Murder She Writes at Topatoco

As promised, a quick note to say that you can get Murder She Writes at Topatoco again - it’s in packs with THAT and the original 3-issue run of Giant Days. Thank you for your interest!

Back in print. Back in your hearts.

ITEM! I have reprinted Murder She Writes, my fan-favourite 40-page Charlotte & Shelley team-up story from 2012. You can get it from me in the UK here and it should soon be back in stock soon at Topatoco if you’re anywhere else or you don’t want it personalised (I will keep you posted). 

ITEM! In equally exciting reprint news, if you missed Giant Days 1 or 2 from Boom Studios, they’re now available in one, combined edition, for the low low price of $3.99 at your local comic shop. Entitled the Orientation Edition, it has a new cover by me, JOLTING JOHN ALLISON.

ITEM! In case the news passed you by, Giant Days has been extended from six to twelve issues. Thank you so very much for your support of the series. It’s been an equal thrill to hear from longtime readers who’ve enjoyed it and new readers who are picking it up for the first time, drawn in by the siren song of the art by LAUDABLE LISSA TREIMAN. I know that it’s been selling out after a few days in many shops, so put in a standing order to make sure you don’t miss it.

ITEM! Bad Machinery book 4, The Case Of The Lonely One, is out in October - more news very soon.

T-Shirt Domination

Through the auspices of new and terrifying t-shirt syndicate “T-Shirt Diplomacy”, I have reactivated several of my old designs. If you want one of them, they’re all here, all priced $19.77 + shipping. If there’s something else you’d like brought back, or a design I showed but never made, drop me a line! The sky is now the limit.
