By Night 4 is out today!

BY NIGHT #4 is out today, so head to your local comic shop or get it on Comixology. While obviously I, as writer of the series, am unlikely to tell you it is terrible, I can assure you that this one features my best jokes and some genuine peril. 

But that’s not all.

It also has a lot of references to the 1980s because that’s what people love now, the 1980s. Have you seen Stranger Things? The 1980s. My guarantee to you: after you’ve read BY NIGHT #4, you will find other entertainment properties’ 1980s references substandard. Let me know how you get on.

I am very proud of the work we are doing on By Night, here are the covers by Christine Larsen and myself. I’ll have packs of issues 1-4 (Jally and C-Larsen variants) for sale at Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend.

Giant Days 42 & volume 8 out now!

Giant Days 42 is in shops today! With art by MAX SARIN & WHITNEY COGAR (colours), letters by JIM CAMPBELL, and written as ever, by me. This month, Esther deals with a lot of feelings. Also contains some hot Babylon 5 content. It’s back baby!!! In comic shops and available digitally from Comixology.

ALSO OUT: Giant Days volume 8, containing issues 33-36. Get it wherever books are sold, specifically Giant Days books. You probably can’t get it from the Christian bookshop or a shop that just sells Hanes Manuals.

By Night issue 3 is out today!

Bad Machinery/Scary Go Round remains in the wilderness, but fortunately, every month there is a comic written by myself to suspiciously similar specifications. So check out BY Night, expertly drawn by CHRISTINE LARSEN and superbly coloured by SARAH STERN!

This issue: Heather and Jane are missing on the other side of a portal, so sad dad Chip and beta-male Barney must form an alliance to locate them. But maybe they’ll find something else instead… friendship? Or something else that isn’t friendship, because frankly they’re not 100% compatible.

I should also add that this issue is the first EVER direct market title loaded with a baffling number of references to Quincy ME, a show that probably isn’t even in syndication any more. 

Available  - with a cover by Christine or a cover by me (John Allison) - in comic shops, or digitally via Comixology, I commend BY NIGHT #3 to the house.

Giant Days 41 is out today!

We’re into a run of GIant Days issues that I’m very proud of. The adjustments I made for the ladies’ final year of school are bedding in and Max Sarin is doing her best drawing yet, ably assisted by Whitney Cogar. So I present to you issue 41, which features not only SEXY Halloween costumes (the only kind now available), but also an Ubuntu-based mystery for the sleuths among you. You can get it in comic shops, via Amazon for Kindle, or on Comixology.

There’s also a big Comixology sale on Giant Days trades, so grab a few if you’ve never checked out the series.

BY NIGHT issue 2 out today!

Issue 2 of my new series By Night is out today. If issue 1 was a grounded look at two young women who have come back home from university because there was nothing else to do with their lives, issue 2 is the true start of their loopy journeys to a mad pocket universe… and some of the same stuff that was in issue 1. That’s the By Night way. There’s more brilliant art by CHRISTINE LARSEN (pencils & inks) and SARAH STERN (colours), with letters by JIM CAMPBELL.

Get it on Comixology, for Kindle via Amazon, and at your local comic shop. Here’s a six-page preview.
