In print this week...

A great thing about The Beano is that the characters can interact in different strips. For the readers this gives a greater sense of the characters existing in one town (Beanotown of course) and for the artists it gives us a chance to draw characters we wouldn't normally do. Therefore I thought I'd put Walter as a guest star in my Pup Parade strip in this week's issue. 
The Beano No.3833, out today, £2.50.

Over in Toxic, there's a new monster threat in the form of a tree creature with a bum-shaped fruit on its branch. Anything can happen in comics, and I try to make Team Toxic as daft as possible. 
Toxic No.271, bagged with some great gifts, out now, £3.99.

Comic Fest this weekend!

I'll be in Northern Ireland on Friday 6th May and Saturday 7th May for the Enniskillen Comic Fest! It's my first visit so I'm looking forward to meeting readers who may have been unable to get over for the shows in England. There'll be lots of other comic guests there too of course including Laura Howell, Phil Winslade, Glenn Fabry, Davy Francis and more! 

Check out the event's Facebook page for more details:

This week's strips

There seems to be a food and drink theme to my strips this week! In The Beano, Fatty guest-stars in my Rasher strip, while over in Doctor Who Magazine No.499, the Eighth Doctor swigs an elixir in my Daft Dimension strip. 

Both available now from any good newsagent and supermarket!

New interview online

There's a new interview with me online at the Pipedream Comics website conducted by Olly MacNamee where I waffle on about comics. You'll find it here:

Ol' bobble hat is back!


The latest edition of online comic Aces Weekly has just gone live and it contains a brand new exclusive Combat Colin three-pager by me. This time ol' bobble hat is pitched against his best friend, Semi-Automatic Steve! What's going on? To read the whole story, sign up for Aces Weekly and see the strip in Volume 21, issue 7.
Only £6.99 for a seven issue volume. Buy it through Paypal!  Use any card!  Grab any of the great Previous Volumes or get right on board the currently-running volume with an ongoing subscription for JUST £1 - or just over a dollar or a Euro - per week!  A new issue of Aces Weekly is uploaded every Monday night. Each volume consists of 7 weekly parts, and then future volumes right on after, till they run out of great comics (unlikely ).  As soon as you hear via email that your payment's been accepted - usually no longer than 5 minutes - you can log in with your chosen password and get Aces Weekly on your tablet, laptop, desktop, or SMART TV!

Each issue consists of six stories, and I'm pleased that Marc Jackson is on board this latest issue too with a new delightfully daft Duckless story! Don't miss it!
This is the fourth new Combat Colin story I've done for Aces Weekly. You can read about the previous ones here:
