Case Of The Modern Men is over, Expecting To Fly begins

The Case Of The Modern Men is over! If you want to read it from the start, you can do that here. Bad Machinery is now on a break, probably until the new year. Thanks to everyone who wrote emails or sent tweets to say they enjoyed it.

A few people wrote and asked, “what was the supernatural element of that story”? When I started the the last case, I wanted to downplay that aspect a bit. Maybe King Gary’s scooter was evil and cursed, but maybe it wasn’t. It didn’t really matter to me either way. I’m always more interested in other parts of the story. 

After six months of mods v rockers, I’m ready to do other things for a while. I’ve spent a lot of time over the last year or so going back into the histories of long-running characters, and Expecting To Fly is the last part of that. It’s a different kind of story, with a slightly different tone. It runs for ten weeks, up to the start of November. (As always, no prior knowledge of my troublesome back catalogue should be required to enjoy these events.)

Then, according to my lightly pencilled comics itinerary, there’s a new Murder She Writes story in the run-up to Christmas. The only thing I can currently tell you is that it is about space.

After that, Bad Machinery should return. I’ll do my best to keep you busy until then.

New interview, Giant Days on Comixology

Comixology users can now get all three issues of Giant Days on the platform. And I’ve done a big interview about Giant Days with Pipedream Comics to celebrate the firing of these books into the cyber-aether

A Temporary Interruption

I will be taking a week off Bad Machinery next week (July 7th-11th) to go on holiday. I’m sorry. But filling in (from July 4th, and including a big Saturday strip), I’ll have a week of Bobbins featuring the return of a much loved/loathed character. Loved and loathed in equal measure. So get ready for a week of comics that you’ll either enjoy, or hate. I can’t do anything about it now. I’m in France and I’m not looking at the Internet.

If you want to catch up on the pre-amble to the upcoming story, start here.

A note: the RSS feed will not update from July 7th-11th.

New teatowel!

I’m very limited (by non-unpleasant “circumstances”) as to the items I can sell out of my UK shop at the moment, but I do have a new teatowel design for you! IN PIE WE CRUST!
Sorry that it’s not possible to get my signed prints, custom postcards, small commissions etc from me at the moment, but there’s a huge range of Scary Go Round merchandise available from Topatoco at the moment, and the exchange rate should make it all pretty agreeable to UK pockets right now.
