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.

Book 2 Reviews

Dear reader, I could really do with a hand. Bad Machinery book 2 needs a little promotional push, and the best way you can help out - at no cost to yourself - is with a review on your local Amazon site, or Goodreads. If you’re reading this, you’ve almost certainly read The Case Of The Good Boy online (if not in print), and a few lines of considered recommendation from you will make a real difference.

Here’s where to find the book:

On Goodreads

Finally, here’s a very funny video review of books one and two by The Tweeks, on Comicmix
