Although it might not appear it from the random tales and photos I've been sticking up here, the main aim of this blog is to help me make a fanzine about the travels taken by Bakunin and Kropotkin. In this post I'm just going to list what I imagine the pages might be - most of these are not yet written/drawn as such, but I do have the information available for them, and usually I have a location drawn. The order and so on still needs to be worked on, and some will most certainly be dropped.
