What you want at this most seasonal time of the year is a story that is simultaneously a 40-page standalone Giant Days extravaganza and ALSO a Scary Go Round universe unifier that takes you into the weeds of Shelley Winters’ Destroy History London years, right? And it should be tribute to a. Love Actually and b. Bridget Jones except c. I’ve watched both of those films once, years ago, and not particularly carefully? OF COURSE!!!

If you want to own Bad Machinery volume 3 in a handy smaller size, head to your local comic shop or bookshop today. If you want it in the fast-disappearing original larger size, head to Topatoco.
Due to the fact that I am working on some Exciting New Things in 2018, I am extending Scary Go Round indefinitely into 2018. I don’t think I can make up an entirely new webcomic whole cloth alongside these other (mystery) tasks. So I guess you’ll be able to continue visiting Tackleford into its 20th year. The current story (Hard Yards) will end as planned on December 18th. The SENSES-SHATTERING CONCLUSION will now be re-branded as the PRE-CHRISTMAS IMBROGLIO. I have no idea what will happen in 2018′s stories yet, we’ll see what I can dig out of the shattered timber and glowing embers of what remains on December 19th.
Addendum: apologies to all Robert Cop fans.
Brought to you by me, MAX SARIN (pencils), LIZ FLEMING (inks), WHITNEY COGAR (colours) and JIM CAMPBELL (letters), this unprecedented thirty-second pamphlet in the series deals with housing issues, spiders, worms, industrial spaces and skateboarding. It’s all killer and no filler: get it in your chiller.
NOTE YE: The Giant Days 2017 holiday special is out on November 22nd, 40 pages of festive intensity drawn by superstar guest artist JENN ST-ONGE (Jem & The Misfits). It is somehow both a standalone issue and a long-awaited bridge to a lost part of classic SGR continuity. YOU WILL LIKE IT.
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. Cover by LISSA TREIMAN.
In this volume: burglary, lust, a dinner party, death.
