Everybody loves Marc Ellerby’s Chloe Noonan: Monster Hunter, right? It’s £1.49 for more than 150 pages of it on Comixology, a bargain. At least once a month I entreat M-Ell (currently drawing Rick & Morty for Oni Press) to reactivate his star character. Because if he doesn’t, I will continue to foist drawings of my much-too-violent Noonan reimagining, like the one above, on the world.
2016′s successful side-project Bobbins.horse is back today for a new run, a second season if you will. My hope is to run it every Friday, plus occasional Saturdays when time allows, and do a few week-long runs as the Scary Go Round main feature when I’m on print deadlines and mashing out a hundred pages a minute.
I’m not going to run them on the main site unless I do a full week, as it breaks up the main story for people steaming through the archives. You can read it at bobbins.horse, and sign up for its RSS feed (or the SGR Facebook page) to find out when it updates.
Giant Days 22 is out, call your friends, call your family, call the fire brigade, it’s an issue heavy on unbridled lust. Think Jilly Cooper’s “Lady Boss” if you want to calibrate your internal thermometer. Available from today in comic shops and on Comixology.
My shop has reopened, with a few Giant Days back issues still available in extremely limited quantities. I should have some issue 22s later this week.
A few people have asked me where they can re-read MORDAWWA, the epic “Erin Winters as Queen of Hell and The Boy as a horse” one-shot. I took it off the site once it was published in a book - given the postal constraints of this time of year, you might be best off getting it digitally at Comixology.
