A Temporary Interruption

I will be taking a week off Bad Machinery next week (July 7th-11th) to go on holiday. I’m sorry. But filling in (from July 4th, and including a big Saturday strip), I’ll have a week of Bobbins featuring the return of a much loved/loathed character. Loved and loathed in equal measure. So get ready for a week of comics that you’ll either enjoy, or hate. I can’t do anything about it now. I’m in France and I’m not looking at the Internet.

If you want to catch up on the pre-amble to the upcoming story, start here.

A note: the RSS feed will not update from July 7th-11th.

New teatowel!

I’m very limited (by non-unpleasant “circumstances”) as to the items I can sell out of my UK shop at the moment, but I do have a new teatowel design for you! IN PIE WE CRUST!
Sorry that it’s not possible to get my signed prints, custom postcards, small commissions etc from me at the moment, but there’s a huge range of Scary Go Round merchandise available from Topatoco at the moment, and the exchange rate should make it all pretty agreeable to UK pockets right now.

Book 2 Reviews

Dear reader, I could really do with a hand. Bad Machinery book 2 needs a little promotional push, and the best way you can help out - at no cost to yourself - is with a review on your local Amazon site, or Goodreads. If you’re reading this, you’ve almost certainly read The Case Of The Good Boy online (if not in print), and a few lines of considered recommendation from you will make a real difference.

Here’s where to find the book:

On Amazon.co.uk
On Amazon.com
On Goodreads

Finally, here’s a very funny video review of books one and two by The Tweeks, on Comicmix

Manchester, UK signing

I’ll be doing a signing at Travelling Man in Manchester on April 5th at 3PM, drawing all over copies of The Case Of The Good Boy. Here’s the Facebook event. I’ve never done an in-store signing before due to “fear of no-one turning up” (a real medical condition), so just imagine my gratitude if/when you do.

Bad Machinery Book 2 available now!

I’m proud to announce that Bad Machinery Book 2: the Case Of The Good Boy is now available through Oni Press! 

I’ve done more than thirty new pages for this edition, plus bonus material from the top drawer. We’re all proud of this book and I hope you enjoy it.

The best way (for me) that you can get the it is through Topatoco. It’s available in softcover and VERY LIMITED hardcover, and in a money-saving combo pack with Book 1.

If you’re outside the US/Canada, you can get it from your local comic shop - if they don’t have it, ask them to order it for you. Any bookshop will be able to order it for you - its ISBN is 9781620101148 -  it’s not in normal bookshops until March 12th.

In the UK, I recommend the following stores:
Travelling Man (Leeds, Manchester), Page 45 (Nottingham), Gosh! Comics and Orbital (London), Dave’s Comics (Brighton).

Most importantly of all, tell your friends, and hopefully these collections will keep coming.
