Watch the boy who sells his creations in shops around the world
Drew Marr lives with his parents in Dundee, Scotland. The comic book fan is selling his creations which have two concurrent storylines.
One series named The Rehabilitation of Doctor Eye – a story of an evil mastermind who turns good. Another series named Drunk Genie – a story of a djinn who fails to grant wishes as he is always drunk.
Drew has been creating characters since he was just 6. He says he takes between two to five months to finish his books.
Drew said: “I went to a convention in Dundee when I was quite young and I quite like colouring in, so I started making my own. The main character in Doctor Eye is an evil mastermind – I came up with the idea at school.”
“We had to create a character and I chose a supervillain. I made him the way he is today. I got the idea from some of the old Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet series.”
“I like things from the 20th Century, I get ideas and adapt them for the comics – things like Indiana Jones and James Bond.”
He wants to be a company owner and a businessman and says he has a lot of ideas in his mind. He is planning to complete a ten-part series in three years.
He makes his books from scratch in his bedroom which are sold in Washington DC, Sydney, the UK, and Ireland.
His mother, Kelly-Ann, said: “They are not traditional comics – Drew has come up with a new style, a new layout, and a new story structure. The comics have two timelines. He does most of it in his room.”
“Drew loves the Beano and the Dandy, and from the age of three we were visiting the Japanese Anime and comic book festival at the University of Dundee.”
Drew draws the books at home and then they are scanned and printed. He has also set up his own brand, Gold Lion Comics at such a young age and is inspiring millions.
