NEW BAD MACHINERY BOOK IS OUT NOW NOW NOW!!!

image

I’m pleased to announce that the new Bad Machinery collection, The Case Of The Simple Soul, is out now! It collects the third case, with about thirty new pages of story and “bonus items”.

CAN I GET IT DIRECTLY FROM YOU?
Yes! You can get it from Topatoco in handsome softcover and limited hardcover versions. There’s also a cut-price combo pack with all three Bad Machinery books. Because it ships from the USA, I can’t do you a signed copy, but you can order a personalised bookplate (shipping is free).

CAN I GET IT FROM MY LOCAL COMIC SHOP?
Yes! If they don’t have it in stock, they can get it directly from Diamond (order code: AUG141585). If you’re in the UK, you can get it from (among others) Page 45 in Nottingham, Travelling Man in Leeds and Manchester, Gosh! and Orbital in London, and Dave’s Comics in Brighton.

CAN I GET IT FROM REGULAR BOOKSTORES?
In the USA and Canada, this shouldn’t be a problem. The ISBN number is 978-1620101933.

CAN I GET IT FROM ONLINE BOOKSTORES (BY WHICH I MEAN AMAZON?)
Yes! Amazon should have it in stock from next week. You can get it from Amazon.co.uk here and Amazon.com here. If you use the UK link, I get a cut via Amazon Associates.

That’s it, that’s all! Thanks for buying volumes 1 and 2 so we can keep these coming!

Desert Island Comics

I did a Desert Island Comics interview on the Forbidden Planet blog, talking about the comics that formed me as an “entity”. Great memories. Great… memories…

EXPECTING TO FLY now available in print

I’ve just added the Expecting To Fly 2-parter to my shop. It’s sold as a 2-book set, but if you bought book 1 from me at a convention, or from a store, you can get a copy of issue 2 on its own. 

If you’re coming to Thought Bubble in Leeds next weekend, I’ll have these with me. Otherwise, why not invest? I feel like these might be… a good present… for someone who likes comics. Even if that someone is yourself.
