Here's a bit of blurb about the book that I've shamelessly lifted from it's Amazon page

Live from the Crypt is an hilarious information series with an undead chat show format where ghostly historical figures are interviewed by the crew of the show about their lives and experiences, featuring quirky illustrations, comic strips and Q&A-style text. In this volume, Henry VIII shares his relationship woes involving his six wives, and we hear from his closest advisors and his motley kids about the ups, downs and head-chopping hijinks of his reign.


Sample artworks

In all, I created 32 pages of comic and 20 or so spot illustrations to accompany John's text.

Note - artwork shown without speech bubbles; you'll need to get a copy of the book to read that!
