jaime Huxtable: Afanc Three
Llangorse Lake, a long time ago. A strange figure dwells on the water’s edge, striking fear into the locals and wreaking havoc among the wildlife. Oh, and it looks a bit like a beaver. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the Afanc. Afanc is an all-ages comic strip about a misunderstood lake monster and the bungling villagers who want rid of him, based on a Welsh legend originating from the Brecon Beacons. Will Trefor’s trap work? Does that horse really talk? When will Rhodri stop barking? And has our furry friend met his match in Dai The Destroyer? Find out all this and more in Afanc Volume Three!
