Meanwhile... Issue 2


I've got a new 7 page comic strip in issue 2 of comics anthology Meanwhile..., out now.

You can get it in comic shops or buy it online from the publishers, Soaring Penguin, here: 

There's some great stuff in it, like Gary Spencer Millidge's 'Strangehaven', an almost photo-realist continuing story about a mysterious village, and David Hine and Mark Stafford's creepy 'Bad Bad Place', as featured on the cover.
My story, 'INC.', is my first attempt at writing a longer story that isn't about taking the piss out of famous musicians. I guess you could call it Sci-fi. God knows.


Bleeding Cool included Meanwhile 2 in their Best 11 comics of 2014: 

And here's another wee review from Down The Tubes:
Meanwhile… Back with a Bang, features more from David Hine, Mark Stafford, new Krent Able strip

Best Of The Year for the Forbidden Planet blog


It's that time of the year again - here's my fave films, comics and books of 2014 :

I'd also recommend Charles Burns' 'Sugarskull' and Terry Hayes 'I Am Pilgrim'. They'd have easily made the list, but I read them after I wrote it.

Blatherington Manor


 I drew a 5 page story, 'Blatherington Manor', for 'The Fitzroy' comic anthology, and it's available now from all comic shops of taste and refinement. It's a comic tie-in to the forthcoming The Fitzroy movie.
You can also get it online at the Dead Canary Comics website: 
Dead Canary Comics | Welcome to The Fitzroy

Here's the rather swanky cover (not by me):


From the back of the comic:
'1950's Britain, the UK is covered in a poisonous gas but society struggles on, confident in the belief that nothing important has really changed.
The Fitzroy explores this world through six twisted tales of death, mayhem and the finest tea from the dark edges of the British Isles.'


Blatherington Manor, written by C.S. Baker, is a charming tale of post-apocalyptic survival, Jeeves and Wooster style. This is the first time I've drawn a story that I didn't write - and also probably the first story I've done that doesn't contain any blood, death, or spurting genitals. I thought it'd make a change, and I think it turned out pretty well. I had fun, as always, designing the characters and nailing their facial expressions..
