Giant Days 43 is out today

It’s the most… wonderful… time of the year! Giant Days 43 is out and it’s the Christmas issue. Obviously I can’t line Giant Days Christmas up with real Christmas because there are 18 monthly issues of Giant Days per in-story year. But this year it falls at the exact point that Sainsburys wheels out the big tins of Quality Street: slightly too early. 

It’s another high-quality issue from your top team of me, MAX SARIN (art), WHITNEY COGAR (colours) and JIM CAMPBELL (letters).

Get it from your local comic shop or on Comixology!

PS there is more holiday-themed action at the end of next month with the 2018 HOLIDAY SPECIAL which I have written and drawn myself at great personal risk.

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.
