Giant Days 27 out today!

The new issue of Giant Days has emerged, in which Esther gets woke, at last, to the issues of society, and that definitely doesn’t cause any problems for her. OR DOES IT? Art by Max Sarin & Liz Fleming, colours by Whitney Cogar, lettering by Jim Campbell. In comic shops and on Comixology! Plus I have a few in my shop, with a scattering of back numbers too.

Bad Machinery vol 7 now available.

Bad Machinery 7 - The Case Of The Forked Road - is out now in bookstores, comic shops, and from me via Topatoco in an exclusive hardback edition (same price as the softcover for a limited period). As ever, the best way to support my work is to buy it directly from Topatoco.

This edition contains about a dozen new pages (explaining, at last, the mystery boys’ weird absence from the tale) and is in a 6x9″ portrait format that won’t spoil the line of a fitted suit, but WILL shelf up perfectly with your other BM collections.

Also available: Bad Machinery books 1-3 and books 4-6 in heavily discounted combo packs. The large format books are starting to go out of print, so complete your sets now (and ignore “in production” warnings - these will ship straight away).

[Unfortunately I don’t have any Bad Machinery 7s in my UK shop and I don’t know when I will have any - many apologies. When I can update you, I will.]

Two items of note

First up, I’ll be at Gosh Comics in London for Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, signing from 1-2PM with fellow Oni creators Sarah Graley (KIM REAPER, OUR SUPER ADVENTURE) and Marc Ellerby (RICK & MORTY, CHLOE NOONAN). There’s a free Bad Machinery book from Oni this FCBD which you can pick up… wherever comics are sold!

And Giant Days 26 is out on Wednesday. This issue takes you inside the strange and frightening world of Dean Thompson. Are you ready… for the DREAMSCAPE OF GUILDS? Get it in comic shops, from Comixology, or direct from me. If you missed the bonus-size issue 25, I still have a few of those left too.
