The loss of the Comet was the first steamboat disaster to inspire a nationwide production of broadsides. Songs about the event were printed in Gateshead , Wales and London. William Harriston (the author of the 'Rothesay Castle Steam Boat') wrote an epic poem about the event which he published himself in Glasgow.
