Shut Up About Bitcoin shirt

To celebrate several years of not designing a t-shirt, I have designed a t-shirt! It’s for everyone who is tired of “cryptocurrency” chat. Which I reckon is almost everybody in the world so we’re gonna sell billions of them, maybe invest heavily while the getting is good!.

On sale here - along with many other fine Scary Go Round products.

A new broom

My cartoon kingdom is always in a varying state of disarray, but I’ve spent today trying to tidy up my mess. Now that Bad Machinery is complete, I’ve put all 10 cases, plus Space IsThe Place and The Big Hiatus, in their own sub-site, where you can read them end to end without interruption from weird side-stories and fill-ins.

Fans of weird side stories and fill-ins, fear not. The New Bobbins archive now positively bulges with everything that I’ve done with the wider universe from 2013 to 2017, with a new story guide and everything. The epic longeurs, the birth stories, the flagrant fan-service, the Desmond Fishmans - all there.

And Bobbins.horse may have lost its domain, but you can still read it here. I’ve also updated the NEW READER GUIDE so you can navigate all the other backwaters of my work.

So I guess the question now is, what is the future for Scary Go Round? A lot of comics and books came out with my name on them over the last couple of years, so I’m trying to steer clear of self-publishing for a while. As a result, I’ve made a lot of comics that probably aren’t going to be printed anywhere, they’ll just exist here. 

I’ve cleared out the main archive on the site to contain only comics from the start of 2018, this weird new era. While I’m working on the monthly Giant Days book (and another, soon-to-be-announced project), format and schedule will ebb and flow a bit more than usual, but I’m pleased to still be here and I’m glad you are too.
