Martial Hearts Demo


Al Davison is an English cartoonist who was born with spina bifida — doctors thought he would never walk — and his graphic novel THE SPIRAL CAGE chronicled growing up and struggling to be accepted as a whole person. Despite his handicap he’s studied martial arts for 30 years, and gained a couple of black belts. Here’s a video of Davison putting on an MA demonstration he recently put up on his MySpace page. He also runs a comics shop in Conventry called the Astral Gypsy which just celebrated its first anniversary.

If you ever run into Al at a show, chat him up — he’s one of the most unforgettable characters you’ll ever meet.

  1. I’ve met Al a couple of times and him and his wife are the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. Also Spiral Dreams is one of the most moving graphic novels I’ve ever read (right up there with Maus IMHO) and apparently Al’s almost finished volume 2…
