Illustration staff at the North Wales School of Art & Design were approached in November of 2008 by Frances Jones of the North East Wales Schools Library Service to run a series of practical workshops in local schools. The project was funded by the Basic Skills Agency and was designed to encourage reluctant male readers aged 12 - 14 to engage with the library services available and become interested in reading through graphic novels. The project was a partnership between Wrexham, Denbighshire and Flint County Councils, The North Wales Schools Library Service, The Basic Skills Agency and The North Wales School of Art & Design, part of Glyndŵr University.
