"The Lie of the Land: Ley Lines #23" by Simon Moreton
Ley Lines is a quarterly publication dedicated to exploring the intersection of comics and the various fields of art & culture that inspire us.
"The making of an English countryside"
When Alfred Watkins first mooted the existence of ancient trackways in the British countryside which he called ‘leys’ in 1922, he wanted to show how forgotten lessons about our past could still be visible to us in the landscape today - if we’re willing to look. This comic asks what it means to be ‘of the British countryside’ right now in this shitty period of history, and whether the millennia of deep history in the soil beneath our feet can tell us anything about what comes next.
