Giant Days vol 6 is out today.

Giant Days volume 6, containing issues 21-24 (I think that’s right!) is in comic shops today, other bookstores next week. What else can I tell you about this thundering good tome? Only that it was written by me, pencilled by MAX SARIN, inked by LIZ FLEMING, coloured by WHITNEY COGAR, lettered by JIM CAMPBELL and edited by JASMINE AMIRI & SHANNON WATTERS.

In this volume: burglary, lust, a dinner party, death.

Lakes International Comic Art Festival

Just a quick note to say that I’ll no longer be appearing as a guest LICAF this weekend. I sincerely apologise to anyone who is disappointed; I was greatly looking forward to the event but felt that I could not in good conscience attend. This was my last planned event for 2017, I hope to see you all somewhere, anywhere, in 2018.

Thought Bubble Festival!

Hi hi! It’ll be at the Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds this Saturday and Sunday (23-24th Sept) in the Comixology Marquee in Millennium Square, outside the City Art Museum.

Here’s a map of the new city centre location, which is “well convenient”.

I’ll be at table 10, sharing with Marc Ellerby (we’re listed under his name). In a change from previous years, I will only be at my table for set times on the Saturday, which I’ll post up on the day. On Sunday I should be in situ for most of the day.

I won’t have a huge amount of stock this year but I’ll bring whatever books are in the shed, you can get your Giant Days comics signed, and based on the direction of the wind, I may open up Britain’s most powerful Deadpool drawing department once more. Most of all I just look forward to seeing you there.
