Giant Days out in March from BOOM! Box

I can’t remember if I’ve done a news post about this before, but there’s a new Giant Days 6-issue series coming in March from BOOM! Box, Boom Studios’ creator-owned imprint. I’m writing, with art by LISSA TREIMAN (I had to resist the urge to write “Laughing Lissa Treiman” there, Stan Lee style). 

I’ve done an interview with Comic Book Resources about it that hopefully answers any vexed questions you might have. The Previews order code for your local comic shop is JAN151155. Or ask for it by name!

eBooks off sale

Due to bizarre, short-sighted changes to the UK tax laws, which have hit everybody selling digital goods, I’ll no longer be selling eBooks via my shop. Hopefully this nonsense will be sorted out quickly and I can put them back up. This doesn’t effect my titles on sale at Comixology or via other platforms.
