As of today, the Scary Go Round Subscription program is closed. If you contributed at any level, thank you so much. Your donations kept this show on the road for several years. With work outside webcomics taking up more of my time, it feels like time to bring down the curtain. But thank you again!
Here’s my albums of the year list, and here’s a Spotify playlist with a song off each (except the number one, which was too mad, so I put on the preceding non-album single instead). ENJOY, my fine friends.

It’s the most… wonderful… time of the year! Giant Days 43 is out and it’s the Christmas issue. Obviously I can’t line Giant Days Christmas up with real Christmas because there are 18 monthly issues of Giant Days per in-story year. But this year it falls at the exact point that Sainsburys wheels out the big tins of Quality Street: slightly too early.
It’s another high-quality issue from your top team of me, MAX SARIN (art), WHITNEY COGAR (colours) and JIM CAMPBELL (letters).
Get it from your local comic shop or on Comixology!
PS there is more holiday-themed action at the end of next month with the 2018 HOLIDAY SPECIAL which I have written and drawn myself at great personal risk.
