Bad Machinery 6 is available at Topatoco!

The sixth Bad Machinery book - The Case Of The Unwelcome Visitor, is now available at Topatoco. I get all the money if you buy it that way. (If you’re in the UK, I’ll have copies at the start of December, so hold on a couple of weeks). It’s available in softcover and hardcover versions, and there are combo packs (Read More...

Bobbins 2016 book now in my shop

I’ve made a fine (also, fancy) book collecting all my Bobbins.horse strips from 2016 (72 of them!) along with some chapter commentary and an introductory essay. I made 500 for the Thought Bubble Festival, and 200 have already gone to good homes, so if you want one, this is your chance

It won’t be available from Topatoco and I won’t add it to Comixology until this run is exhausted.

If you want to mop up all my recent minis and save some cash, it’s available in a combo pack with Expecting To Fly and Mordawwa too. There are only 100 Expecting To Flys left so this offer is somewhat limited.

That’s it! I hope you’re able to grab one if you want one!

Giant Days 20

Somehow there is another issue of Giant Days out today. I know it’s been… ONE WEEK! It’s issue 20. The ladies move into their 2nd year house and instantly discover treachery and malfeasance. Written by me, art by MAX SARIN (pencils), LIZ FLEMING (inks), and WHITNEY COGAR (colours) with letters by JIM CAMPBELL and a cover by LISSA TREIMAN. In comic shops and via Comixology!

Giant Days Holiday Special - out today

Almost a year ago, Boom asked me if I’d like to do a Giant Days holiday special. I said yes, then wished (on multiple occasions) that I’d said no. It started at 22 pages. Then it was 32. Then it was 40. It wasn’t Christmas any more. I was trying to write three projects at once. But there was one thing that kept me going - the chance to reunite with original series artist LISSA TREIMAN. There was no way I was giving her anything other than my best. And I couldn’t be more proud of the results. 

So pick up GIANT DAYS HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1 for a 32-page Christmas tale from Lissa and I, plus an 8-page Tackleford bonus from me and CAANAN GRALL, one of my favourite cartoonists.

I can say - without question - this is the best 40-page comic I have ever plotted and broken down into pages on a train at 6.30 in the morning. None better. HAPPY HOLIDAYS WHOEVER YOU ARE.

[Get it from your local comic shop, or Comixology]

Last chance to pre-order Bad Machinery 6 from Diamond.

If you get your books from your local comic shop (and why wouldn’t you?), the final order cutoff for BAD MACHINERY VOL. 6 is next Monday, October 24. The book is packed with new pages, revised artwork, and exclusive extracts from Mr Gravy’s vile, self-serving autobiography which I believe should not be missed.

The Diamond order code is JUL161781. You can find your local comic shop with findacomicshop.com or comicshoplocator.com.

Here’s Kieron Gillen’s comic on why pre-ordering this way is inherently A Good Thing.
