San Diego Comic Convention 2009 07/16/2009
DC/Wildstorm sent me my signing schedule for this years San Diego comic convention, which I'm delighted to be attending again this year after a few years away. You can find me on the DC/Wildstorm stand with Joshua Ortega and Jim Lee at these times:
First edition sold out! 04/27/2009
OK, well maybe not sold out yet, but we're going back to press so we can fulfill the orders we're getting. Very exciting. This also fives me the chance to include the very kind words other authors have gifted me - Mike Carey, Paul Cornell, to name a couple - and put the fantastic SFX quote on the cover! I'm still so delighted about my review. 4 stars. I would have been happy with three! :)
New Readings up!. 12/01/2008
This is just a quick post to introduce the world to an almost forgotten, much maligned art movement from the 1960's called Beardism.
GoW sells out in UK - plus art for sale! 10/17/2008
I haven't had a sell-out since Death's Head Gold in '92, so that's AMAZINGLY cool news for me! I hear it's selling fast or sold out in most US shops too. I know for sure three NY stores were out at the first weekend, so here's hoping... Been getting fantastic unprompted feedback from my fellow writer and artist friends, which counts for a whole lot. Much appreciated. You know who you are, lovely people!
Continuing a music theme... 10/14/2008
For the very best kind of respite from the Groundhog Day of comic drawing there's little - other than writing - that gives me more pleasure than crafting a tune or three. I created this Mamtor music page so I could put it online and hide behind the anonymity - but now I'm over 40 I find myself caring a little less what people think. You live once, after all! Why not live it to the full and enjoy your creations, however successful or unsuccessful they may be?
More GIANT-SIZE BAND-THING... 10/11/2008
Here's another link to my favourite bit of the night that just went up recently. It's a night I'll never forget. That's the legend that is Simon Bisley screaming at the start, and the astonishingly talented Dougie Braithwaite you can hear shouting "We love you!" Such fond memories. :)
GEARS OF WAR 10/10/2008
Well, it's out! A big, textured bloodbath amongst the wreckage of faded glory. So, it's a computer game, sure, but I'm seeing this as a tribute, artwise, to the classic UK war comics of the 70s, and 2000ad staples such as Rogue Trouper. Old-school blood and thunder!
And here's the FIRST sneaky peek at art from #2...
GIANT-SIZE BAND-THING FOOTAGE! 10/09/2008
Well, as if being told about it wasn't enough, here's a link to one audience member who got his phone out and filmed most of the show... :)
Giant-Size Band Thing at Brumcon 10/06/2008
Well, another Brum con over. And I'm feeling older.
