Two items of note

First up, I’ll be at Gosh Comics in London for Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, signing from 1-2PM with fellow Oni creators Sarah Graley (KIM REAPER, OUR SUPER ADVENTURE) and Marc Ellerby (RICK & MORTY, CHLOE NOONAN). There’s a free Bad Machinery book from Oni this FCBD which you can pick up… wherever comics are sold!

And Giant Days 26 is out on Wednesday. This issue takes you inside the strange and frightening world of Dean Thompson. Are you ready… for the DREAMSCAPE OF GUILDS? Get it in comic shops, from Comixology, or direct from me. If you missed the bonus-size issue 25, I still have a few of those left too.

Bad Machinery 1 Pocket Edition out today

In response to reader and retailer request, there’s a new, smaller version of The Case Of The Team Spirit out in comic shops today in a 6″x9″ format. I talked with Comics Alliance about it here!

Use findacomicshop.com or comicshoplocator.com to find your local comic book shop. It’s available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million, on sale March 28.

    Giant Days 24 is out March 1st, in your local comic shop, on Comixology, or from my shop (along with a few other back issues). Susan fights double pneumonia with the aid of an unexpected ally!

    Giant Days vol 4 out today

    Giant Days volume 4 is out in comic shops today (in bookstores in two weeks), collecting issues 13-16. Issue 13 features Esther’s return to Tackleford and reunion with many familiar faces, issue 14 is the house-hunting issue, issue 15 concerns a short film festival (and remains a personal favourite), and in issue 16, Daisy gets an acrid whiff of romance. 


    Still in stores (and on Comixology) is Giant Days 23, which I believe to be a particularly strong issue. If you can’t find one locally, I’ve got copies in my shop.

    Everybody loves Marc Ellerby’s Chloe Noonan: Monster Hunter, right? It’s £1.49 for more than 150 pages of it on Comixology, a bargain. At least once a month I entreat M-Ell (currently drawing Rick & Morty for Oni Press) to reactivate his star character. Because if he doesn’t, I will continue to foist drawings of my much-too-violent Noonan reimagining, like the one above, on the world.
